Australians are being challenged to host a French dinner party with help from celebrity chef, Manu Feildel, to raise money for breast cancer research.

Even though we might not be able to have people over in Melbourne, this would be a great opportunity to share a wonderful meal with your family or organise a Zoom dinner party with a few other families.

Food lovers all over Australia will be encouraged to ‘stay in and entertain’ this August to support clinical trials research, that aims is to save every life from breast cancer

World leading research organisation, Breast Cancer Trials, is calling all bon vivants to join their 3 Course Challenge

This challenge of life-saving proportions (or should we say portions) invites Australians to cook a three course French menu and host a dinner party with a difference. Dinner party hosts will reach out to their network of friends and family to support them in their challenge by donating to life-saving breast cancer trials research.

Manu will curate the French menu for the 3 Course Challenge and all registered dinner party hosts can join him for a livestreamed cooking class, giving them tips and tricks before they entertain, to ensure that their dinner party will be a delicious success.

Hosts will have the chance to interact with Manu, asking him questions about his French menu throughout the livestream.

Manu is passionate about supporting breast cancer research as his own mum, Evelyne, was diagnosed with the disease eight months ago.

Fortunately, Evelyne’s cancer was detected early and after chemotherapy treatment, she is doing well.

Watching his mother go through treatment was a challenging time for Manu who says, “Chemotherapy is a smack in the face. It really takes over the body.”

It was his mum who sparked Manu’s love for cooking while raising him in Nantes, France, saying she taught him everything he knows about food and cooking.
