Fresh Tasmanian Produce
We ended up spending the better part of an hour with a chef telling us why he re-settled from Queensland to Tasmania. He was utterly in love with the produce, the fact everything he needed to make great meals was so close and arrived so fresh. And the access to the local producer, the fact in many cases it was the farmer himself that made the delivery to the restaurant having just picked or prepared the goods that morning.He thought it made him a better chef. So he moved his family and now he gets to live “the Tasmanian way”.
