Rochester Square

Tortellino Project old

Tortellino Project was Hosted by Nonna Collective in collaboration with On Purpose. They together with Rochester Square organised an evening of cooking and eating together in our Square, bringing back a sense of belonging and community through the most traditional activities, "cooking together".

 During one night people were able to learn how to make tortellini, while drinking wine and meeting other people. This happened around a communal table and people could make their own tortellini with the help of an authentic chef from Romagna (the land of tortellini) and two passionate Italian assistants.

 Products and wine were 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 Festival organise a series of dinners hosted across London. Each dinner 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.


The tree works and hedge trimming are now complete and thank you to the many of you who offered advice and feedback in the run up to this major piece of work.  We learned of a diversity of views around some particular trees and shrubs – which we did our best to resolve and accommodate -  and very much hope that people will be happy with the job overall, especially as the foliage begins to return in spring.
