Bre Parkes Thoughts

Wow! First journal post. I guess I should introduce myself – my name is Bre but, I’m sure you already knew that. I’m a late twenty-something who has worked out what she loves – food and design and I’ve realised how to use both of my passions each and every day.

My first Grazing Table was December 2016 and since then, I have been juggling full-time work and I have been using after hours and weekends for Gather & Graze, meeting so many wonderful people along the way and helping them celebrate events of every occasion.

I wouldn’t be here without the help of the following friends; Ryan Tarca, Rosa Lindon, Sarah Stokes, Daniel Chiali, Ben Ramsey, Nick Lawrence & Jono Hersey over the past few months we have been working towards taking this Gather & Graze venture of mine full-time. The website, platter packaging and branding are becoming one and I tell you what, I’m so excited!

2017 has been a busy year for me with a two-month adventure eating myself silly around Europe and my partner and I moving into our first home – I am so thrilled to finally launch the new brand of Gather & Graze and I hope you enjoy it too!
