Two Good’s Chef of the Month is Mat Lindsay – the chef responsible for the acclaimed restaurants Ester and Poly, as well as the author of the modern Australian cookbook ‘Ester.

Through the Chef of the Month program, social enterprise Two Good partners with top chefs who create delicious menus that are cooked and served at their cafe in Darlinghurst’s Yirranma Place, and are also available to purchase through their catering service. All proceeds from the sales will help at-risk women affected by domestic violence, homelessness and trauma find employment.
