Name: Pete ‘Chief Stirrer’ Whalan - CEO Bayleys Canterbury

What is your cooking experience? I’ve been known to get really creative sometimes, but the microwave is always there for a backup. My first cooking memory was alongside my mother, who incidentally loved the wooden spoon and taught me the versatility of said spoon – because she was such a great cook and she raised five kids with it in reach … 24/7

What would your cooking signature dish be? I grew up in the South Canterbury High Country, so it’s anything with meat, meat and more meat.

Why are you cooking to help disadvantaged Canterbury children get a fair start in education? Every child deserves a chance, so this is about giving them a hand-up to give them a normal functional start in education. I’m honoured to be able to make a contribution, to be part of that “hand up“ for those in need

What does being part of Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose mean to you and your organisation? It has been a huge privilege for Bayleys to pull this event together. We are passionate that every child deserves a fair shot at an education and, together with our CEOs battling it out in the crowdfunding domain, we can help the Christchurch City Mission provide Canterbury children with a foundation for their future.

How can the general public help you? For all donations to my page over $500, to say thanks I will personally subscribe you to MiNDFOOD Magazine and we’ll also print your name in The Press. For donations over $1,000, you will get a seat at my table (limited to the first 10). I will cook for you and I will credit you in The Press. You’ll also have the knowledge that your donation will be fully kitting out a child for school – and that is pretty special. I thank you for that.

Any additional information that donors might find compelling? Please support me in supporting the Christchurch City Mission’s Back to School programme. If your organisation would like me to come cook a team lunch for a set price - on this page - let’s discuss!
