We are pleased to support the Cooking from Home project by Know Your Nation, which celebrates cultural diversity and aims to create a more connected Fremantle community.

The project comprises four workshops to upskill nine people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds with an interest in cooking, who will then go on towards hosting three pop-up restaurants in May and June.

The idea behind Cooking from Home is to bring together lots of different cuisines – the home cooks will be cooking Indonesian, Chinese, Fijian Indian, Lebanese, Italian, Brazilian, Welsh and Turkish food.

The pop-up community restaurants will be held at Fremantle PCYC on 9 May, 29 May and 20 June. They will each seat 80-100 people and are a way for the community to celebrate other cultures through the fantastic food showcased by the Cooking From Home participants. They are an opportunity for people from the local community to get to know each other better and break down barriers between the cooks and community, and to hear participants share their stories and experiences through video and photography displays.

We are pleased to be giving away eight places to the final round table dinner on 20 June.  For your chance at a two free places, email us on: info@mftwa.org.au and tell us about your family’s favourite meal and how it brings you together.

You can also book your place at all three dinners here:
