African Leadership at Cookery School

Our event with the African Leadership Institute was a complete success with 26 potential leaders working as ‘team Africa’ at Cookery School all day to create feasts from north, south, east and west Africa.

BBC World Service Radio News sent reporter, William Edmondson, to Cookery School for BBC Newsday, which aired this week and is available on iPlayer as well as here. In the broadcast, William speaks to our principal, Rosalind, and two of the leaders about cooking and corruption – find out how they got on.

Here’s the menu of what our leaders prepared…
