Olia Herkules, aka “Mamushka,” introduced a whole different Ukraine to the Brits, the land of sunflower fields, sun-drenched tomatoes, with an amazing mix of cultures and flavors thrown in. Originally from Kakhovka in the south of Ukraine, she came to the success of “Mamushka” through a culinary career, which included working in Ottolenghi restaurant kitchen and developing recipes for a variety of food magazines, including Sainsbury’s and Jamie’s. She appeared in cookery shows: Red, Hot and Yummy, Guardian Cook and picked as Obverver Rising Star of 2015.

In her talk Olia will share her thoughts on what makes her book stand out on a highly competitive market of British chefs and how her identity shines through her recipes.
