Join Gonul Daniels for the book launch of

The Turkish Kitchen

6pm till 9pm

Sunday 27th November

Starfish & Coffee

92 Aldermans Hill

N13 4PP

This is Gonul’s first cookery book and comes from a desire to keep her mother’s fantastic Turkish based cooking alive.  Like her mother she cooks daily and her kitchen is a working kitchen.


Gonul says “Food has always been the main focus of our family life. Our family of eight would sit around the kitchen table every evening at 7 o’clock to eat dinner together. It was an unwritten rule that we were all in by 7 o’clock and there was no going out until the meal was over. We would have to leave friends homes early to be back in time for dinner. We didn’t mind because they were the rules. My mum put a hot meal on the table everyday without fail. Most times we loved it but even if we didn’t we still sat, ate and talked about the day.”



A reminder to come along to our meeting when Sheila Barford will be talking about the Forty Hall Vineyard. It is the only vineyard in London that produces its own organic, English, sparkling wine and has recently won an award.

In the second part of the meeting we can confirm that David Burrowes, MP, will be coming to talk about the proposed Boundary Commission changes to constituencies. Under these proposals the Enfield Southgate constituency will no longer exist but be split up among five different constituencies. Do come along and find out what these changes will mean for you and who to contact if you want your views heard.
