Maria Bradford Kitchen

About Us

My name is Maria Bradford.

Welcome to my kitchen.

I was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone and am now living in Kent. I cook unapologetically authentic Sierra Leonean dishes, organize private dining events and much more.

My kitchen is all about the reinvention of traditional dishes, fused with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, taking inspiration from my Sierra Leonean heritage.

Sierra Leonean fusion-style cooking is the healthy, nutritious option. I tend to use locally sourced produce from suppliers in Kent and Freetown. I source from those who place emphasis on quality and uniqueness. The combination of exceptional ingredients along with my precise attention to detail ensures the best possible dining experience for you.

Whether its an intimate dinner for two, a dinner party for ten, or catering for a party for more than 150 people.

We will work together with you to craft the perfect menu that will take the stress away from organizing the special occasion in the UK or Sierra Leone.

We are happy to chat through your ideas and give you a quote at no charge.

““Maria did for our wedding, what color did for television; she brought it to life. She demonstrated excellent planning of our wedding day menu and decorations. She went out of her way to source fresh, good quality ingredients which were well prepared and presented with visual perfection. The only thing more incredible than the way she presented the food was the amazing taste, bursting with a variety of flavors and aromas. She took us and our guests on a culinary journey around the world; from hummus to halloumi, Aubergine to harissa lamb. Finally, she sealed our taste buds with homemade honey ice cream and a delicious wedding cake. Thank you Maria for making our wedding day unforgettable”. ”
