Two time world champion Tom Carroll and Yallingup surf legend Taj Burrow will join Aaron Carr (Vasse Felix), Tony Howell (Margaret River Hospitality Group), Dany Angove (Leeuwin Estate) and Paul Iskov (Fervor) at Bib & Tucker in North Fremantle.

Billed as ‘more than a cocktail party but not quite asit down dinner’, SurfingChefsfor SurfAid will feature dishes prepared by the guest chefs alongside McHenry Hohnen and Bunkerswines.

The evening is the brainchild of Must Winebar chef Russell Blaikie, who began calling on his chef-mates to cook for free to support the cause.

“SurfingChefsfor SurfAidis about partnering a line-up of amazingchefswhosurfwith some of the greatestsurfersin the world to cook, party, and raise funds for the important work of SurfAid,” Mr Blaikie said.

“Over the years, we’ve raised close to $300,000 for SurfAid’swork in the remote islands of Indonesia.”

The SurfAid organisation works to assist remote villages in programs toprovide clean water, access to basic health care, and improved nutrition all with a “hand up, not a hand out” philosophy.

Local chef Paul Iskov will take part in the event for the second time and said he was looking forward to the spirited ambience of the SurfAid kitchen.

“It’s a fantastic experience, everyone jumps in and helps out and because we are all together working it gives each chef more of a chance to engage with the diners and talk about what they’re making,” Mr Iskov said.

“I remember the first time I went up for the event a couple of years ago, the first thing I saw when I walked in was Tom Carroll behind a huge pile of prawns, prepping and getting involved.”

Mr Iskov said as a keen surfer who had spent many weeks surfing Indonesia’s best breaks it was important to give back to the remote villages.

“To know that all we need to do is give up buying a coffee a few times a week, or donate a few days of our time to make a massive difference to those communities is incredible.”
