Katrina and Katya aka Rosehip + Rye began in 2012 with a (modest!) aim to revolutionise the image of Eastern-European food in the UK. From Estonia and Russia to Georgia and beyond, Rosehip + Rye bring the flavours of the ‘New East’ to London. Natural, home-cooked food, with elegance and exceptional provenance.
Having worked with the likes of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Royal Academy of Arts, Pushkin House and Watts gallery, Katrina and Katya are now catering for events, deliver parcels of food across London - and continue with pop-up experiences!
