Yurii Kovryzhenko hopes Mriya, meaning ‘dream’, will serve as a showcase for Ukrainian arts and culture as well as its cuisine

A top Ukrainian chef is launching a “cultural embassy” for his home country in Britain to showcase its food, design, art and drink in the form of a new restaurant staffed entirely by refugees.

Yurii Kovryzhenko, a “culinary ambassador” for Ukraine, and his partner, Olga Tsybytovska, have been in London since February, when they were stranded during a 10-day trip from Kyiv for an event at the Ukrainian embassy after Russia’s invasion. They ended up staying in a flat in the embassy in Holland Park for two months.
