One-of-a-kind dinners that were literally like no other.

To celebrate the awesomeness of cooking with what you've got, we teamed up with Sydney chefs to create exclusive community sourced dinners.

It was a delicious celebration of creativity - you'll never see your fridge contents, or dinner, the same way again. It’s also a rare glimpse into how chefs create awesome food with whatever ingredients are thrown at them - and how you can do the same at home with all those seemingly random ingredients that don’t quite fit into a bookmarked recipe. We call it boss cooking.

These events gave everyone a taster of a new approach to cooking. It's all part of Youth Food Movement Australia's Cookluck Club campaign, empowering you to get together with your mates and cook together, all with what needs using up in your fridge. Catch up while you cook up in a way that'll expand everyone's food horizons, and save food from going to waste while you do it.

Past: Community-Sourced Dinner at Tramsheds, Glebe (April 20th)

To celebrate the awesomeness of cooking with what you've got, Chefs from Tramsheds' Butcher and the Farmer, and Bekya, created an exclusive community sourced dinner. Attendees brought something that needed using from their fridge or pantry along with their ticket for an epic night, while enjoying sustainable sips from master mixologists Trolley'd.



Past: Cookluck Club does a rogue one (May 4th)

4Pines Brookvale and Youth Food Movement joined forces to save the Galaxy - and food from going to waste.

We rebelled against recipes and instead, we brewed a creative feast. Our ingredients were sourced from local food heroes like Berkelo Bakery, Manly Food Co-op, oFarm Organic Produce, and Balgowlah Community Garden. Cooking for us on the night was Chris Low (ex Orto Trading Co), who also shared his wisdom on the night too.

Attendees also walked home with goodie bags of excess ingredients to host their own epic cookluck.
