The Joined Up Food Book Club launches on July 31st at 6.30 at The Dry Goods Store, 10 Lauderdale Road, W9. VIP guests will be Miss South, author of Recipes from Brixton Village (kitchenpress) and Anne Fairbrother of Cornercopia, Brixton Village. They will explain to local enterprises how pioneering young companies like Cornercopia, with some helpful support from their Landlords, turned Brixton Village from a run-down has been into a thriving foodie destination hub. Miss South used her lively blog writing about the South London food scene to get her the publishing deal that tells the story of the innovative traders who have turned an area around.
Yasmin Patel of The Dry Goods Store W9, will demonstrate some recipes selected from Kitchen Press’ publications using spices and ingredients from her store.
JUF is a joint initiative between Paddington Development Trust, The City of Westminster and the Royal Bank of Scotland which supports women who want to start a food business in Central London to aid business growth and regeneration in areas of Central London. They want to nurture and initiate thriving food businesses in Central London with a view to turning more deprived parts of the City, such as Harrow Road and Church Street into thriving destination areas themselves. To that effect, a new food and crafts market has launched at Maida Hill (where Maida Vale meets Harrow Road) and a JUF strategic partner, Maida Hill Place has opened to offer venue space and a test kitchen in the area.
Yasmin Patel of the Dry Goods Store W9 is a typical example of women run businesses that are starting up. She gave up her accountancy work to set up her environmentally sound retail outlet a year ago and is now making a living from her passion.
Says Maria Stammers-Curran of Paddington Development Trust: “The JUF book club will inspire our new businesswomen and form a focus for inter-company networking.”
