About Maria

My name is Maria Bradford.  I was born and raised in Freetown, Sierra Leone. I currently live in Kent, England with my husband, and two children.

I cook unapologetically authentic Sierra Leonean dishes, organise private dining events, teach Sierra Leonean cooking, and much more throughout United Kingdom and West Africa.

My kitchen is all about the reinvention of traditional dishes, fused with fresh and sustainable ingredients, taking inspiration from my Sierra Leonean heritage.

Sierra Leonean fusion-style cooking is a healthy, nutritious option. I tend to use locally sourced produce from suppliers who place emphasis on quality and uniqueness.

These tasty ingredients, along with my precise attention to detail, will ensure the best possible dining experience for you.

Whether it’s an intimate table for two, a dinner party for 10, or catering for a party for more than 150 people, you will get the same service every time. I can provide the meal ready to eat for you to enjoy, or bring the ingredients, cooking utensils, and crockery to your home or venue. We cook, clean and tidy the kitchen afterwards. You won’t have to do anything but relax and enjoy a wonderful afternoon or evening.

We will work together with you to craft the perfect menu that will take the stress and hassle away from organising the special occasion. We are happy to chat through your ideas and give you a quote at no charge.
