A Culinary Journey with Olia Hercules

Gift this course

Discover how to recreate the fascinating flavours of eastern Europe and beyond on this one-day cooking adventure, led by renowned chef and food writer Olia Hercules.

Originally from the Ukraine, Olia honed her creative cookery skills at Leiths, trained with Yotam Ottolenghi and is the author of highly-acclaimed cookbook Mamushka: Recipes from Ukraine and beyond. During the day, she will share both her expertise and her food philosophy, introducing you to new flavours and showing you how to get the most out of fresh produce.

This course will teach you how to create a range of delicious dishes, including:

  • Duck and sorrel broth with quail's eggs
  • Fragrant herb-stuffed Moldovan flatbreads
  • Georgian herby spring lamb (chakapuli) with new season Jersey Royals, brown shrimp and samphire salad.

You’ll be able to eat and enjoy each of the dishes you make, either at the School or at home afterwards. Refreshments will be available throughout the day, as well as a buffet style lunch prepared by our team of chefs. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.

Take a look at Olia's cookbook Mamushka: Recipes from Ukraine & beyond.
