Eating together, making food together and sharing ideas is a focus here at Rochester Square.

The overall aim of these dinners and workshops are to encourage unexpected social encounters respecting the sharing atmosphere of the space and empower people to share their skills with others. 

The guests will become part of a community made up by local and international people that share the same passion for food and condividuality.


Almost every first Saturday evening of every month


We are delighted to introduce shared communal dinners where a volunteer offers to cook a meal for those interested in the future of Rochester Square. This is usually a soup or stew in a very large pot. We can host a maximum of 40 people so please do let us  know if you are coming.

We will share food, stories and ideas for collaboration. 

We suggest that after 3 times as a diner, you are then the cook .

We try to meet almost every first Saturday evening of every month 19:30 however we apologies when this is not possible (always check in advance in case of cancellation pls)
RSVP essential at

We welcome a 5£ donation to cover cost of ingredients.

 Bringing back a sense of belonging and community through the most traditional activities, "cooking together".

Nonna Collective, in collaboration with On Purpose & Rochester Square, is pleased to invite you to take part of an evening of cooking and eating together on Friday 8th of September at Rochester Square.

Imagine you had an ITALIAN GRANDMOTHER in town and that you could spend a fun night in her kitchen learning how to make TORTELLINI, drinking wine, and getting to know other people. This will happen around a communal table and YOU'LL BE MAKING your OWN TORTELLINI with the help of an authentic chef from Romagna (the land of tortellini) and two passionate Italian assistants.

Price £20 will include the workshop, dinner and drinks.

--> Products and wine will be sourced from small producers in Italy to support the great effort of delivering high quality products, of having sustainable values at heart, and keeping traditions alive!

On Purpose Feastival will be organizing a festival on September 8 in which a series of dinners will be hosted across London. Each dinner will invite you to join a conversation about a specific social issue and explore a different way to eat responsibly. From handmade street food to an organic singles night, there’s something for everyone.
