It was a spectacular feast in Lagos, Nigeria, where I was invited by GTBank to host a masterclass. This was a special event in its second year, where sme’s and wonderful African and Nigerian made food and drink is celebrated.
What an honour it was to share my recipes with everyone, especially over five hundred of whom sat in the theatre for my masterclass. It was the perfect season for fresh fruits especially mangoes which starred in my recipe and will star in my menus all summer, as I do love cooking with such wonderful and seasonal fruits.
A host of wonderful Nigerian and international chefs and food personalities like Brian Malarkey, Jehan Powell, Raphael Oduntoye of La Petite Maison on Mayfair, Chef Eros and others hosted masterclasses to the delight of those who got those hot seats!
I cooked steamed fish in green leaves, my African inspired poisson en papillote, with a sweet and spicy mango purée and my ‘skinny’ spinach. I’ll be sharing the complete recipes soon. You will love it especially for a light yet flavourful summer feast. In the meantime enjoy my little video.
