COME TO THE TABLE -Tales from the making of a community cookbook

Willy Lit Fest

Event Date: 18 June 2017
Author / Presenters: Shayne Francis Sidhu, Maria Haughey

A moment of temporary insanity in a parent meeting launched a year-long odyssey that came with a carnival of characters, a very steep learning curve and culminated in a delightful book. A rich collection of recipes as eclectic as the people and families who shared their stories, flavours and histories to make it possible.
Shayne Francis Sidhu talks with Maria Haughey about the joys and tribulations of producing and publishing a fund raising community cookbook.

Join us at Williamstown Literary Festival as Shayne recounts tales of forging sponsorship relationships with local businesses, engaging with community personalities, navigating the treacherous waters of volunteer committees, harnessing the talents of award winning photographers and sharing the sheer pleasure of cooking beautiful food with the students of Elwood College.

Sure to be filled with funny stories and great insights!

Shayne Francis Sidhu is an actor, Arts Management student at RMIT and Elwood College parent.
