Founded in 1995, the Lonely Miaow Association is an incorporated, non-profit organisation dedicated to the rescue and care of stray and abandoned cats and kittens in the greater Auckland area. Every day we receive calls and e-mails from the public about homeless cats and kittens – they are often injured, starving or neglected. We rely solely on fundraising and donations to continue our work. As part of this fundraising work we are running a Valentines Day auction series to help raise desperately needed funds for Lonely Miaow Association Inc.

Up for grabs in this auction is a unique experience for two to have a private in-home cooking class, fully customised to your tastes and skill level with the incredible Kelila Jaffe. A huge thank you to Kelila who has volunteered her time as part of this auction.

Kelila is a well known chef and culinary instructor, offering more than 20 years' experience of combined restaurant and teaching kitchen experience. A member of the James Beard Foundation and the International Association of Culinary Professionals she is just as well versed in current trends as she is in food history. Kelila has taught at the University of Auckland, University of Hawaii and New York University. Her current PhD research in the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at New York University focuses on global food cultures and ancient diet. Kelila has won several grants and awards to support her research including the Dean's Grant for Graduate Student Research and the International Council for Archaeozoology Travel Award

Conditions: • Date of private cooking class to be arranged between auction winner and Kelila Jaffe directly • Auction winner will be required to complete a 15-30min phone conversation with Kelila prior to cooking session to confirm the custom nature of this item • All food & utensils required for the session to be provided at auction winner's expense • Private home provided by auction winner for cooking class to be within Auckland region only

    From the Lonely Miaow website TRAP, ASSESS, RESOLVE Our rescue method is known as trap-assess-resolve (TAR). We never return a cat back to a situation where its welfare is not going to be cared for, and we do whatever possible to rehome the cats and kittens we rescue. lmacat_rescue(713) • Tuesday, 12 February 2019
