In 2014, whilst playing for the Western Sydney Wanderers, I was approached by a good friend to assist in the promotion of his gyms' membership drive.
Happy to assist, we discussed some options, before finally landing on a pretty out-of-the-box idea.
Every renewal would earn an entry in a prize draw with the major prize being a private, three-course dinner for the winner and four guests, cooked by me in their very own home.
The eventual winner was a lovely lady by the name of Lynn who hosted her partner a three work colleagues a few weeks later.
The theme for the night was "grilled", so I created a menu where all three dishes heroed a grilled element. You can view the menu at the bottom of this piece.
The event was a huge success with both myself and the guests enjoying the occasion.
Many of the guests even threw on an apron and joined me in the preparation, which left me feeling motivated to hold another event.
And so began Jerrad's Kitchen, the worlds most unique dinning experience.
