Learn the secrets to cooking a range of vegan Nigerian dishes, followed by a sit-down dinner with Elizabeth.
My name is Elizabeth, I’m a mother of three from the Western part of Nigeria and I love cooking. My passion for cooking started from when I was a young girl and carried all the way to boarding school and then at university until I got married. I was always finding excuses to rustle up something in the kitchen! From baking little treats to handling large cookings for family parties, I have found myself constantly cooking for friends and family. I have had years of volunteering at a weekly soup kitchen in the heart of Tottenham and much recently at Hackney Migrant Center. This passion brought me to Migrateful and the experience has been awesome. Not only do I get to learn various types of dishes but I also get to meet people from so many parts of the world! For someone who doesn’t travel around much like me, that’s the best part! I get to sneak a peak into all these countries… an absolute pleasure! Sharing my love for food is a really great way to feel a connexion with my roots, seeing the pleasure on people’s faces when they eat my food is the icing on top of the cake!
Thank you to Farewell for so kindly letting us use their space.

This is a family style cookery class where we will collectively prepare 3 or 4 dishes. The chef 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. The chef 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.
