Ok so everything has ripened all in the month of August! We have been scrambling to harvest as much as we can. It’s going to hard on the wild life that depends on berries in October and November. #weirdautumn

Here is what they had to say:

 

Kai Café and Restaurant

“At the award-winning Kai Café + Restaurant, light streams through a generous roof-lantern into the rustic stone-and-wood dining room, giving a visceral sense of connection to the west coast’s rugged landscape, from where the ingredients for its dishes are sourced.

With a focus on doing things simply, owners David and Jessica Murphy have created in Kai a food experience that is at once basic and innovative, unadorned and yet beautiful. Having recently joined the Food Made Good (Sustainability), their ethos is one of conscious symbiosis with their environment.”

The Sustainable Restaurant Association is founded as a not-for-profit organisation by Giles Gibbons, Simon Heppner, and two restaurant owners, Henry Dimbleby MBE (Co-Founder of Leon, Co-Author of the School Food Plan and Founder of StreetFeast) and Mark Sainsbury (Founder of Moro, The Zetter Group & Grainstore).
The SRA created a unique framework to simplify the complexity of sustainability for the industry.
