My Experience

Host an experience in your home

Free to Feed experiences are a unique way of celebrating your special event with friends and family within your own home.  Host a unique cooking experience, preparing authentic, traditional dishes from your chef’s home country before sitting down to enjoy a meal together. You’ll learn about your chef’s rich cultural heritage, personal journey, and the delicious selection of food.

THE DETAILS:

It is a 2 hour cooking experience followed by a generous meal, and the meal typically involves 6-8 dishes. We like to turn up 1 hour before the start time to unpack and setup.

You can host it in your home in the Melbourne metropolitan area, or we can travel outside this area for a little cost. Alternatively, we can hold it at the Free to Feed HQ in Thornbury.
