About this Event

Nothing beats a home-cooked meal shared with family! And this is what inspires our Family Style Cookery Classes, a fun, laid-back homestyle cooking experience. Here, you will learn to prepare different dishes and then enjoy them with people who, like you, fuel our mission of supporting refugee and migrant chefs on their journey to integration. It’s a cookery class with a conscience, like they say!

Your class will be led by our wonderful Chef Charity from Nigeria at in Peckham, London.

At our Family Style Cookery Classes, you will be grouped with other participants and prepare dishes together as a team. Think of Chef Charity as the head of the family! She will take care of dividing the class into groups, and each group will be responsible for creating one of the dishes. Of course, you are welcome and encouraged to move around during the class to learn about the other dishes being prepared. Throughout the evening, Chef Charity will share stories about their food and culture, and explain how to prepare each of the dishes so you come away with some new cooking tricks and inspiration from Nigeria. You will also be emailed the recipes after the class.

A message from our Chef Charity:

“My name is Charity. I am of Nigerian origin and part of the Igbo/Igo people (an ethnic group in Nigeria). I was born in Lagos but have been living in the UK for the past 10 years and this is home now. I’m the mother of three girls, age 23, 7 and 4 and live with them and my husband in London. My husband is also a chef. My girls keep me busy!

My mother died when I was very little and I was brought up by my grandmother who was my backbone. She gave me courage and wisdom to become something in life. She always told me how smart I was and I have always been the first person to ask a question. My grandmother also taught me how to cook.

I come from a big family and love nothing more than cooking for them. I’m always pushed into the kitchen by all my family who love my food. Outside food I love watching films, particularly horror films and comedies. As well as cooking, I love dancing and music and am going to play some Nigerian music in my Migrateful classes, so feel free to dance along.

I heard about Migrateful through another charity called WINGS which supports women and children that don’t have status in the UK. I cook for the staff and volunteers at WINGS and my jollof rice is very popular there”.
