Eat Pink.

Summary: BBC Good Food ME helped mark BurJuman's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign with a pink-themed Food club masterclass by Chef Marta Yanci.

A group of food club members gathered for a master class with chef Marta Yanci, at the Community Hall in BurJuman, as part of the October Safe & Sound Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. Chef Marta, founder of Marta's Kitchen culinary forum, a catering company and cooking school (www.martaskitchen. com), demonstrated a delicious pink- themed three course menu and got members to get cooking with her too.

Guests got to sample taster portions of the food she cooked up, and one lucky Food Club member also won a fabulous Kenwood KMix food processor in a raffle draw at the end of the night.
