Hankering for a Sunday full of standout baked goods, warm mugs of batch brew and Sydney's best secondhand cook books? Want to round it out with a pét-nat mimosa? You have great taste (and are oddly specific), but luckily, the Sydney-based creative studio Buffet has you covered.

This Sunday, April 2, the lofty DRNKS space in Alexandria will be hosting The Cookbook Market by Buffet. From 11am until 3pm, the booze store is being transformed into a book shop, complete with the weekend staples of fresh-outta-the-oven carby creations from Good Ways Deli and cups from the experts at Mecca Coffee. The DRNKS team will have refreshing sips on offer, and Buffet's vibrant range of food-leaning prints and merch from your fave dining destinations will be on-hand, too. The best bit? It's all in support of charity.

Literacy for Life Foundation is the Aboriginal-led charity that supports adults in First Nations communities with low literacy levels — and is making a mission of ending Aboriginal illiteracy Down Under. As an editorial business, this is a cause close to our hearts. So on Sunday, this is where you'll find us.

Got a book you don't bake from enough? Committed all your fave dishes to memory? Up until Saturday, April 1, DRNKS will be stockpiling your good quality cookbooks at its 72/20-28 Maddox Street, Alexandria space. So dig through your shelves, donate and then go restock with a new (old) book to cook from on Sunday.
