“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 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! I am still waiting to be granted the right to work by the Home Office and sharing my love for food is a really great way to keep me calm and happy through this long, uncertain process. I am very excited to teach you authentic Nigerian cuisine, I promise you wont be disappointed!”
Learn the secrets to cooking a range of delicious Nigerian dishes, followed by a sit-down dinner with Elizabeth and other participants.
This is your chance to learn a brand new cuisine, support an amazing cause, and eat great food!
The class will take place within our Room to Breathe exhibition and attendees will also have the chance to look around the exhibition.
Tickets cost £35 (plus Eventbrite booking fee). This includes the cost of the cookery class, dinner and an optional guided tour of our current exhibitions. Click here to book via Eventbrite.
Migrateful is a cookery and language initiative where asylum seekers, refugees and migrants struggling to access employment in the UK due to legal and linguistic barriers, teach their traditional cuisines to the public.
What to expect
During a Migrateful cookery class, you will work within your group to prepare dishes to be served family-style. Some dishes are prepared by the chef and demonstrated to you while some dishes will have you preparing it from beginning to end, while learning our chef’s authentic techniques from their home country. Our classes appeal to those interested in learning international recipes, practising a different language and in meeting new people for a cultural exchange in an intimate setting, as well as to those wishing to support migrants and refugees struggling to rebuild their lives.
