Former chef George Calombaris is back with a new cooking venture known as 5pm Cookalong.

A billboard in Brighton is advertising his new COVID-19 venture which began in March when he started sharing tips and recipes for people at home.

The how-to series is featured via his Instagram and features recipes from everyday ingredients at home.

Mr Calombaris wrote: “You will receive three incredible meals for the whole family to cook along with me. No waste for a healthy meal, comfort food and a dinner party feast. First week is all hits from Hellenic.”

In March, the chef launched the program in March and said that the goal was to unite people through food during tough times.

He released an Instagram video thanking people for their love and support for him and his family.

“We are grateful and I am grateful. It’s a tough day, it’s a tough time for the entire world. It’s important that we all stick together and be united. We can get through this,” he wrote.

This hear he drew attention when he put his Toorak mansion on the market but it has been leased rather than sold.
