Anyone who's ever had to name a child will know the struggle of selecting a name! We wanted a name to represent our local community, the bringing together of people and our passion to excite the senses. Aside from being in the title of our favourite book, Mockingbirds are known for being able to mimic the songs or calls of other birds calls, amphibians and insects. The most commonly known Northern Mockingbird is Mimus polyglottos - Mimus meaning Mimic, & Polyglottos meaning multiple languages. To us this made for a perfect fit - for Food is our language and one we can all understand. Food allows us to communicate without the need for words, heightening our senses through visual beauty, delicious smells and intriguing textures. The ultimate language, creating memories and crossing paths from all walks of life.
Food is a language we can all understand allowing us all to come together and enjoy!
