Alex Elliott-Howery is the co-founder of what has become a thriving
and boundary-breaking food community in inner Sydney. She runs the
Cornersmith cafes, renowned for their big heart and strong
conscience when it comes to sustainably sourced food. Alex teaches
pickling and preserving workshops at the Cornersmith cooking
school, the Picklery. She and her team of picklers, fermenters,
cheesemakers, bread bakers and others have taught many hundreds of
classes over the years.
Sabine Spindler, known as the 'waste warrior', is head chef and chief salad creator at the Cornersmith cafes. Her experience working in fine dining restaurants in Europe left her shocked by the amount of good food that goes to waste on a daily basis in the hospitality industry.
