New Online Cookery Workshops

Dear friends,

I am going to continue teaching online as well as during one workshop at my house in June.

To book please contact me via this new email cookwith@oliahercules.com

We will then book you in, you will receive an event invitation – please do accept it. Payment information and shopping list and recipe pack will be sent as soon as the classes are fully booked.

JUNE 10th – 19:30-21:00 London time

You will need to make a pasta dough and at least one filling in advance. I will provide a ‘how-to’ video for those. Then I will teach how to fold rose dumplings, manti, khinkali, varenyky + a special bonus dumpling if we have time.
