Det skal I lave

You will learn how to make a traditional Nigerian dish, or learn a modern take on a traditional dish through a step by step cooking class, using some indigenous ingredients flown in from Nigeria. At the same time I will teach you the historical and cultural significance of the dish while some rhythmical Afrobeats music plays in the background. By the time you are done, you will have sufficient knowledge of Naija Style Dinner Parties 101. Some dishes we may cook include Naija style Butter and vodka crust meat pies, Chin chin, Fried Plantains, Jollof Rice and Suya Chicken! This experience is great for groups, teams, families and as a corporate team building exercise!

I am Head Chef and Owner of Eko Kitchen San Francisco, the city's first and only Nigerian restaurant. I quit my day job as a Financial Analyst to open this restaurant earlier this year. I have hosted numerous pop up dinners and cooking classes and have been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, Eater SF and Bon Apetit for my unique take on traditional Nigerian food. I derive joy from sharing Nigerian food, music and culture with people from all around the world and have been great at it so far.

Had the best time! Simi was an incredible host, so kind and thoughtful. I felt inspired throughout the whole experience. And the food was INCREDIBLE.

Great experience! We shared our time with one other couple and it was a great, interactive, informative experience- oh and the food was awesome as well! The host is super nice and passionate and walked us through the dishes while giving some background and cultural context. Would recommend!

Great experience, felt intimate and personal. Since we had our own section of the restaurant it felt like a private dinner. The food was super tasty and I can’t wait to dig into my leftovers later. A memorable date night for my husband and I.

Simi was great! All of the food was delicious and we had a lot of fun making the puff puffs. Simi shared many experiences about herself and what led her to teaching classes/SF and gave us specific insight into the little bites of information that it seems one only gets through the experience of having a Nigerian family/childhood. I’d recommend this to anyone looking to have some fun and a more personalized experience trying their hand at a Nigerian dish. We got to eat it in the restaurant after and take it all to go too.

This was an interesting experience where we got to learn about Nigeria and got to know Simileoluwa as she shared a bit about her story on how/why she moved to the US and on how she got started in her cooking career. The 3 things that we prepared were pretty simple - "puff puff" doughnut holes as dessert, "egusi" soup with chicken as the main dish, and "fufu" a cassava dough as a side dish. Even though we added a lot of spices to the chicken, it surprisingly tasted bland that was lacking in flavor. The chicken either needed to marinate longer or we needed to add more salt/pepper. She also had a lovely hibiscus drink prepared for us (with no added sugar, thank you!), which was very healthy and refreshing. Nevertheless, it was an interesting experience to try an African cuisine beyond the popular Ethiopian which I really enjoy. As a note, the class did not start until 6:20 as she was running the late from the previous 4pm group. As such, it was closer to 9pm when we were done eating but you are free to leave whenever you want. Plan accordingly if you are pressed for time.

I first discovered Eko kitchen because it’s near my house, and the food is excellent. I also happened to read online about Simileoluwa, and how resilient she is as a business owner, not letting a five-alarm fire (that destroyed everything a year after opening) shutter her restaurant dreams. Learning about Nigerian food and culture directly from someone like her is totally what Airbnb experiences is about! Unique experiences that you can’t get anywhere else!
