She is a famous London chef, a recipe writer and food stylist. And she is Ukrainian.
Olia Hercules moved to the United Kingdom 13 years ago, and since that time she has been opening Ukrainian cuisine for the UK. Where tradition meets modernity: Olia Hercules presents Ukrainian food as a fusion of classic recipes skillfully interpreted on her own appealing way.
“We`ve caught on to Persian food, Southeast Asian food, superfood, classic British food. But Ukrainian food? Not a peep – until Olia came onto the scene” – that is how British journalists talk about it.
Olia says, that once her foreign friends came to Ukraine and tasted the local food that was different and delicious, she came up with an idea of sharing it beyond her country. She decided to tell the world about Ukrainian cuisine, and it was an absolutely right decision!
