‘Jara’ Private Dining Experience

Using both traditional and modern cooking methods, the 5 course tasting menu will take you on a journey filled with punch, spice, flavour and the colours and warmth of a Nigerian home

The 5 course meal is cooked in your kitchen. Each course is then served to you at your table with an accompanying story of the origin and inspiration behind the dish. Be it the familiarity of flavours, or the experience of new surprising textures, this menu is sure to provide many conversation starters.

‘Jara’ is a slang word derived from the Yoruba language of Nigeria. It means to add extra or give a freebie after something has already been bought or paid for. For example, when serving a dish at a restaurant, customers can usually be found asking for ‘jara’, at which point the seller might give something extra at his or her discretion.

The Jara Private Dining Experience includes:

  • 5 course meal – an introduction to Nigerian Food;
  • Complimentary Jara welcome cocktail;
  • Printed keepsake menus;
  • Table service; and
  • Immersive story behind the dish.

Complete the experience with specially curated add ons like, a specialist wine pairing by a qualified sommelier, live musician or a playlist to accompany your meal.

    A fabulous evening!

    Jacinta gave us the most fantastic evening meal for my daughters 30th birthday. She was so friendly from start to finish we really couldn't have asked for more. The service was great and the food delicious! Jacinta is a very knowledgable self taught cook who was happy to answer all our questions and really impressed our guests with all her dishes! We highly recommend the Beef Bourguignon - simply wonderful!
