Two Good Co + Saint Cloche
The Two Good Co mission began over ten years ago when founder, Rob Caslick instigated an an ad-hoc Kings Cross cook-out, proving wholesome, nutritious meals for those living in the area and doing it tough.
Since the beginning, Two Good has delivered hundreds of thousands of meals to refuges and shelters and created innumerable hours of paid social employment for women in dire circumstances. Through their flagship ‘Work Work’ employment pathways to programs, they hire women from shelters they serve, empowering them to re-establish their self-belief and independence, while bridging the ‘love and skills’ gap in their journey to re-entering the workforce after living in crisis.
Basically, Two Good Co are a business that does good. At the forefront of all they do, Two Good Co reminds us that every individual is worthy of love and respect. Through the creation of beautiful, high-quality food and products, Two Good Co support, empower, and employ women with lived experience of domestic violence and homelessness.
Saint Cloche began collaborating with Two Good Co in 2021 for the production of their second cookbook with Australian artist Emily Imeson (represented by Saint Cloche) for Cook Book Two - Recipes for Resilience. The book is a collection of moments celebrating meals that have the potential to change the course of someone’s life for good, with recipes from Australia's leading chefs and the women of the Two Good Co kitchen, accompanied by Emily’s paintings. As part of the collaboration, a limited-edition tea towel featuring the painting Love is Good – Love is Two Good, was sold to raise funds for the Two Good Foundation. The tea towel was made from ethically grown 100% organic cotton in a GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified factory, using eco-friendly inks.
In 2023, the "Change the Course Cookbook" by Two Good Co., featuring the rich and soulful paintings by Saint Cloche represented artist, Leanne Xiu Williams as end papers and chapter openers. With 100+ new recipes celebrating the power of good food this book focuses on simple, adaptable day-to-day recipes, capturing the beauty of raw ingredients and the warmth of home-cooked meals.
Paying homage to their roots in this book, Two Good emphasized that having less time or money should never mean less love and nourishment. This cookbook showcases the belief that good food, prepared with care, is a universal act of love—with the power to change lives. Featuring shorter recipes, simpler ingredients, and adaptable techniques, it's crafted to help everyone achieve goodness with less.
50% of the profits support women at risk of homelessness, aligning with Two Good’s commitment to empowerment. To learn more about Leanne's collaboration, watch the behind-the-scenes video produced by Andrew & Chris Yee.
