What is CEO CookOffTM all about?

I'M HELPING OZHARVEST RAISE $3MILLION TO FEED THOSE IN NEED IN THE OZHARVEST CEO COOKOFF.

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

With over 30 stellar years in the food industry behind him, a plethora of awards to his name, a handful of best-selling cookbooks under his belt, and the tour de force behind some of Australia’s most celebrated dining establishments; it’s safe to say that Matt Moran is an Australian food icon.

He is the owner of Aria Sydney, Aria Brisbane, Chiswick, Opera Bar, North Bondi Fish, Riverbar & Kitchen, Chiswick at the Gallery and Events by ARIA. His business continues to expand with the announcement of a new restaurant at Barangaroo on Sydney’s foreshore, due to open this year. In the pipeline, he also has several new venues in Sydney and Brisbane.

Matt is one of Australia's most recognised, celebrated and influential chefs, having hosted prime-time shows such as Masterchef and Masterchef Junior, Heat in the Kitchen, The Chopping Block, My Restaurant Rules, The Bank, his own conceptualised award-winning TV show Paddock to Plate, and most recently, The Great Australian Bake Off alongside Maggie Beer.

Matt is a published author. He’s written four best-selling cookbooks: Matt’s Kitchen Garden (2014), When I Get Home (2013), Dinner at Matt’s (2011) and Matt Moran (2008).

Among other achievements, he is also a frequent contributor to magazines and newspapers globally and he is a member of the culinary panel for Singapore Airlines designing in-flight menus. He was also awarded GQ’s Chef of the Year in both 2012 and 2014 and has been part of the national judging panel for the coveted Delicious Produce Awards, since its inception in 2005. Matt is also a fifth generation farmer and still owns a farm to this day. He has a true love of the land and is passionate about farming and creating exceptional produce.
