Saltbush Kitchen is an adventure in Australian native foods
Our vision is to see Australian bushfoods in every pantry across Australia - to see tables overflowing with the delicious foods our Australian landscape has to offer. Saltbush Kitchen is the creative brain child of Brigid Corcoran, a self-confessed creative procrastinator, Brigid channels her creativity into both food and art.
Brigid tells the story so far…
It took more than a decade of working in community development and hospitality for me to consider opening my own food business. It’s been quite the adventure drawn from many experiences. In my community development role I worked in social enterprise internationally and found the most effective way to develop a relationship was at the dinner table, where people would share food from their country and culture.
Fast forward 5 years, I was researching a business concept involving spices and I thought about that experience - if those women sat at my dinner table, what food would I share from my country and my Australian culture? From that point my research took a right-hand turn and I haven’t looked back.
After spending a year at regional farmers markets, selling a range of gourmet products, Saltbush Kitchen opened its doors in October 2014 at M.A.D.E (the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka) in Ballarat. Saltbush Kitchen has grown to offer an Australian food experience that I am so proud of. I continue to find new and adventurous ways to give you access to, and knowledge of, Australian bushfoods.
