MamaBake - About Us

MamaBake is group, big batch cooking for mothers.  Mums get together regularly to group, big batch cook.  Each brings one big meal, they divide it up amongst them and go home with a number of meals cooked for the week. Results? Time off, close friends, new foods for the kids and the list of benefits goes on!

Michelle Shearer: Founder & Editor

Michelle Shearer

The MamaBake concept was conceived of by Michelle Shearer, surfing Mama of two children on the North Coast of NSW, Australia.

The idea was inspired when Michelle’s long-lost-and-then-found, dear school friend and Mama to four, Bec Clark, baked a big lasagne for the Shearer clan one day giving Michelle a free afternoon to go surfing instead of making dinner.

Michelle immediately wanted to reciprocate and the idea of cooking together and sharing the meals so that everyone could get some time off made sense and so MamaBake was born.

The first MamaBake session was held with four Mamas who cooked up one big dish each, they shared it out and voila!  Meals for four nights for each family.  That afternoon the MamaBakers trotted off home with sushi, chicken stew, fresh bread rolls, cheese and spinach pie and chilli con carne.

From there the MamaBake concept has captured the imagination of Mamas across the world.

About the original MamaBake group

From left to right: Bec, Naomi, Jodie, Amy and Michelle

MamaBake, the concept, was brought to life by a lively group of big batch cookin’ Mamas on the North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.   Since it started at the beginning of 2010, MamaBake cells have sprouted up across Australia and the world.

MamaBake brings Mamas a little free time and a sense of neighbourhood support and friendship.
