A TV chef is hosting a new supper club this month.
Tobi Akingbolagun from Lewisham, semi-finalist of BBC1’s Britain’s Best Home Cook, will follow up the success of his June supperclub with a new four course menu.
Tobi will host lunch and dinner sittings at the Pill Box in Bethnal Green on Saturday 8 September. The food will marry his passion for traditional Nigerian fare with contemporary techniques and seasonal, local produce.
“For me it’s about sharing my style of cooking and the fun I have doing it,” said the South London-born Gastronome.
“It’s not Nigerian cuisine, it’s not British cuisine – it’s about opening up a new space and introducing Nigerian flavours to as wide a range of people as possible.”
Tobi’s creativity was celebrated by Mary Berry during the Britain’s Best Home Cook competition when she named his butternut squash tarte tatin “Britain’s next favourite pud”.
