Our Launch Venue: 100 Mile Table was founded by Sarah Swan and Jeremy Burn. Sarah, a chef for over 25 years, and Jeremy has worked extensively with vineyards and wine brands in both London and New Zealand.
This unique location, has a very special philosophy; “At 100 Mile Table, we practice a ‘locavore’ philosophy – one of respect for the source.”
Shopping locally maintains relationships with farmers and food producers – those who make it, bake it, sow it and grow it. They acknowledge the importance of food miles, the health, wellbeing and good treatment of animals and crops, so they shop and cook accordingly.
At Mama Creatives we have organised an amazing year of evening talks, morning tea masterclass, expert panels, creative family school holiday workshops and more - we can't wait to share our community with you!
