The people of Ukraine are occupying our every thought, as we know they are yours too.
It’s been a week of reading, watching and supporting everything that Olia Hercules is doing, learning about how we can help from the UK, seeking out the facts. And, of course, speaking with our clients about their own plans to help raise vital funds.
Once again - as with Syria and Beirut and many other times before - it’s amazing to see the hospitality industry rally and come together, united in the same goal.
So, today's post is dedicated solely to those #CookForUkraine fundraising activities launched so brilliantly by Clerkenwell Boy. There will be plenty more to come, no doubt, but time is of the essence. Read on for all the details and how to support.
If and when you need something soothing to read, may we suggest Ella Risbridger’s brilliant blogpost Brownies: On Stuff.
Angela Hartnett has done it again and set the stage for six powerhouse chefs to raise money for Action Against Hunger, the DEC Ukraine Appeal and UNICEF’s Ukraine Appeal.
Tonight, Nieves Barragan, Lisa Allen, Tom Kerridge, Neil Borthwick, Ed Wilson and Angela will join forces and dish our a 5-course meal at Barboun in Shoreditch.
Over at Ottolenghi, every deli will be giving all proceeds from the sales of all cheesecakes (no matter what the flavour) to the Ukrainian Red Cross.
The Ukrainian Red Cross is distributing first aid food water and supplies to civilians as well as assisting with evacuations. Wrapped copies of Jerusalem and Simple with their yellow and blue spines respectively will be displayed as part of a discrete message of support for Ukraine.
On Sunday 13th March, Carousel will be handing over the kitchen to chef, Yurii Kovryzhenko, to host a Ukrainian sharing Sunday lunch feast and raffle to raise money for those impacted by the current crisis. Ambassador of Ukrainian cuisine, Yurii, reached out to Carousel to help raise funds with a showcase a traditional Ukrainian cuisine.
The one-off menu will feature Pickled vegetables and trout; Borsch soup with duck and prunes, the national culinary symbol of Ukraine; followed by Vareniki dumplings with potatoes and porcini mushrooms; and Ukrainian honey cake to finish. Drinks pairings will include traditional Hrenovuha (vodka, horseradish and lemon) as well as a specially created cocktail which is a delicious blend of uzvar and brandy.
Tickets available via the website, with all proceeds donated to the World Central Kitchen.
And finally... Dishpatch will be giving customers the chance to add a £1 donation at checkout, which Dishpatch will be matching to make it £2 per order for #CookForUkraine.
