House of Lewisham: Lewisham Cookbook

Regular price£20.00
Tax included. + Shipping. Free shipping on orders over £40.


Featuring mouthwatering illustrations from locally-based illustrator Nancy Ellis, the book  was written to coincide with what would have been Lewisham’s Borough of Culture year.  It features dishes chosen after speaking with local people about the meals they cook and their cultural significance.

They range from national dishes of Nigeria, to the meals cooked before the Jewish festival of Yom Kippur, recipes shared by our Romani community, and traditional British favourites such as chicken and leek pie.

These recipes can be served as feasts, as the centrepieces of a family meal - they are fundamentally sociable food. But even though some recipes may seem intricate or different, they are all achievable. Every single one has been tested and cooked in a home kitchen.

Dishes are split into chapters of meat, poultry, fish, vegetarian, vegan and sweets - with something for every season.

A proportion of each sale will be donated to the Lewisham Food Bank and the Refugee Cafe, who work with refugees to break down barriers and create opportunity, employability and community for those granted asylum in London.

We currently ship to the UK via Royal Mail 48 delivery.

We are hoping to expand our shipping options to include international customers very soon.
