"COOK UP" SERIES

"Cook up" is an unique collaboration series. It is about chefs coming together and bringing their conversation & inspiration from a co-lab kitchen to the wider public. In this case 1+1 is never just 2, everything is possible!

A strong part of "Cook Up" series ticket sales goes always towards ConversatioNZ.
