Nicki Reimer – Executive Chef/Owner – Union Dining

Well I won’t lie, it was a bit of a letdown to be back at work yesterday, compared to my amazing days off with Tawnya, Lucy and the crew on the Straight To The Source tour of the Grampians. However, I felt reinvigorated about all the ingredients I use in the kitchen, and I was remembering what goes into getting them to my restaurant.

I felt it important to tell you both just how impressed I was with your organisation, enthusiasm, professionalism, generosity and sheer joy at what you do. I saw a lot, learnt a lot, ate a lot, and met some wonderful people, and for that, as a busy chef and owner of a restaurant, I can not thank you enough. I will be recommending your ‘Straight To The Source’ food tours to everyone I know, and I am looking at my diary re: your trip to Eyre Peninsula later in the year.
