Keshia Sakarah, the chef and founder of popular Caribbean restaurant Caribe’ in Brixton, will reprise her supper club dedicated to the culinary histories of the Caribbean at a new venue in east London. Baruru, named for the indigenous Kalinago word for plantain, will return on 8 June and 7 July, with tickets for each evening costing £65.

Newly hosted by doctoral researcher Renée Landell, this month’s menu at 83 Dalston Lane will cover the cuisines of Trinidad, Haiti, Guadeloupe, and Barbados, with dishes comprising dal; griot, pork shoulder marinated in citrus and the canonical Haitian spice blend, epis, before being braised and deep-fried; the Creole curry coloumbo, introduced to Guadeloupe by indentured Indian labourers; and a richy, sticky cassava pone with manioc ice cream.
