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.



If you have been doing a class or using the space for any reason, or would like to make one,  you are invited to kindly support Sam Belinfante’s project by making a contribution to his Wood fire oven.

Collaboration is the key for a creative community and we are starting to launch this idea with some projects in the square on Saturday 24 June, (save the date) where different ideas will bring people together in this unique space.

Sam and others volunteers will bring their baking ideas and bake them on the day to enjoy together! If you would like to contribute please make a flat image of your idea of baking - cut it to the actual shape (doesn’t have to be square and can be any size). We will fire and glaze it for you and it will then be applied on the hood of the oven with all the others.

Have fun and thank you !
