What is CEO CookOffTM all about?


In this time of crisis and into the future, OzHarvest will be doing all that they can to reach those who are affected by fires, drought, and floods, in addition to continuing to support the 1,300 charities that rely on them every day.

The OzHarvest CEO Cookoff™ fundraising will focus on the food crisis relief in four categories:

•        Keeping the wheels turning on our fleet of 57 food rescue vans that deliver food to over 1,300 charities around Australia

•        Resourcing a bespoke Mobile Market that will take free food directly to communities impacted by the ongoing fires and drought

•        Providing additional resources and support to our local OzHarvest operations in both metro and regional locations to meet the increase in food need

•        Delivering delicious and nutritious joyful community food events to areas that have been affected by droughts and fires, calling upon the support of Australia’s hospitality community
The 2020 CEO CookOff will be a festival of hope and joy, embodying the community spirit of Australia.

I'd love your support in helping me reach my fundraising goal! Every $1 donated to OzHarvest means they can deliver 2 meals to those in need.

My Bio

Born in 1972 in Haberfield, Chris Thé has lived in Sydney all his life. To pay his way through university Chris worked as a kitchen hand and even as he was completing degree in psychology at Sydney University he knew his path lay in cooking and worked his way up to become pastry chef at Bel Mondo, Claude’s and Quay restaurant.

After a career in commercial cookery working at Claude’s and Bel Mondo, in 2008 Christopher Thé opened his own boutique patisserie in Newtown, Sydney, which has flourished and garnered critical praise.
Chris is driven by a taste-up philosophy of food design rather than appearances and this can be tasted in every piece of deliciousness he creates.

But for Chris it isn't all about the food. He continually donates his time and resources to building a community around him. Through sponsoring events for artist-run projects and fashion shows, Thé shows that it isn't all about food to him.

Christopher Thé has long-standing industry and public support and he and his creations have graced the pages of Delicious and Vogue.
