Help buy foster kids Christmas presents by eating dessert

Written by

We've been sold countless 'guilt free' desserts, but this festive season a bunch of Sydney restaurants are doing a sweet treat that's shameless for a non-calorific reason. The Sweet Treat Project will see Rockpool Dining Group donate $1 from every dessert they sell from today right up until Boxing Day. The funds will be used to purchase personalised gifts for children in foster care. That means you could order up Flavours of Phil’s vacherin (a fortress of meringue discs with lime granita, a pandan mousse and sorbet, and toasted coconut) at Jade Temple; a fluffy passionfruit pavlova from Rockpool Bar and Grill; a rich slice of banoffee pie from Fratelli Fresh; or even a swirl of Burger Project’s soft serve – and each of these will translate into special gifts for disadvantaged kids. Basically, you get to be santa by eating dessert.

Other restaurants participating include Rosetta Ristorante, Spice Temple, Ananas, Munich Brauhaus, Bavarian Bier Café, Saké Jr and Fratelli Famous. Every dessert on every menu is included in the Sweet Treat Project. It's also worth noting that each of these gift will be tailored, with the Rockpool Foundation working with foster care agencies to cater to each child’s different circumstances, meaning they could get anything from dance lessons to musical instruments.

The Sweet Treat Project runs from Wed 15 Nov until Tue 26 Dec.
