Mark Russ Federman, grandson of founder Joel Russ, took over the running of Russ & Daughters from his parents in 1978 and turned it over to the fourth generation, his daughter, Niki, and nephew Josh, in 2009. Mark and Russ & Daughters were most recently featured on the PBS documentary The Jews of New York

Anne Shooter has been a national newspaper journalist for 20 years and, having completed the Leiths Diploma in Food and Wine two years ago, now combines writing about food for the Daily Mail and Mail Online with running a small catering business. Her first cookery book is being published next year.

This event will have live sub-titling for deaf, deafened and hard of hearing visitors provided by STAGETEXT.
