At Mainstreet, we all adore Olia Hercules and her cookbooks. Having had her visit us twice to share her cooking to now see how incredible she is while the conflict is ongoing in her home country, we admire her even more than we knew possible. Therefore, we could not resist making this Gift Box with her very popular cookbook ‘Summer Kitchens’ to welcome the warmer seasons.

About the book

Summer Kitchens by Olia Hercules 

This summer, here are the only recipes you need… What is a ‘summer kitchen’? In Ukraine, it means a small cooking space located in the veg garden, away from the main house. Calling on fond childhood memories and countless conversations and cooking sessions, Olia Hercules shows how you can truly make the most of summery ingredients to create new, inventive and utterly delicious plates of food.

Her recipes include Ukrainian favourites like: burnt aubergine butter on tomato toast, sourdough garlic buns, poppyseed cake with elderflower and strawberries. With each bite more delicious than the last. As you cook your way through generous salads, moreish mains and sweet delights, you’ll discover a way of cooking that is both traditional and contemporary, because these techniques and flavour combinations have been handed down through generations, yet reworked for every home kitchen. 

It’s a gorgeous way to discover sustainable, healthy and delicious food for the summer and beyond.


What else is in the box?

1 x bottle of FONTANA FORMIELLO Organic White Wine Vinegar (500ml)

1 x box of Blackthorn Scottish Sea Salt Flakes

A lot of Olia’s recipes call for good quality salt to season the food and the Mainstreet Deli stock some of the best. These Blackthorn Scottish Sea Salt Flakes are the perfect pairing with the book as a gift to get the recipient started and to help them gett the flavours just right.
