Abbeyfield Park was a hive of activity on Saturday the 12th January as locals flocked to learn how to make the delicious central and eastern European dish: pierogi, courtesy of chef Ange Droz.

The event was for the People’s Kitchen Pitsmoor to raise awareness for the project and also to celebrate the rich cultural culinary diversity that Pitsmoor has in abundance.Each month a local resident shares a recipe that is special to them. It’s a great opportunity to sample and learn how to cook dishes from all over the world.

The free family event also welcomes local artists to share their craftpertise. January’s event hosted puppeteer Lois Conlan, who led a brilliant workshop on how to make your own shadow puppet. The event closed with a delightful shadow puppetry procession and bellies full of yummy pierogi.

On 16th February, we will be hosting a special Valentine’s treat of chocolate making and a chance to paint your own lovers cups.
