Taste of Africa

Primrose Hill African Evening – June 21 from 6 to 8:30 pm
Tann Rokka, 123 Regents Park Road London, NW1 8BE [map]

Tann Rokka is hosting a very special evening in Primrose Hill on Thursday, June 21 from 6 to 8:30 pm featuring various African themed charities and businesses as well as a new venture called HomeCookedUK which delivers locally home cooked food.

With the high street suffering so much, the use of shop space to help others start up new ventures without having to pay extortionate rents is an interesting concept and brings the community together.

Here is info about some of the organisations who will be represented:

  • Lisa Lee from tannrokka.com
  • Chole Lee from chloesespresso.com
  • Deborah Brown: I was born a block from Primrose Hill Park (at the old Avenue Clinic) and spent much of my 20s and 30s in Primrose Hill. We are showcasing Ghanaian baskets with a decidedly social mission of promoting women’s economic empowerment and African artisans, see mmaa.social
  • Hazel Aggrey-Orleans: Is another Camden resident left the city to follow her creativity and has a fabulous African print inspired fashion range:
  • Dr Jane Galton: who lives locally and co-chairs the Board of Trustees of the Cheetah Conservation Fund UK and will be there with her team to raise further awareness of this endangered species.

There will be jewellery from Nambia on sale to help raise funds.

We also have Dimitris and Anestis who have just launched a community spirited “dining experience” mobile app whereby they promote l

ocal people who love to cook to share their food with neighbours and facilitate local delivery. It is a great way to encourage people to start a little business in their spare time, inputting what they can when they can. See homecookeduk.com. They have onboard Alice Aggrey-Orleans, of Ghanaian origin who is a chef and passionate about promoting Ghanaian food and more. Jolloff rice and plantain will be there for all to try.

  • Heidi Kruitwagen and Anisha Rajapaksi both with their own careers are selflessly and passionately involved in the worthy charity Ka Tutandike in Tanzania. katutandike.org
  • Finally, Camfed – the Campaign for Female education – will also be joining and they work in the fields of girls’ education and young women’s economic empowerment camfed.org

This promises to be a really fun evening.
