Jeni England

Retreat Caterer

Self taught, Jeni began cooking at a young age through an interest in trying different flavours and experimenting with techniques in the kitchen. This progressed to hosting dinner parties for friends, where her passion for bringing people together with food started.

Cooking from the heart rather than using a fixed recipe plan, Jeni’s food is vibrant, packed full of flavour and always offers something new and exciting. However, the ingredients and recipes remain simple enough that she can write it down so that you can easily recreate it at home!
