Shwen Shwen is the world’s leading  Sierra Leonean inspired, Afro-fusion fine dining experience.

Private dining.
Individual and tailored

It’s rare to get family and friends together in one place. Don’t you think? So when a special occasion arises, look to Shwen Shwen to help you get the dining experience just right. We will put the Sierra Leonean party spirit at the heart of your home or chosen venue. Your menu will be original and tailored. Ingredients will be organic and freshly sourced. Traditional African recipes will be infused with a signature Maria Bradford twist. Everything will be coordinated, delivered and hosted as you wish. Perfectly.

“Food and friends; there is no better combination.” Maria

We will bring with us:

  • Elegant colour themed table dressings with contemporary crockery, cutlery and glassware
  • Seasonal menus with locally sourced ingredients
  • Your choice of menu – sharing, tasting or set course dining
  • A team of experienced waiting and bar staff, maître d’s, butlers and sommeliers.

Let the party begin!

Unique and personal

We would be honoured to give your special day the culinary experience of a lifetime. Part of the success of making your wedding unique lies in getting to know you first. (And Maria is extremely good at that!) Our reimagining of traditional African food infused with local, organic ingredients will feature of course. But we make sure there’s harmony between what’s on the plate and its surroundings. Our special touches – the atmosphere, the music, the lighting, the decoration…will be everywhere.

“It’s a wonderful privilege to help you plan your big day.” Maria

Our team of experts can cater for weddings in West Africa, Europe, United States and Canada. Whether you’re planning something traditional, seeking the most exotic location, serving our signature six course taster menu (it’s a must!), there’s one thing for sure. We will be throwing our heart and soul into making your day one every guest will remember.

Corporate Dining.
Fun and Inspiring

It’s so important to get together as a team. Away from the office and in a less corporate setting, you can really focus on what matters. Making everyone feel at ease is a great skill and at Shwen Shwen Maria has a natural talent for it. Food is expressive so if you’re looking to communicate your company vision, our particular forte is capturing the personality of your business within a bespoke, creative menu.

“Sharing good food is my favourite thing, nothing is more blissful.” – Maria

We take the view that corporate dining doesn’t have to be corporate. We will create an authentic African cuisine experience infused with Maria’s creativity and love of fresh, vibrant, exotic ingredients. You can break the ice with canapes, mingle with colleagues over our tasting menu, we will create the environment that lets the conversations flow.
