Determined to take advantage of a growing market for food products and ingredients, an entrepreneur in Queensland’s north-west is turning her dream kitchen into a reality.
The dream kitchen is an open-plan, multi-purpose kitchen designed to work with a range of different kitchen systems.
The idea is to combine the ease and convenience of a traditional kitchen with the ease of an open kitchen and provide a more sustainable alternative to conventional cookware.
The kitchen, called the Delta Kitchen Faucets is being built by the Food and Drink Kitchen Foundation in partnership with the Sunshine Coast Food and Restaurant Federation and the Northern Queensland University College of Agriculture and Fisheries.
The Delta Kitchen will be a large, modular, multi use kitchen designed with a focus on sustainability, including recycling and composting.
It will also have a number of integrated, open-air composting and storage systems.
Determined not to be left behind with a traditional cooking system, Ms Tait is aiming to create a menu that’s as simple and accessible as possible.
“The Delta Kitchen is designed to be a simple, efficient, environmentally-friendly kitchen, which makes it a perfect choice for people who don’t have the time to go out and cook their own meals,” she said.
Ms Tain said it would allow her to focus on her personal business, rather than her job as a cookbook author.
“I’ve been working with the Food & Drink Kitchen for the last five years and have really taken advantage of the opportunity to make a sustainable, beautiful kitchen,” she explained.
“It is a big part of who I am and the way I work.”
“We are very aware that sustainability is an important part of our business, and it is also a key part of what our food and beverage supply chain is about,” Ms Taimis owner of the Delta kitchen said.
“This kitchen is part of the wider family, and we are not going to stop at the kitchen and we’re not going away.”
The Delta kitchen is set to open in early 2019.
The main kitchen will feature a variety of stainless steel, copper and stainless steel appliances, including a range from high-end cookstoves, gas-fired ovens, wood-burning stoves and more.
The system will also feature a range and cooking surface, as well as an outdoor sink.
The doors will be stainless steel doors, which will be installed by the end of this year.
The whole kitchen will be designed to reduce waste, reduce carbon emissions and provide an attractive environment.
Ms Rynne said she wanted the kitchen to be more of a personal, community venture.
“What I’m trying to do is make it a really cool, family-friendly, environmentally sustainable space that’s designed to make you feel like you’re at home in a kitchen, and I want to do that with the people I cook with, the people who are making it for me,” she added.
“We have to make the kitchen work for everyone, but I also want it to be accessible for people in need.”
We want to give back to the community and give back as much as we can to the environment.
“So the community gets a chance to learn from each other, and get to know one another, and that’s what’s really going to make it work.” “
People are coming out to learn about sustainable cooking and how to do it, and to make this kitchen a place where people can come together to learn and have fun,” she told 7.30.
“So the community gets a chance to learn from each other, and get to know one another, and that’s what’s really going to make it work.”
A key component of the kitchen’s design will be the use of recycled materials.
The food and drink kitchen’s kitchen sink will be recycled from a food bank, while the kitchen sink is made of recycled ceramic.
Ms Hulst has been working as a kitchen cookbook editor for the past five years, but she has been looking to expand her knowledge of sustainability and sustainable kitchen design.
She has worked with the Delta Foundation, the Queensland Government, the Northern Agricultural College of the University of Queensland, the National Association of Sustainable Cooking and other community groups to develop the project.
Ms Thistle said it was her intention to provide a space where she could learn from other people who could contribute to the project, as it would help her to build a broader knowledge base for herself.
“My whole focus is to do things the right way, and if I can help other people get to the same level I think that’s the goal,” she admitted.
“Hopefully I can inspire others to do the same thing and be inspired by what I’ve been able to do.”
The restaurant is currently looking to raise funds for the project through a fundraising page on GoFundMe.
The project has received more than $20,000 towards its design, while Ms Riven has already secured more than 60 hours of work experience.
