Cook for Families in Need

Join MasterchefNZ finalist, Vanessa Baxter, and cook for families at Ronald McDonald House. This charity based format is perfect for companies looking to give back, but still have an exciting and enjoyable cooking event experience.

Vanessa Baxter was crazy enough to go on NZ MasterChef in 2013 where she placed a seriously impressive 4th place. She is a current familiar face on TV, a voice on radio, and an awarded cookbook author. Vanessa now runs her own social enterprise, The Fearless Kitchen, producing delicious platters to provide employment for women returning to the workplace while caring for their families.

Ronald McDonald House New Zealand supports families when their child is in a hospital away from home. In 2018 they provided over 4,300 families with accommodation and support free of charge to help relieve some of the everyday stresses they face.

Vanessa will guide you and your teams through the process of producing delicious, nutritious family friendly meals. These will be packaged and delivered to feed the families of unwell children at Ronald McDonald House. Your team will bond over this cooking challenge, while giving back to a very worthwhile charity. 

Every time this event is booked, we donate $1,000 to Ronald McDonald House on behalf of your company.

When the cooking is done, the food safely packaged, you and your team will sit down together to enjoy a meal together.

This event is suitable for groups of more than 20 people.
