I’m Fabienne, and I have loved food, cooking and inventing recipes since I was a young girl.
I grew up in Paris, the youngest of seven children, with a Tunisian-born mother and an Italian father. Given my heritage it’s no surprise that my food is packed with Mediterranean flavours.
Now, with several years professional catering experience, I am lucky enough to work with food every day – catering for corporate and family functions, running workshops and cooking parties and privately teaching adults, teenagers and children to cook.
I write regular recipes for a National newspaper, and have published my first book Steamer The Cooking Wizard, a story cook book about healthy eating for children, their parents and carers, with six short stories and twelve delicious and healthy recipes. You can purchase the book here.
Whether you need a lamb tagine for 25, an oriental rice or an Adafina for 12, a French apple tart for 8, a cooking lesson for adults, for you or your soon-to-leave home teenager, or a cooking lesson or cooking party for children, I’m ready to spring in to action.
I am also well known to give more specific and personalised cooking lessons, either for a gluten free or dairy diet, a diet you have to follow during an illness (diabetes, ketogenic diet), vegetarian or fish based only diet, you can ask me any of your specific requirements, we will recreate together, respecting your tastes and allergies or dislikes, a range of menus and meals that you can share with your family and friends.
Cooking Lessons, adults, teenagers, children
I love to pass my passion for cooking to others through teaching.
I run regular cookery lessons, cooking courses and cooking demonstrations for adults, cooking workshops and cooking parties for children.
I have worked many years with JW3 – JCC London and have regular cooking classes held in their wonderful premises and demo kitchen in Central London.
Cooking demonstrations and cooking lessons are also organised in my home in East Finchley – Hampstead Garden Suburb only a few minutes from East Finchley tube station.
