Fresh food, local produce made with love...
For George Isaac and Kirstyn Owens, planning and preparing inspiring meals for their customers at Gunabul Homestead is truly a labour of love.
Having started their catering company ‘Zesty Edibles’ some years ago, the talented couple have taken over the kitchen at the historic Gympie venue, and have found a setting where the atmosphere perfectly matches their mouthwatering food.
George brings a wealth of knowledge and diversity to his team, having trained under one of New Zealand’s finest and Internationally renowned chefs, Kent Baddeley.
George is passionate about using fresh, seasonal ingredients, and diligently sources the best and freshest products from local growers. George’s menus are built around his love of the highest quality produce, and he enjoys preparing meals that are rustic, provincial and comforting. He understands the importance of people coming together to share simply delicious food that is not fussy or pretentious, in a relaxing, hospitable environment. And the Zesty Edibles wait staff work hard to match the superb food with excellent service.
Having worked throughout Queensland and the USA, Kirstyn has used her skills and experience to establish a style and sophistication all of her own, in both her menu design and patisserie work. Although she is fully trained and qualified as a chef, Kirstyn’s real love is baking, and over 15 years she has perfected her dessert making, baking, patisserie and decorating skills.
Kirstyn enjoys the challenge of bringing unique cake designs to life, and experimenting with flavours and ingredients to create sumptuous and unique confections that are guaranteed to be the talking point of your function, celebration or special night. If you can dream it up, Kirstyn can make it happen.
The Zesty Edibles team have ventured into the craft beer world and are extremely excited about their very own "Gunabul Golden Ale", a beautifully blended beer with all the Queensland flavours you would expect from a hand crafted brew. “Gunabul Golden Ale” is brewed by award winning boutique Capalaba brewery “Bacchus Brewing Co”.
There is nothing Kirstyn and George enjoy more than consulting with clients to create the celebration, function or wedding of their dreams. The couple have more than 20 years experience in creating memorable meals and memories for their happy customers, so be sure to call them on 07 5482 3107 to discuss how they can make your event special.
