Bear Cottage Christmas Party 2012

Bear Cottage is a children’s hospice that helps families cope with the impossible – to care for a child who has a life-limiting illness. For these children there are no happy endings, and no miracle cure. Yet they play, laugh, and live life to the fullest. Together with Tsuru Food Truck and Cantina Mobil, we were so proud to give to such a great cause!

The Art of Taste 2

On Thursday November 1, The Art of Taste 2 brought us back to the 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art for an experiment in science, art and food. Over 100 guests experienced some amazing pieces of artwork by Ken + Julia Yonetani in their exhibition ‘What the Birds Knew’ – along with some beautiful food.

The event catering for the night was done Umi Kaiten-Zushi, who provided some inspired Japanese cuisine, along with our EDG volunteers – who came up with a few creations of their own. The night was all topped off with a demonstration by N2 Extreme Gelato who showed us how they make their fresh, tasty gelato with liquid nitrogen.

The night was a great success, with over $2,000 raised for our Food Without Prejudice Project.
