WADE Drummond has a dream; to bring a little Masterchef experience and a lot of food education to Fremantle as part of a new project.

A contestant on the popular TV cooking show in 2012, the North Fremantle resident has been keeping himself busy since then, becoming known as Perth’s ‘crumpet guy’ with his homemade breakfast stall at the Subiaco Markets.

But it’s his latest idea that has the foodies excited.

Mr Drummond is looking to open the Leake St. Cafeteria, a place offering coffee and healthy lunch cuisine as well as his food education program Cooking for a Generation.

Launching a Kickstarter campaign last week to help him raise the $15,000 needed to realise his dream, he said the initial funds would be used to help fit out the venue and purchase equipment needed to run both the cafe and school program.

“The school’s program aims to educate children in years 6 and 7 to what is possible with food,” he said.

“Most people stick to eating what they grew up with and are confined to the tastes of those directly around them.

“This program aims to provide education in relation to all the types of foods out there and how to create meals while also teaching healthy eating habits. It is important to start the dialogue about what it means to be healthy and what dietary improvements can be made.”

The cafe will be at the back of Kakulas Sister with entry available through Leake Street before 9am.
