Meet chef Ruby Kughanathan, Papi’s Pickles

Ruby’s passion for cooking began at a young age when she would help her mother in the kitchen, first with breakfast before school and then moving on to assist with family dinners. She had to leave her hometown due to the conflict in Sri Lanka, with her family moving several times to avoid the war. In 2004 Ruby got married and came to the UK where she has settled and had a family of her own. Today Ruby works with Papi’s Pickles, the family-run and community-driven social enterprise that employs migrant women, catering for a wide variety of events around the capital. She credits Papi’s Pickles as life-changing, helping her not only find work, but build confidence and explore her interest in cooking.
