Amalia Kogoi

Founded in 2018 by Amalia, Rusticate Produce & Catering is now well into its journey as a bespoke small business. As the founder and director, you will find Amalia at the forefront of every interaction. She works with customers to create and design perfect and individualised Grazing Tables, pack orders received from the online store, and provide high quality customer service. She does it all!

The definition of ‘Rusticate’ is to go, live in, or spend time in the country, fitting Rusticate’s Regional Victorian roots where it all began. Rusticate’s barn logo was replicated from the residence in Daylesford where Amalia learnt to grow produce, care for livestock, and understand the importance of community.

Amalia gained overseas hospitality experience in the mountains of Colorado, USA and upon return expanded her love for the industry. She completed a Triple Diploma in Hospitality, Event Management, and Travel & Tourism with William Angliss Institute. From this, her excitement for food and her passion for quality service evolved. Amalia’s 10 years experience ensured Rusticate has been nurtured with love and care.

Amalia’s vision for Rusticate, alongside bringing people together, is to provide Melbourne with a taste of the country and everything it has to offer.
