Sierra Leonean Science Graduate Partners with London Restaurateur to Launch New African Supper Club
Growing up in Sierra Leone and emigrating to England in her youth, Sylvia Browne has always enjoyed the West African cuisine and culture of her homeland. Completing two science degrees gave her a deep insight into the importance of nutrition and healthy eating and she wanted to create a supper club to showcase her passion for African cuisine and healthy living. Long term Sylvia hopes to turn this venture into a profitable business with a wider reach across The UK.
East London based Sylvia’s vision is now coming to life as she becomes a food entrepreneur and businesswoman with this supper club partnership. In August 2017, Sylvia will be teaming up with Suzanne Tiega, Restaurant manager at Nando's and previously Garfunkel's, who is an expert in customer service and the restaurant business.
“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”, says Sylvia.
The vision of My African Hob is to provide excellence in African food. This means delicious, innovative and high quality food experiences for all diners. My African Hob will deliver consistently great personable service so that guests will value the supper club and recommend to friends.
