Christmas in July

South Sydney Community Aid – Christmas in July 2015

We’re very proud to have been a part of South Sydney Community Aid’s Christmas in July celebration on 15 July. Bill Yan and all the crew at SSCA do a fantastic job support the communities of Redfern, Alexandria and the surrounding suburbs – bringing much happiness to all.

From Eat. Drink. Give., we’d like to recognise our Patron, Justice Michael Walton and thank our volunteers on the day, Judy Shade, Jayne Madden, Elizabeth Shaw, Will Lam, Sasha Connie Tong, Kang Ma, Bill (Santa) and David. You all did an amazing job preparing and serving the food to the 120+ attendees on the day – who, by all accounts, thoroughly loved it!



Cook Off 2015 – The Finalé

The Finalé of the EDG Cook Off for 2015 was nothing short of spectacular! Once again, we were back at Glebe Town Hall to test the culinary skills of our three finalists.

And our finalists certainly turned it on for the 30 guests who came along to enjoy six delicious courses throughout the afternoon. However, there could be only one winner on the day and San San Lim just nudged out Judy Leung and Shintaro Morimoto for the title of Cook Off Champion for 2015.

We’d also like to thank our contestants assisants on the day – Mrs Lim, Will Lam, and Carey Ho for their amazing efforts as well.

All proceeds from the Cook Off go towards our Food Without Prejudice Project, helping support those less fortunate in the community.

Our next project will be Christmas in July at South Sydney Community Aid on 15 July, where we’ll be putting on our usual Christmas lunch for the good folks of Refern and Alexandria. See you all then!



Cook Off 2015 – Round 1

Round 1 of the EDG Cook Off for 2015 saw a fantastic turnout at Glebe Town Hall – with everyone keen to try the amazing culinary creations of our contestants.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic selection of dishes that were served up but, unfortunately, only three contestants could proceed to the final.

Our three finalists were San San Lim & Doris Teoh, Judy Leung and Shintaro Morimoto. We’d also like to thank our other contestants Tammie Ma, Meillie Wong, Will Lam, Carey Ho and Sam for preparing all their wonderful dishes as well.

Onwards to the finalé!



Harris Community Centre Christmas Celebration 2014

Once again we found ourselves back at the Harris Community Centre for the annual Christmas celebration for the third year in a row. Everyone who came along thoroughly enjoyed the evening and got to enjoy some lovely food along with a few gifts from Santa.

Big thanks go out to our EDG volunteers who helped on the night and all those who have attended our events throughout the year that helped contribute in any way (big or small) to making this happen.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year one and all!
