On my supper club
I went along to Arawelo Eats in May to record a radio piece for Deutsche Welle about Foz and her supper club. The food was wonderful, Foz and her husband Andy were brilliant hosts and the other guests were lovely to talk to. The evening was great. I would definitely go back, I had a fabulous time. Thank you!
I returned to Arawelo Eats for my second meal, and it was as excellent as the first. The food is fantastic. Its great being able to eat authentic African food in Bristol and Foz took the time to explain everything to us. Any awkwardness of going in to a stranger's home is completely brushed aside by the incredible welcome. Thank you for another fun-filled and delicious evening. We will be back.
Fabulous food - that whilst I'm even writing this review the memory of it makes my mouth water! Foz is a great host, explaining aspects of the various dishes; making you feel at home (in her lovely house) and providing an interesting, fun night. I highly recommend it.
From start to finish our evening was fantastic! Friendly welcome, delicious food and the perfect place to meet new people and learn new things.

they deserve. That’s just one of the reasons the Matatu Kitchen supper clubs are going down such a bloomin’
