The Seagrass Boutique Hospitality Group are long-time supporters of OzHarvest and veterans of the CEO Cookoff™. In the lead up to the 2020 event, we caught up with CEO and founder, Bradley Michael and Executive Chef at 6HEAD, Sean Hall, who will be leading Team Seagrass in the kitchen this year.
Why do you support the CEO CookOff?
Bradley Michael: We support OzHarvest’s CEO CookOff every year because they are doing good work making a difference in the community and adding value to people’s lives. It’s important for us to give as much back as we can and OzHarvest’s experience as leaders in food rescue helps us reach out to many more people in need.
Why are you passionate to be leading a kitchen?
Sean Hall: It’s great to be doing something I love on such a special evening for such an amazing cause. Ronni and the OzHarvest team are so inspirational and have done great things for people in need not just in Australia but around the world. The food we cook for our very special guests on the night makes them feel world-class and inspires the chefs to do more. It’s great to see how much people and businesses out there care and to see all of us coming together; it makes such a big difference.
What thoughts or advice do you have for anyone considering participating in the CEO CookOff?
Bradley Michael: I encourage everyone to experience the CEO CookOff if they can. The hospitality business is about serving and giving, but we can all serve and give in our everyday lives too. If everybody in the world gives just a little, we can change the world and make a huge difference.
