Presenter: Peter Manifis
Air Date: 24th November 2019
Sustainability is something everyone is very conscious of these days, and there is a restaurant in Fremantle that has made it one of their key principles.
- Set in an original 1920s warehouse, The Raw Kitchen is centred around the ethos of healthy, sustainable living. Emma and Heath have brought together a plant-based restaurant, a zero-waste store, a kombucha microbrewery and a yoga studio space.
- The Raw Kitchen started with Emma and Heath running workshops and lectures – Heath is a naturopath by trade, and Emma was studying medicine, so both were interested in health.
- Their idea quickly gained momentum, becoming a café, and eventually a restaurant.
- The Raw Kitchen focuses on using real, wholefood natural ingredients in creative ways. They make cheeses, dishes with nuts, and are able to create delicious flavours and textures without the use of refined ingredients.
- The Raw Kitchen hosts Perth’s largest plastic free, zero-waste store, with a focus on providing beautiful, sustainable alternatives to everyday plastics, such as glass or paper straws.
- All little things make a difference, with The Raw Kitchen repurposing things before they reach the end of their life cycles.
- Kombucha is made on site, brewed with herbs to be as medicinal and healthy as possible. It is the perfect drink to have with your meal – it’s a great palate cleanser, and gives your gut the beneficial microbes it needs.
