LIVING THE GOOD LIFE
At EPICURE the philosophy of Living the Good Life is at the heart of everything they do. From the farmers EPICURE choose, to the venues used, the quality of produce and the green credentials of EPICURE suppliers. By engaging in the best possible practices in every way, EPICURE aim to ensure that the good life is a reality for all they associate with; which means minimum harm and maximum enjoyment for everyone.
FOOD PHILOSOPHY: Why EPICURE’S food tastes so good.
EPICURE developed their food philosophy in 2007, with the unique aim of striving to use locally grown and produced foods wherever possible, to offer the best quality seasonal menus. Today, EPICURE is proud to be at the forefront of ethically responsible catering. They continue to be completely committed to sourcing and working with suppliers who demonstrate the best possible practices. EPICURE use cage free eggs, and free–range poultry and smallgoods wherever possible. EPICURE use only Australian farmed or wild seafood. EPICURE source local nuts, grains, vinegar and mineral water. EPICURE use Fair Trade coffee and Australian orange juice. And they do it in a way that makes everyone feel good; by ensuring their food is ethically and locally grown, and sustainably produced. Because at the end of the day, nothing tastes as good as a clear conscience.
SOCIAL PHILOSOPHY: How EPICURE helps those less fortunate.
EPICURE strongly believes in giving back to the community. As a minimum standard each EPICURE venue works with one organisation that is actively involved with assisting individuals and community groups who are less fortunate than themselves.
One such organisation is SecondBite, who source nutritious, surplus food and produce that might otherwise go to waste, and then distribute it to agencies and people in need. This enables EPICURE to minimise food wastage while helping others less fortunate.
