No Ordinary Fundraiser
text by elizabeth bentley
It just warms our cockles when the big end of town rolls up their sleeves and decides to do something for the community. In this case, it’s some of Australia’s most celebrated chefs, whose fine restaurants are located along Darlinghurst’s vibrant Crown Street. They have contributed recipes to a beautifully photographed cookbook to raise money for the local Crown Street Public School, which was first established in 1849.
Beyond the 200 mouthwatering recipes, there’s another agenda – encouraging a love of fresh, sustainable eating in youngsters. Who could argue with that?
Just A$29.95, we think it’s going to find its way under more than a few Christmas trees this year. And to share the joy just a little more, $1 from each sale will be donated by the school to the Salvation Army’s Oasis Youth Support Program, another Crown St fixture.
