An evening of delicious food and relaxed conversation with BBC MasterChef Winners and cookery authors Shelina Permalloo and Jane Devonshire.

Shelina and Jane will both provide a cooking demonstration followed by an in-conversation style talk with presenter Rebecca Fletcher, exploring the inspiration behind their distinctive cuisines. Shelina brings the flavours of Mauritius all the way to her Lakaz Maman restaurant in Southampton, meanwhile, Jane continues to broaden the possibilities of gluten-free deliciousness!

The chefs will be around for book signing and conversation after the talk, and copies of Shelina and Jane's books will be available for purchase.

Shelina Permalloo was the winner of MasterChef in 2012. After winning MasterChef, Shelina worked on various TV projects such as Lorraine, This Morning, Sunday Brunch, The Food Network and then worked in various London-based restaurants. Shelina went on to open her first restaurant "Lakaz Maman" a Mauritian Street Kitchen in Southampton in April 2016.
