Kelly Eastwood will be joining Adam Liaw on 'The Cook Up', screening this Wednesday Aug 4th at 7pm on SBS Food. In each episode of 'The Cook Up', host Adam Liaw, is joined by 2 special guests - chefs, cooks and celebrities - and together they cook up a variety of dishes, sharing their knowledge, tips and tricks of the trade, and providing everyday inspiration for foodies and non-foodies alike.
Liaw’s guests are celebrity chef Colin Fassnidge and Kelly Eastwood For those not yet familiar with Kelly and Eastwoods of Bermagui: After 14 years of working as a Private Chef to Royalty, Russian Oligarchs and many more on the Forbes list, Kelly Eastwood left the high seas and transferred her skills to Television. Working as a Home Economist and TV Food Producer for shows such as Masterchef, MKR, Better Homes and Gardens and The Great Australian Bake Off to name a few, it was River Cottage Australia that brought Kelly to the Far South Coast of NSW. When River Cottage Australia finished she started up her own business, Eastwood's Deli and Cooking School in picturesque Bermagui where she hosts cooking lessons, pop up dinners and coastal private catering events. 2020 brought some extraordinary changes at Eastwood's. Through the bushfires Eastwood's was converted into a Disaster Relief Kitchen for a not-for-profit organisation, called World Central Kitchen, where she executed 46,322 meals over 7 weeks with a team of 270 hard working volunteers feeding our firefighters, evacuees and displaced locals in surrounding communities. When the fires were over, celebrity chefs (below) helped Kelly kick-start her business again but alas the COVID restrictions set in and she was forced to rethink her business model once more for the year ahead.
Eastwood’s are now delivering take home meals every week on the far South Coast NSW, as well as the Sage markets in Moruya every Tuesday, and the Bermagui Grower’s Market every Thursday.
