Eurolounge Goes Freerange



Multi award winning restaurant Eurolounge located in Castle Hill has decided to only use free range eggs in its kitchen.

Co-owner Karlene Dimbrowsky who is a long term advocate for using free range eggs and has three chickens at home is instrumental in having this policy implemented in an environment where profit margins are tight. “Not everything is about the money, some things are more important and I’m thrilled we’re finally doing this.” Karlene said. “We’re not looking to change the world but we do want to make this change that is important to us and in a small way and maybe makes others think about the issue” she said.

Owner and Mayor of the Hills Council Peter Dimbrowsky says that this is a personal statement from the entire Eurolounge team. “We talked about it as a team and the feeling was unanimous.” “We’re committed to using free range eggs in the kitchen and we’ve registered with the RSPCA’s Choose Wisely (http://www.choosewisely.org.au/) program as part of our public commitment.” He said.

Head Chef Alex Hau said “Eurolounge usually uses 40 dozen eggs per week which means 80 birds will be “employed” in a free range environment to provide for the restaurant and that’s got to be good news for everybody.

Eurolounge was recently featured in the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide as one of six restaurants in Sydney for its environmentally sustainable policies.
