Spirit of Colombia alive and well

    Sofia's Colombian Kitchen

    There was also festive success for more alternative food and drink experiences including Sofia’s Colombian Kitchen, which hosts monthly South American-themed dinner events.

    Since launching her home-based venture two years ago, entrepreneur Sofia Baguley, said there has been growing demand from those seeking an authentic dining experience that is out of the ordinary.

    Sofia, who took a number of bookings before Christmas for her monthly events, said: “I started out doing takeaways each Friday, which I did for a year, but decided to do dinner parties due to family commitments.

    “I normally do one event a month, but we had two before Christmas. I am able to cater for up to around 20 people and after the food there is salsa dancing as well, which makes it fun and something people really like. The food is quite normal, but it’s cooked with a lot of love and some lovely spices.”
