It would have happened earlier, if it won’t for covid, but here we are now and very excited to have you join us! We will cook & bake Italian style together, with a glass of vino by our side at the wonderful home of vintage collector, artist & airbnb owner, Georgie Stuart in Edith, Blue Mountains.

Being early September, there will be a crossover of late winter and early spring produce. Georgie tells me she should have rhubarb, cavolo nero, Jerusalem Artichoke, radish, and wild spring leaves in her patch, whilst mine will include beetroot, peas, silverbeet, fennel and possibly broad beans (I planted these guys late this year, so maybe not!). Between us both, plus the help of farmers market, we will have a bountiful selection to create a feast! I can’t wait! We will endeavour to eat on a long table outside, weather permitting of course, however there is a plan B – a lovely table indoors by the fire! Perfetto!

FUNDRAISING EVENT: Cook for Ukraine – Sunday, 24 April 2022

Sunday, 24 April 2022
10am till 2pm

Please join me as I stand with our Ukraine brothers and sisters, to cook for them, their country, they’re freedom! The senseless war by Russia on Ukraine has left many Ukrainians homeless – mothers with their young children fleeing Ukraine to find safety in boarding countries. These children’s fathers left behind to fight for their country, their home! I can’t even imagine the trauma these people are facing on a daily basis is irrefutable!

Therefore, I will hold a ‘Cook for Ukraine’ fundraising workshop at The Village Cooks to raise much needed funds for Unicef Australia who is providing life saving supplies to the children and mothers displaced in Ukraine!

100% of each ticket sold will be donated to Unicef Australia. Price per ticket is $200.

We will cook and bake a 3 course Ukrainian lunch – recipes I will pick from Olia Hercules’s (Ukrainian born, residing in London food writer, chef, author) cookbooks – Mamushka, Kaukasis and Summer Kitchens.

Hope you can join me.
