They are on a mission to get young people cooking at least five basic dishes from memory by the age of 25. Ben and Edwina are also going head-to-head to see who can get the most people cooking and mastering their signature lamb dish its Edwinas Curry vs. Bens Shepherds Pie!


Thankfully, shepherds pie is really simple to make and is full of fresh ingredients. It takes just 10 minutes to prepare and is always a winner with friends and family.
