Jess & Jo Edun, The Flygerians, followed by book signing

Where:

Outer Bailey Demonstration Stage - Outer Bailey

When:

Meet two inseparable sisters, Jess and Jo Edun, who are bringing the sweet taste of Nigeria to the UK food scene. Inspired by their Grandma’s joyful cooking, they are keeping her legacy alive in their restaurant and pop-up residencies. Local heroes themselves, these Peckham-based siblings are striving to make a positive impact through food and the social connections it can create.
Their first book out now, delivers recipes for home-cooked dishes for anyone who loves to eat and wants to experience the uniquely delicious tastes and textures that West African food brings to the table.

Jess and Jo Edun started their food careers with a residency in a pub whilst catering corporate lunches to clients. Five years on in 2022, they opened The Flygerians restaurant in Peckham Palms, a black female-led space supporting start-up businesses. They made it into Vogue in a round-up of ‘the best black-owned restaurants in London’ and have since attracted plenty of media attention and made several TV appearances.
