Welcome to our family style cookery class!
This cookery class will be taught by the wonderful Cuban chef Lola at the Migrateful Cookery School in Clerkenwell. We are so excited to welcome you to Migrateful’s very own Cookery School! The cookery school has allowed us put down roots and provide a sense of continuity for our chefs; a place that we can all grow into. A place full of personality, people, community spirit, and of course, delicious food!
We have a wonderful little mini bar at the school and you’ll be able to purchase drinks from our menu to go with the dinner to enjoy.
This class for 12 participants is not socially distanced. For those seeking a Covid-secure cookery class, please see our online events.
This is a family style cookery class where we will collectively prepare 4 dishes. Chef Lola will divide the class into groups with each one responsible for creating 1 of the dishes. You are also free to move around during the class to learn about the other dishes. Chef Lola will recap each of the dishes throughout the evening and at the end of the class so that everyone can learn about all of the dishes. You will also be emailed the recipes after the class.
A message from our Chef Lola:
“I am Lola and I am from Cuba. I like to make people laugh. I often can’t find the words in English, but I find a theatrical way to express myself especially when I’m teaching my recipes. I am passionate about Cuban food and I like teaching. I’m happy to speak Spanish in my classes and also teach some Cuban salsa moves. In Cuba I was a vet working with farm animals. I came to the UK 12 years ago to live with my daughter and her son. I only speak Spanish at home so I’ve never managed to learn English which feels very isolating when you live in a country where you can’t speak the language. I’m 72 years old, and I’ve decided I’m determined to try to learn English. Migrateful is helping me to do that because I get to practice English with my cookery students. I came from a very poor family in Cuba so I really value every meal I eat. One of my favourite dishes to teach is called “Congrí” which has black beans and white rice. This dish is about celebrating diversity in Cuba, when white and black people mix together.”
