A new pop-up restaurant in Old Town will be serving up specially-made dishes for one night only.

The Patsora family settled in Swindon after fleeing the war in Ukraine and now want to bring the flavours of their homeland to an English audience.

Mum Iryna specialises in cakes and pastries while dad Viktor cooks up traditional dishes and bakes sourdough bread.

They have partnered with Pick Up Point on Devizes Road to launch a temporary pop-up restaurant offering a five courses that add a modern twist to authentic, traditional Ukrainian cuisine.

The event on October 23 will raise money for Swindon Welcomes Ukraine and Ukrainian aid charities.

Tickets are first-come first-serve and limited. To book, go to www.ukraineswindon.com/store/p/ticket-for-ukrainian-pop-up-restaurant-night

The success of the evening could lead to a more permanent family business being set up in the area.

Daughter Yulia added: “We aspire to open our own small bakery or cafe in the future, sharing the richness of Ukrainian cuisine with this welcoming town that has become our second home.

“If you join us for our Ukrainian evening, you'll be the first to try our food and support our family in starting our business.”

Tanya Tymofeienko, who is leading on the project said: “The food the family makes is delicious and will really showcase the best of Ukrainian dishes and tastes.

“We are really excited to be bringing this to Swindon”.

The night is focused on five courses of traditionally inspired food, soundtracked by live Ukrainian music, and accompanied by an auction of Ukrainian items.

The profit from the food and the auction funds will be split, with half going towards the work of Swindon Welcomes Ukraine and the other half to Ukrainian Aid Charities they support.

Chef John West is providing the venue, working with the family and donating his time and expertise to support the Patsoras in the first Ukrainian restaurant night.

He has been running his own restaurant in Swindon for the last two years, having worked in London and the Cotswolds for five star restaurants.

Kris Talikowski, vice-chair of Swindon Welcomes Ukraine added: “First we had UkraineFest, a one day festival celebrating Ukrainian culture, music and food in the Town Gardens.

“Now we are so excited to bring an authentic and frankly amazing menu of delicious Ukrainian food with UkraineFeast. I’ve tried the food and it’s incredible and I think Swindon is going to love it too."
