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, North African and Middle Eastern 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 cooking workshops, cooking lessons 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.

To get a taste of where it all began, please listen to the Jewish Views Podcast  (24.45-34 minutes).

Please also visit and like my Facebook page and follow my Instagram page to find out about my latest news.

You can also listen to the Guardian podcast where I cooked for Giles Coren & Claudia Roden, or read my Jewish Chronicle recipes.

If you have any questions, or are ready to order or book a cooking lesson or a cooking party, please contact me on 07973 698046 or info@homecookingbyfabienne.co.uk.

Bon appétit,
