Do you know what you're really eating?

OPINION: When a plate of food is presented in front of you, have you ever thought where has it come from and how was it prepared?

It's easy to order and just eat… right?

But what has the restaurant done to create it? Has a lot of thought and love gone into each and every item on your plate?

Before opening Eat we did a lot of research to get the best local products to serve to customers.

There is no substitute for quality.

When we put together each menu, we try and test every element of the dish.

We pride ourselves on quality and we put a lot of thought and love into every dish that we create.

We change our menu seasonally, as each season there are new fresh ingredients that are in their prime.

The Fraser Coast region has become a foodie destination in the past couple of years and is now recognised all over Australia and overseas.

Tourism has increased, which is amazing news for us all.

On our existing menu we have steak, chips and eggs and beef brisket pizza - what it encompasses is slow-braising Nolan's Private Selection brisket for 14 hours overnight.

The brisket is put into a large roasting tray with onion, carrots, tomatoes, stock and herbs, tightly wrapped and then placed into the oven on 110 degrees for 14 hours.

Once removed from the oven, the meat falls apart.

The juices of the brisket are strained, reduced and made into a delicious sauce that the brisket sits in prior to serving - this process makes the meat full of flavour and so it melts in your mouth. Nothing is wasted.

Nolan's Meat is based in Gympie; we have a great relationship with Terry Nolan himself also.

We have been lucky enough to tour the abattoir and the animals are treated with upmost respect. Food sustainability is very important to us.

Our bacon and eggs just aren't your average bacon and eggs.

The bacon we receive from Dale at Kawungan is house smoked, which means they have full control of the quality of the product we receive, and our eggs are Fraser Coast Free Range Organic eggs - you certainly can see and taste the difference.

We make our own house blend baked beans, granola, cold press coffee (iced coffee), iced chocolate, bake all sweets and so much more.

We have control of quality, which is very important to us.

It's important to us to serve everyone consistent, high-quality food each and every day.

Next time you eat anywhere, just think about it.
