Far Meadow Table is a cooking school, dining experience and catering service in Berry on the NSW South Coast, just two hours south of Sydney. A tree-change and food dream brought to life by husband and wife team Kath and Iain Smart, who have created a gourmet oasis just five minutes from the centre of Berry.
Kath and Iain both share a deep passion for food. Iain’s experience includes working in some of London’s top Michelin starred restaurants as well as a caterer and private chef, but since moving south you can find him stoking the grill or tending to the bees. Kath has an events and catering background and has years of experience organising all types of specialised events, from intimate dinners to large scale corporate experiences.
Having previously run a busy inner-west cafe in Sydney, both are looking forward to putting their passion and their own produce on the plate. One of the biggest appeals of relocating to Berry was being able to grow their own produce. The vegetable garden, orchard, tomato and herb garden will be a key source of ingredients for the Far Meadow Table kitchen.
Alongside this, produce from local farmers and gardeners, fishermen and artisans will be turned into unique seasonal dishes celebrating the beautiful South Coast.
