About Us

Kangaroo Island Source connects you to the cleanest most natural flavours of Kangaroo Island.

Kangaroo Island Source was established by Kate Sumner on her farm-based kitchen overlooking the picturesque town of Penneshaw over a decade ago after she fell in love with the pristine natural environment of Kangaroo Island.

Kate developed a vision to create a food business that connected people with the authentic flavours & artisan food producers of Kangaroo Island. Kangaroo Island Source feeds not only the body but also the mind. By staying true to this vision Kate has earned herself a reputation as Kangaroo Island’s most produce driven chef

All ingredients & produce are hand selected & supplied by local producers who share our philosophy.  With this home-grown approach, Kate has created a range of spice pastes, rubs & relishes all of which are produced at the KI Source Kitchen.

In addition to their gourmet food range, Kangaroo Island Source provides a range of catering options for visitors to the region &  events from intimate private dinners to large outdoor weddings. 

The Kangaroo Island Source kitchen plays host to seasonal long table dinners & regular cooking classes which focus on sourcing the best regional produce, treating it simply but respectfully & presenting it in a way that retains a ‘sense of place’ unique to Kangaroo Island.
