From 23rd February, you are invited to an evening of South African fine wining and dining with Denver Bennett. Originally from South Africa, Denver left a career in teaching to persue his lifelong love of food in 2012. His mother and his Aunt Kate were a big influence to his love of cooking: “My aunt was a self-taught caterer with a wealth of experience drawing from Jewish and Indian cultures and blending it into a style uniquely South African. Food in apartheid South Africa was soul food for the oppressed,” he explained.
Fans of Bennett’s food include Counciller John Muldoon: “Denver Bennett brings pop-up dining to Lewisham. If this dinner is anything like the excellent lunches he creates at the Talent Factory, this will be a great night out.”
Ackroyd Community Association in the Ackroyd Centre, London SE23 1DL is the venue – for more information see www.dbfoods.org.
