Jenny and Reza will be teaching six amateur chefs to create a delicious feast.

Along the way passing on inspired hints, tips and techniques on how to cook like a professional, their aim is to demonstrate that with a little know how, all of us can produce delicious food.

From the beautiful basics, to wonderful Mediterranean and Asian inspired dishes, all will be served up with Jenny and Reza’s unique humour and sheer joy of cooking at their Fabulous Food Academy.
