Our next two Peace of Cake events. In the morning hosted by Janet Daby – Meet your MP event, and in the after noon at Homestart Croydon – see you there with cake!
Our next Peace of Cake will be at Age Exchange Hall in Blackheath on Saturday 8th June 2019 from 10am till 12pm – as part of Janet Daby’s Meet the MP but also a chance to connect through cake and conversation. With so much going on in UK politics we MUST keep talking no matter what party we vote for or not – it is time to unite and we can only do this by talking to each other and making our views heard to those who represent us – see you there!
Our next Peace of Cake event is to ‘sew seeds for peace at the launch of the Unity Garden hosted by Claire MacDonald as part of her welcoming Service – bring cake to share. Tea and coffee always so nice at Unitarian Friends Meeting House

Looking forward to sharing cake with you all on Saturday 5th January from 12 till 2pm in Catford.
Hope you have a great Holiday – so many people are doing great things in the name of Christmas this year, hoping this momentum of good will form the snowball that is needed for more peace in the world.
Please share, spread the word and see you for our very first Peace of Cake in 2019!!
Bake and bring cake to share the story or sentimental value behind your bake. Write a short paragraph about why the recipe is so important to you.
It could be as simple as ‘This lemon drizzle cake was my Grandmother’s recipe and I think of her every time I bake it’ or it could be ‘as a refugee we could not find orange flower water for my biscuits but we found rosewater and adapted the recipe – I want to pass this new recipe through the generations so that they can remember how life changed for us’.
This will then be part of a publication highlighting the significance of food and the importance it has over time and in connecting communities through merely sharing and appreciating.
Peace of Cake is partnering with Goldsmith’s University as part of the Mayor of London’s ‘Arrival’ work, ‘Celebrating Windrush and the Communities who followed’.Share the flavours of ‘home’ and the memories they bring to life.
Join Goldsmiths researchers and community groups for a bake sale with a difference. Taste bakes from Lewisham’s diverse communities, explore the hidden histories behind iconic recipes and share the memories they evoke.
Designer, lecturer and avid baker Rose Sinclair, will kick off proceedings by discussing how she uses Caribbean cakes to spark conversations in her Caribbean front room textile installations.
Next, Sociologist Dr Alex Rhys-Taylor will give a short talk on food and multicultural London, using the mango to explore how our senses help us navigate and carve out a sense of belonging in the city.
Cakes are free, but with a suggested donation of £1 to support the Lewisham Refugee and Migrant Network and local causes. All donations will receive a booklet bringing together the featured recipes and the stories behind them.
Alongside delicious bakes from around the world, people of all ages and backgrounds are invited to share their audio stories of arrival in London with The Conversation Booth – A mobile recording facility encouraging conversation, listening and archiving. Designed by Goldsmiths MA student, Nicole Robson, it’s part of the Mayor of London’s ‘Arrival’ work, ‘Celebrating Windrush and the Communities who followed’.
We are also partnering with local organisation Peace of Cake, ‘Connecting Communities through Cake and Conversation’ Find out more about their work: http://www.peaceofcaketogether.org/

As Asma wrote on her page “Very lovely here at Peace of Cake this afternoon. In the spirit of inter generational celebrations I had some wonderful words of wisdom from Aileen Juliette Grassby-Lewis’ mum. She has had an amazing life as an opera singer and is such a doer. Her words of wisdom were ‘Never feel sorry for yourself’ . Her positivity shines through. I also met these lovely women from the Lighthouse project in Woolwich @phoenixtogether”
