William Bourke, affectionately known to us as Billy was the son of English immigrants searching for a new life and land down under. Drawn to Australia, the lucky country for its rich tapestry of produce and livestock.
Billy quickly fell in love with working the land and embracing a broad palate of flavours. In between farming and fishing, he was often in trouble for joy riding in his dad’s tractor, stealing hen’s eggs and the neighbour’s vegetables.
As he grew, he learnt products were seasonal, using native fruits, vegetables and meats in his meals, becoming intoxicated with all there was to offer. This formed the foundation of his food appreciation, where he believed that good food should warm your heart.
We hope his food does the same for you.
