Nudo & Roelof le Roux joins The Czars Banquet

Nudo joined The Czars Banquet Russian fusion dinner party in London for their Italian Mafioso special evening.

I hosted a little olive oil tasting, teaching the diverse group of international guests about judging a good olive oil by smell, colour and taste. Founders Helen Osborne and Olga Tarabashkina also used some Nudo products in their food presentation and gave away some Nudo goodies for guests to take home at the end of the evening.

All in all it was a delightful event turning my favourite Russian underground restaurant into a festive Italian affair with the globe-trotting group of foodies joining in with the fun spirit of the evening.
