A FODMAP or paleo breakfast? Half coconut, half almond milk in your coffee? Rapadura instead of refined sugar?

Dominique Rizzo describes her style as “sustainable and somewhat frugal“, which means a thoughtful use of produce from responsible local suppliers; their own kitchen garden, or on occasion, from customers’ backyards. Her low-wastage philosophy sees as much as possible made in-house, including chutney, jam, sauces and pickles and sweet treats from imperfect fruit and veg. A range of hands-on cooking classes and workshops showcase various cuisines and techniques from reducing food wastage to cooking with the best beef cuts. Join the locals with your KeepCup or home mug for a perfectly made coffee from local roaster, Wolff.
