My name is Mala Manku, and I'm the CEO of Cavendish Group, a boutique corporate development and search firm.
Food is one of my passions, so when I heard about CEOCookOff I immediately wanted to become invovled. This innovative event will raise money awareness for a very worthy cause, the present challenges of obesity and good nutrition. It also reflects my particular interests in ancient herbs, spices and superfoods, and using them in a new style of nutrient-dense cooking, without compromising wonderful taste.
It is rare to find a fundraising event that so perfectly combines personal zeal and a virtuous cause. CEOCookOff is exactly that, and I’m very much looking forward to sharing my cooking with others.
I'm participating in the 2017 CEO CookOff, in partnership with the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and UKHarvest. This incredible fundraising event will see the nation’s top CEOs and senior business leaders join forces with first-class chefs to cook a banquet for 100s of everyday heroes who work in our schools and hospitals, as a thank you for their amazing work.
Between now and the night itself, we’re also working towards an amazing £2 million fundraising target, which will be used to tackle food waste and provide food education to people throughout the UK. The funds raised will be donated to food waste charity UKHarvest and will be used by the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation to support food education schemes.
I'd love your support.
A big thank you to My Sponsors
The real heroes who are kindly supporting me achieve my goal.
