Our Executive Chef - Angela Blanch
Angela or ‘Angie’ Blanch is our local and very distinguished chef. When she is not raising her three young kids and managing the catering at Macgregor State School, she is cooking at weddings and lifestyle weekends held here at Natural Bridge. Angie is passionate about where she sources her ingredients, only utilising local and organic produce to ensure the yummiest and healthiest of meals.
She says: "When food can be eaten close to the source and in season, it will always be at its best. I love to be able to cook with amazingly fresh, locally grown/organic food, produced by passionate people. It takes real love and commitment to be a farmer. The most amazing strawberries are always picked and eaten in the garden, just like tomatoes...well, everything!"
Angie has had an extensive career cooking across Australia, from Perisher in the snow fields to the iconic Pineapple Hotel in Brisbane. She is known for her innovative and down to earth style, fusing different cultures, such as Asian/Australian with a twist of the Mediterranean. We know you will love her ideas and desire to create something beautifully unique for your special day.
Our local ethical produce
Angela’s passion is also our passion here at Natural Weddings, as we always try our best to source local, organic and ethical produce whenever we can. We are particularly concerned with the food mile, which is the measure of distance food travels from where it is grown or raised to where it is purchased by the consumer.
The nutritional value of a food will degrade the longer it has to travel, but with locally sourced foods you can be assured for fresher, more nutritious food. When we source as local and as naturally as we can, we are supporting healthy ethical farming practices, which benefits both us and reduces our carbon footprint.
