Chefs from popular Victorian eateries such as Cookie, Auction Rooms, Estelle Bistro, Charlie Dumpling, Cumulus Inc, Huxtable and more have teamed up to collectively provide their own recipes for a great cause with the new Forage cookbook.
Forage features recipes from many of your favourite Victorian chefs.
Forage is full of not just recipes but personal stories and gorgeous photographs from the chefs, the local producers and restaurants around the state.
Proceeds of Forage will benefit local charity Upside Nepal, creating and supporting agriculture enterprise in Nepal.
MasterChef season one contestant, Julia Jenkins and the instigator of the book, Calum Foulner, are pre-selling the book through a crowdfunding campaign on Pozible, to raise $25,000 to balance the print costs, shipping and warehousing of the book.
The recipes and pictures for the cookbook were sourced and photographed during a 3,000km road trip across Victoria to find some of the most diverse and exciting recipes and places.
The Pozible campaign is now live. You can pre-order copies of the book, purchase Christmas presents and even get the current Australian Young Chef of the Year, Jake Kellie, chef at Estelle Bistro, to cook an opulent meal in your very own home for you and five friends, plus receive six cookbooks.
