Elsa puts on real fresh-is-best foodie spread

The Weekend Post - - News -

EAT Real founder Elsa Comino will be show­cas­ing some of her pop­u­lar meal range at the Cape York Ho­tel to­day.

The en­tre­pre­neur­ial foodie and cafe owner runs eater­ies at Bush Pi­lot Av­enue in Aeroglen and the Cape York Ho­tel.

To­day’s food tast­ing event will in­clude some of the freshis-best fare from Eat Real, as well as free bev­er­age sam­ples from Coop­ers, Ac­co­lade Wines and Di­a­geo.

Elsa said she ques­tioned the wis­dom of run­ning her own busi­ness last year, but con­tin­ued to push ahead.

“It’s be­cause I truly be­lieve in what I am do­ing and I want it so bad,” she said.

Open­ing a sec­ond eatery at the iconic Cape York Ho­tel “was an op­por­tu­nity I felt I had to take with both hands”.

“This has stretched my staff to try and meet my ex­pecta- tions of work­ing at both places,” she said. “I am do­ing what I am pas­sion­ate about, even though I spend a lot of time in tears – tears from frus­tra­tion to un­cer­tainty to meet­ing amaz­ing peo­ple ... and also cel­e­brat­ing spe­cial mo­ments that I have catered for.”

As well as its two eater­ies, Eat Real of­fers an on­line and de­liv­ery ser­vice of healthy meals, veg­e­tar­ian food and pa­leo-in­spired meals.

To­day’s event be­gins with a meet and greet at 4pm with the show­case of food be­gin­ning at 4.30pm.
