Fish no Chips

15 May 2018

Britain isn’t known internationally as a place of culinary legend, but Terry Pickard likes to challenge perceptions. This meeting of his TUCC at Va Bene restaurant on 18 April aimed to provide connoisseurs with proof positive that gourmet food can be based in British staples. A stilton soup was served, accompanied by an explanation of the history of this English cheese. The star dish at the centre of the meal was planned to be fish and chips with mushy peas. However, chef decided to think of our beach bodies and served the (excellent!) fish with a salad instead. British cuisine reinvented!

On August 30, a presentation of the Association of Mentoring for Children and Youth – a group created for the systematic support of children in boarding schools and those who have faced difficult living conditions, was held in Vatra restaurant.

Mentorship offers a great opportunity to connect with children who are away from their homes to let them know that they are not alone and they have support on the outside. The organisers themselves are no less impressive: leading Ukrainian and international experts – Kidsave (USA), One Hope (UA), My Home (UA), along with Mykola Kuleba, ombudsman of the President of Ukraine for Children.

Together we can help to reform the system and find permanent families for orphans and life-long mentors for at-risk children and youth.
