We are proud to lend our support to the #CookforUkraine campaign. This fundraising initiative was launched by food writers and campaigners Alissa Timoshkina and Olia Hercules immediately after the invasion of Ukraine to raise the funds needed to support children and families that have been displaced by the current situation.

It is a great pleasure for us to welcome Alissa and Olia to store to talk about the wonderful food of Ukraine and Eastern Europe, to encourage us to cook our own iterations of traditional dishes and to celebrate a wonderful culture. All proceeds from ticket and book sales will be donated to Unicef for their work in Ukraine. You can find out more about #CookforUkraine here:

Olia Hercules is the author of Mamushka; an award-winning cookbook which celebrates her family recipes, the success of which was followed up by Summer Kitchens: Recipes and Reminiscences From Every Corner of Ukraine. Featuring gorgeous photography and delicious recipes, these are vibrant and joyful cookbooks to be treasured.

Alissa Timoshkina is the author of Salt & Time; a poetic and culinary journey through the food of the former Soviet Union, with a focus on the dishes of Siberia. An evocative collection of recipes and stories, this is a book that strongly evokes a place and a cuisine.

Olia and Alissa will be joined by food writer and critic Caroline Eden, whose books Red Sands, Black Sea and Samarkand blend travel narrative with recipes.



Tickets are £20 including a glass of wine or soft drink.
All ticket sales and profit from book sales will be donated to Unicef for their work in Ukraine.
