Borough Cooks Live follows the successful move of many of Borough Market’s events to digital platforms due to Covid-19 restrictions. The first of the series took place on Thursday 15th October with Yotam Ottolenghi.

Kate Howell, Development Director, Borough Market said: “It was great to see so many faces at our first Borough Cooks Live event in October. Knowing people are getting involved at home only encourages us to continue offering more events and while Covid-19 restrictions stay in place, we hope to continue to build an online community through these digital occasions. And of course, those taking part can bring a touch of Borough Market to their homes by buying ingredients from our expert traders, who are always happy to help customers source the best produce.”
