About this event

Our new batch of talented Migrateful Chefs are graduating soon and they are now ready to hold practice cookery classes all throughout August!

This particular training class will be led by Chef Tamika from Jamaica at the Migrateful Cookery School in Clerkenwell, London.

This will be the first time she will teach the paying public a Family Style Cookery Class, a fun, laid-back homestyle cooking experience. Here, you will learn to prepare different dishes and then enjoy them with people who, like you, fuel our mission of supporting refugee and migrant chefs on their journey to integration. It’s a cookery class with a conscience, like they say!

In this class, you will be grouped with other participants and prepare dishes together as a team. Think of Chef Tamika as the head of the family! She will take care of dividing the class into groups, and each group will be responsible for creating one of the dishes. Of course, you are welcome and encouraged to move around during the class to learn about the other dishes being prepared. Throughout the evening, Chef Tamika will share stories about her food and culture, and explain how to prepare each of the dishes so you come away with some new cooking tricks and inspiration from Jamaica. You will also be emailed the recipes after the class.

Please note that these are training sessions where we will be testing the dishes, how the class runs and the quantities in the recipes. Think of it like a technical rehearsal at the theatre. This means it may run for longer than a normal class and involve some stop, starting. Our chef training team will also be present to monitor and observe along with volunteers who will help run the class.

At the end of the class, we will ask the participants for feedback, which will be valuable for our chef-in-training’s learning and development especially when they start teaching normal classes.

Tamika is part of our new chef cohort and she is currently working with our Chef Development Team to finalise her recipes she will be teaching in her classes. We have provided a sample of dishes which may be included in this class but will confirm closer to the time of the class, including allergen information. If you have specific dietary requirements, please wait until the allergen information has been released to book into this class.

A message from our Chef Tamika:

"My name is Tamika Jones. I am from Kingston, Jamaica. Food in Jamaica is influenced by all the different nationalities that settled there - Irish, British, French, Asian, Spanish, American and African. Everyone wants to live in Jamaica because it is such a beautiful island! A lot of our ingredients come from other parts of the world.

I developed a passion for cooking, watching and helping my grandmother from the age of 8 years old. She was a great cook and baker. On Sundays, she would gather all of us, her granddaughters, to eat together. Rice and peas are one of our special Sunday meals. Our home was always full of people. Even though we were poor, my grandmother was always feeding everyone. There were always people coming over to our house for my grandmother’s food. I remember the day she let me cook was one of the best days of my life. It really boosted my confidence, like I can do anything! Before leaving Jamaica, I used to cook from home and sell the food for a living. My food was very popular and I really enjoyed doing it.

When I moved to the UK, I worked in a Caribbean restaurant for many years. My coleslaw was famous at the restaurant! One day I would love to own my own Jerk centre and franchise it - like Nando’s.

Now, I live in London and I am looking forward to teaching you how to cook Jamaican food."
