This Masterclass is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best young chefs.
For this hands-on Masterclass, Maria will cook from her award winning book Full of Flavour and use her wealth of experience and travels to conjure up a feast of her favourite dishes, from Greek inspired carrot keftedes to Asian Red braised aubergines and mushrooms, Middle Eastern squash filo pies along with an Indian inspired soft meringue roulade with rhubarb and saffron cardamom yoghurt.
She has worked for some of the most illustrious chefs. Her progression through the culinary world began within the kitchens of Stephen Terry at Coast, Ferran Adria at El Bulli, and Juan-Marie Arzak in San Sebastian. These experiences proved invaluable for her first head chef position at Delfina in London, a position Maria held for nearly a decade before setting up The Whitechapel Gallery Dining Room, a role that garnered her rave reviews, 2AA rosettes, and a Michelin recommendation.
She has written cookbooks, Maria’s award winning second cookbook, Full of Flavour published in 2011 by Kyle Books, develops themes expounded in her bestselling debut title, The Modern Vegetarian, published in 2009, where she coaxes the reader to wake their palates with unique flavour combinations.
She regularly appears on TV including Saturday Kitchen, Market Kitchen and the recent series Perfect. Maria has also contributed to a wide variety of publications from the Guardian to BBC Good Food Magazine, and has been hailed by The Independent as one of 10 Female Chefs to watch.
