Chop Chat Chill meal kits from Chuku’s (from £25 for 2 people)
Celebrating Nigerian culture, the Chop Chat Chill meal kits from Nigerian tapas restaurant Chuku’s, provide a cultural experience which includes music, film and art along with their food and drinks.
The meal kit contains ingredients to make Nigerian-inspired wraps (House Wrapper) as well as other dishes and pre-batched cocktails. The name speaks to Nigerian tradition where a “wrapper” is a piece of fabric worn across the waist, commonly by women. The House Wrapper includes Chuku’s signature Jollof Quinoa, a choice of beef, chicken or tofu, Chuku’s House Salad and Chuku’s signature sauces, including the Ata Din (a spicy, tangy sauce made from fried scotch bonnet and sweet red peppers).
Chuku’s kits arrive chilled and are made to be finished-off at home with minimal preparation needed (under 10 minutes).
