Everyone, we would like you to meet Kate Raymont..
Kate is a true Eat Local ambassador, who champions local produce through her event catering and boutique deli on Main Street, Tamborine Mountain.
For the past 8 years, Kate has worked alongside local Scenic Rim producers, learning a lot about the delicious ingredients she uses. In 2012, Kate catered the very first Eat Local Week dinner for 250 guests at Aratula - she sourced all ingredients from the Scenic Rim and served up a three course feast!
The look, smell and taste of a platter of Kate's food will delight. What's even better though, is before you dig in (or whilst you are digging in!), Kate can enlighten you to the "who", "what", "where" and "how"s of every ingredient. There's nothing more satisfying than eating delicious, fresh food AND knowing exactly where it has come from and who has produced it.
Kate opened The Vintage Pickle in October 2016, combining her love of local, quality ingredients and event catering into a beautiful boutique deli.
"Supporting local producers means supporting the local community, who in turn, support me. It's a full circle and it makes perfect sense, economically and ethically. Personally, I am very proud to have a space in which to champion local produce and it is very important to me to tell the producers' stories alongside my own." - Kate Raymont.
Kate has also been a strong supporter for Allamburra Organics and you'll find our googy eggs sitting pretty in the fridge at The Vintage Pickle!
