Sophie Gray & destitute gourmet'

Cooking Demonstration was held in October 2010

With six best selling books to her name and numerous appearances on national television, radio and magazines; Sophie Gray and destitute gourmet have fast become household names.

Stylish, fashionable food that doesn't cost a fortune is the philosophy of destitute gourmet. Built around three key principles -Shop Smart, Eat Healthily and in Season and Make a Little bit of Luxury go a Long Way - the dg lifestyle is a very cost effective one.

Thank you to all of the attendees, our generous sponsor, Porse, the table participants, silent auction donators and all the suppliers of our spot prizes and wonderful goodie bags.  

You will find a list of our donors below and we ask that you continue to support them.

This was the must-see cooking demonstration of the year!

Sophie Gray the destitute gourmet presented her awesome cooking demonstration of stylish, fashionable food that doesn't cost a fortune.

The attendees received a fabulous goodie bag, delicious treats and the chance to taste samples of the recipes made during the evening. Plus they went home with lots of tips and a booklet containing Sophie's recipes from the night.


As a result, it was one of our most successful events with over $5,000 raised. 

As a Not for Profit organisation we rely on funding through such events as this to allow us to continue to offer Childbirth and Parent Education classes to the commuity
