Delina is a word from Tigrinya, an Ethiopian dialect. It means to 'want and desire.' Our desire is to share wonderful food and tastes with you.

Delina Kitchen began in July 2013, when Nazareth, our owner, started Delina Ethiopian Food as an Ethiopian street food stall in West London. We travelled around the local markets in Hammersmith, Fulham and Shepherd’s Bush with our Ethiopian recipes.

Since then, Delina has travelled nationally. Nazareth worked with large catering companies, offices and food markets around the UK to introduce the taste of Ethiopia. We now provide cooking classes for people interested in learning how to cook nutritious, tasty meals.

Nazareth grew up in East Africa, where everything she ate was full of flavour. African food preparation is time-consuming, however, and does not work well with a modern western lifestyle. Nazereth now lives in multicultural Shepherds Bush and has been re-inventing African food to inspire modern lifestyles.

Nazereth has a passion for simple food, healthy alternatives and delicious food to share. She also understands that after a long day, we just want to reach into the cupboard and grab something to feed the family. Her clever innovations make delicious food incredibly easy to prepare in next to no time!

Nazareth is a very enthusiastic teacher ! She made the whole evening extremely enjoyable and entertaining. The class was very planned, all ingredients and equipment were ready, and clearly laid out. We amateurs managed to successfully produce a delicious Ethiopian meal, that even looked like it should do . The class sat down together to eat the results, and it became a bit of a party !
Delina's Kitchen is a lovely spot, in he heart of the market. Very easy to get to. Highly recommended on all fronts. Just do it !

It was a fantastic class. Nazareth was a brilliant host and teacher from the moment I arrived with my boyfriend to the end of the class. The venue was lovely and welcoming, there was adequate equipment and the kitchen was cleverly used. It was good to learn about the different spices and Nazareth confidently answered any questions the group had; showing her incredible experience with Ethiopian food. The meal at the end was delicious. I heartily recommend this class. Thank you Nazareth for a great afternoon!

Great class, teacher, and location. Really great food and everyone had a great time. X

Shashi Abayasekera Sep 2023

The teacher was super friendly and talked us through all the spice blends and ingredients so we knew exactly what we were using. She was helping us all the way through but we still got our hands dirty and did most of the cooking ourselves.
The venue was so cute, really authentic looking. The kitchen was a little small but that added to the charm.
All utensils and ingredients were provided and neatly prepared for us before we began so it was super easy.
Overall I thought for what you get out of the experience and the food, the class was really reasonably priced.
And you got to eat together with all the pupils at the end of take your food away which was great.

Paul Joseph Jun 2023

Nazret is a joy to be with. She was very welcoming and made us feel at ease whilst making our food. The experience is one of kind and we got to make all 3 dishes and injera. Worth every penny if u love habesha food.

Lashaleah Nicely Jun 2023

Great cooking experience in a clean friendly environment. Our teacher was great and made the experience easy to follow.
The food tasted great after cooking it. I was so pleased.
I purchased some herbs and teff before leaving and started my injera as soon as I got home.
Highly recommended

Sara Lee Jun 2023

We had a brilliant couple of hours learning how to create some absolutely delicious food. It was interesting to understand the process of making injera and fun to then create our own. Flavours and spice combinations were explained which we then used in the dishes we made. Eating what we'd made at the end of the class was the perfect end to a great morning. Would massively recommend giving it a go!

Anjana Chakraborty Jun 2023

We had a great time at Nazareth's class! Loved Nazareth showing us the different spices used in Ethiopian cooking and seeing how the spices were used as she cooked the dishes. Then it was over to us whilst Nazareth was on hand to guide us through the different stages. We were inspired to start our own injera batter when we came home. We will be recreating the dishes from today to go along with our injera thank you Nazareth!

This was a really fun class! Nazareth was lovely and guided us through all the steps. I particularly enjoyed making the injera bread. After we'd all cooked our meals we sat down together to eat, accompanied by Ethiopian coffee or tea. It was all delicious and we will be trying out our new skills at home. Thank you!

Tanya Wickramage May 2023

This is a great, laid back and easy to follow cooking class. We learned how to make multiple vegetarian and meat dishes and the instructions were easily to follow. Would highly recommend for a couples date!

Michaela Urban May 2023

Nazareth gave a very informative and yummy class Sunday leaving all of us craving more Ethiopian! I highly recommend this class, other attendees went solo or with a friend/partner, it was such a fun atmosphere and a delicious meal.

Kaya Zacharska May 2023

Had a great time at the class today! Nazareth was so lovely and informative - taught us a lot about everything from spices to every aspect of making each dish and bread and gave us tips that you wouldn’t learn from an online recipe. Food was amazing and class small so she could distribute her time well between each person/couple. My partner and I are vegan so Nazareth helped us swap ingredients to make the already veggie dishes vegan. Definitely would recommend and actually come to the restaurant and cafe to have food there !

Hannah Humble Apr 2023

Great class, lovely teacher, yummy food! To improve, it would be good to receive a recipe sheet in the class which we could take home so we can repeat what we make at home. This would also make it easier to follow in the class.

Overall, I’ve gained lots of knowledge and skills and the class was fun!

Oliver Day Feb 2023

Nazareth was great - really authentic. Like being taught by one of your family. Her restaurant was a good size for our group of 7. We had all the right stuff we needed and she was flexible to give the veggies / vegans in our group a good variety of foods. We walked away feeling like we could make injera and some basic veggie stews - which is what we wanted. Really happy with the class - and the honey wine was a nice surprise. Thank you Nazareth!
