We've lost touch with food and where it comes from. Our mission is to reconnect.
RAW started like many great projects do: from a simple idea. One of those ‘wouldn’t it be cool if…’ moments. Things like butchery and fish preparation are fundamental parts of our food story. But these once commonplace skills seem to be becoming more of a dying art these days. Traditional dining experiences focus on eating and sometimes cooking food—which is awesome—but it’s only half the story. We’re excited to take people on food journeys to give them confidence and skills they can take home and help bridge that gap.
Ethically sourced INGREDIENTS from farmers AND FISHERIES in the neighbouring AREAS allows us to support the local economy.

Wherever possible the aim is to source ingredients locally and based on seasonal availability. But that’s not everything. Ethical producers and quality food that is truly sustainable is vital. RAW supports farms and fisheries that meet those criteria as well as foraging locally for ingredients. Of course, some things just aren’t available locally due to climate and other factors. For example, RAW isn't going to stop using olive oil just because it’s an import! But we'll still try to source it from a small, high quality supplier that can send them in reusable containers to minimise waste.
