So when I was asked to join a cookery class at Mamma Anna’s in West Kensington I of course said yes, ready to learn new recipes, ready to become the next Nigella. Just down from West Kensington station, Mamma Anna’s is a wonderful little deli which also offers private dining, cooking classes and soon takeaway coffee. Run by Anna and her children Fabrizio […]
