Top chef Silvia Nacamulli helped raise money for the British Emunah Food Fund by hosting a cookery session and book launch for supporters.

Silvia made a butternut squash risotto and baked a sefra (semolina, raisin and orange cake) with British Emunah supporter Regina Rubin lending a hand.

She also signed copies of her new book, Jewish Flavours of Italy, which provides a daily meal for at-risk and vulnerable children in Israel.

British Emunah’s Sharon Dewinter thanked Roxy Blumgart for hosting the event.

She said: “It was a lovely evening for a great cause. Emunah’s Food Fund provides meal for every child at our special schools and if necessary a food parcel to take home to their families.”
