Enjoy a taste of Sierra Leone at My African Hob

TASTY: Jollof rice and plantain

GROWING-UP as a kid in Sierra Leone and after emigrating to England in her youth, Sylvia Browne had always enjoyed the west African cuisine and culture of her homeland.

Completing two science degrees gave her a deep insight into nutrition and healthy eating, which eventually led to her launching supper club My African Hob with restaurant professional Suzanne Tiega. Browne says that My African Hob emerged as a union of her passion for showcasing African cuisine and healthy living.

"Long-term, I hope to turn this venture into a profitable business, which can bring in a serious income", says Browne.


East London-based Sylvia is now morphing into an entrepreneur and businesswoman as her vision comes to life:

“I am thrilled that I can team-up with Suzanne Tiega (restaurant manager at Nando's and previously Garfunkel's) who is an expert in customer service. We promise a warm welcome, an evening of African celebration and full flavour from Sierra Leone.

PASSION: Sylvia Browne

“African dining is growing and gaining momentum every year. Now is the time to launch this supper club. There is a hunger for culture from the continent of my birth. I see this coming from the second, and third generation African and British foodies.

"I have been lucky to meet Suzanne who comes from Cameroon to help me launch the next event. She is a star at meeting and greeting front of house who will raise the bar in African customer service."


Browne continues:

"The vision of My African Hob is to provide excellence in our food. For us that means delicious, innovative and high quality. This is to be combined with great personable service that will make the guest feel good about the African experience. My African Hob wishes to deliver this consistently so our guests will value our service, and recommend to friends.

"Our next supper-club will take place in August, in Hammersmith, west London. It will serve banana fritters (akara), skewered roast beef and black-eyed bean stew.

"You can expect energy, sharing, passion and deliciously home-cooked food. We look forward to serving you."
