THE CUT goes beyond a culinary competition; it’s a gathering of like-minded individuals passionate about food. A percentage of ticket sales will be contributed to Two Good Co., a socially conscious enterprise dedicated to supporting and empowering women with lived experience of homelessness, domestic violence, and complex trauma.

In this clash of culinary titans, each chef will craft a unique dish using Mecca Coffee as a key ingredient and The Ironclad Co.’s cast iron cookware to bring their recipes to life. Diners, playing a crucial role as judges, will determine the fate of each chef, ultimately choosing the one who will be crowned the winner.

The participating chefs, selected for their shared values of innovation, creativity, and empowerment, include Toby Stansfield from Lola’s Bondi, Jack Fitzhenry from The Wedge, Jen Shaw representing Two Good Co., and Cathy Tran from Kiln.

Don’t miss this extraordinary event that promises not only an incredible culinary experience but also a celebration of community, creativity, and positive impact.
