Australia's top chefs are teaching cooking classes to raise money for domestic violence survivors

Learning cooking secrets from the likes of Danielle Alvarez (Fred's), Jock Zonfrillo (Orana), Mike McEnearney (No. 1 Bent St), and Mike Eggert and Jemma Whiteman (Good Luck Pinbone), will not only make you a better cook, but also a better person. These top Australian chefs will be leading two cooking classes – Alvarez and McEnearney or Eggert, Whiteman and Zonfrillo – in May at the Sydney Seafood School, and the proceeds will provide a domestic violence survivor access to a six-week cooking program run by Table, which is a registered not-for-profit organisation and collection of social outreach projects, with a social enterprise off-shoot you might already know: Two Good deliver one chef-designed lunch to you and one to a shelter for every order.

The Kitchen Table Cooking School began as a pilot cooking program inside a women's and girl's safe house in mid 2016, and is now being expanded to offer the six-week courses in 10 different safe houses and drop-in centres that work to support domestic violence survivors. 

For your $200 ticket to these one-off classes you get trade secrets from the best in the business, plus dinner, wine and recipe sets, plus you help empower a person putting their life back together after the trauma of family violence. If that's a bit of a financial stretch right now but you'd still like to help, there's also a crowdfunding effort so you can sling a few spare dollars towards a good cause.
