An amazing oppurtinty to taste an authentic home-cooked Ethiopian cuisine!

Ethiopian cuisine characteristically consists of vegetable and spicy meat dishes, in the form a thick stew, served atop injera, a large sourdough flatbread, which is made out of fermented teff flour.

At the heart of my supper club stands the idea of introducing more people to this incredibly rich cuisine by staging a culinary experience in an intimate and cozy setting. All ingredients that go into my dishes are sourced locally where possible and each meal comes with a free glass of wine as a welcome.

Join me for a truly Ethiopian supper!

Ethiopia's coffee ceremony is an integral part of their social and cultural life. Don't be in a hurry though - this special ceremony can take a few hours. So sit back and enjoy because it is most definitely not instant.

I'd never had Ethiopian food, and really didn't know what to expect. But went along to a dinner hosted by Beti at her Cafe Art Nouveau venue.

As a slightly jaded Londoner it was really exciting to taste some new spices that I hadn't had before. I hadn't come across Berbere before, it had some familiar bits to it but in a combination I didn't know.

The flavours were rich and varied. It reminded me of Persian cuisine( or really nice Indian) in the way flavours come and go in waves with one mouthful. The Spinach with cottage cheese especially reminded me of North AFrica/Arabic food.


The Doha and Zighni are a bit more like West African curries and stews but without the searing heat. These were the dishes that had new flavours in for me and I can't recommend them enough.

Beti was a great host all evening and as a bonus made us some real coffee in the authentic Ethiopian way. Delicious and a lovely taste and smell experience to finish the evening.

Oh and the flatbread is worth going all on it's own!
