On a daily basis Two Good Co reminds us that every individual is worthy of love and respect. The Sydney-based social enterprise, which started life as an organic soup kitchen in 2007, does this by creating, selling and donating delicious, nutritious food to support women in crisis.

This cookbook is a celebration of the food Two Good Co creates and the goodness it shares, through its shelter meals, catering service, jar lunches, market stalls and cooking classes. There are more than 100 recipes, grouped into chapters covering food for warm days, meals for cool days, inbetweens and sweet things. The recipes have been provided by Two Good Co’s wide network of globally renowned chefs and cooks, as well as the talented Two Good Co kitchen team, with plenty of tips and tricks for making the most of simple ingredients.  

Above all, this book demonstrates that food is more than food. It includes stories of resilience – both heart-wrenching and heart-warming – from people whose lives have been transformed through their association with Two Good Co: survivors of domestic abuse, trainees in Two Good’s ground-breaking employment pathway program; managers of women’s refuges; and communities supporting victims of natural disasters.

By buying this book you will help Two Good Co continue its vital work, and by sharing home-cooked meals you will nurture the people around you. After all, we all deserve love, respect and good food.

Two Good began ten years ago as an ad-hoc Kings Cross cook-out for the area’s less fortunate. Their road-side barbecue evolved into Australia’s first organic soup kitchen at Saint Canice’s in Kings Cross and in June 2015 they launched their ‘Eat one, treat one’ model. For every meal purchased, they'd give an identical one to a local women’s refuge for domestic violence survivors. Since Two Good launched, and with the invaluable backing of their customers and corporate supporters, they have dedicated themselves to doing everything they can to restore a sense of self-worth in the women they serve. Chefs talk all the time about cooking with love. Two Good are inspired by that, and want to remind those who need it most that everybody deserves to feel worthy of that love.
