Persepolis Anniversaries

‘Persepolis is 20 at the end of this year,’ writes Sally Butcher. ‘Twenty years of purveying the Pick of Persia to Peckham. When we first started, people clearly thought we were crazy, but all those years later Peckham is the cultural hub of South East London and Middle Eastern food is all the rage. In addition to this we are very proud that Prospect Books have brought out a new edition of my first book, Persia in Peckham (same book, new cover), as indeed have Pavilion with Veggiestan, my second book - the latter has been brought out as a special 10th anniversary edition, again with a shiny new cover. There will be a glass of Prosecco on the house for any Guild members popping in for lunch or dinner during December.’
