Begin your journey with us....

Our Food

Learn about the art and science of cooking beautiful food. Take inspiration from a wealth of different ingredients, cuisines and techniques to prepare and enjoy your food to the max. From Asia to (New) Zealand and everywhere in between, there is a dish waiting for you to cook. Our food could be every-day, high-day or holiday. It may even impress with specialist skills such as gluten-free or egg-free cooking. Whatever you choose to eat, make sure it’s you that put it on the plate.

Our school

Learning how to cook is a life-long process. A chore for some, a passion for others. We are not born chefs – we absorb the knowledge and skills over time, from books, from TV or from a loving parent or whanau. With time and effort, we can become better more confident cooks who nurture an ever-increasing repertoire of meals just waiting to leap off the grocery store shelves. Our school can help you on this journey from beginner through to advanced. There is a class for you.

our meals

A meal is a gift. Sometimes that gift is showy and extravagant but often it is a simple temporary pleasure. Meals come in all shapes and sizes. They may need to be quickly prepared, easy to cook, healthy or economical. One-size definitely does not ‘fit all’. Our meals are planned carefully to match your expectations. They are created to offer you a flexible and adaptable starting point, giving you the option to ‘pimp-up’ your menu or dress it down. Seasonality, budget, ease and time are all factors that make our meals fit your needs.

streetfood all summer long

Happy New Year and welcome to Summer 2022!

Despite Jagger and Bowie trying to convince us that “Summer’s here and the time is right, for dancing in the street” we believe it’s far too hot for dancing and the same goes for spending hours on end in the kitchen when we would rather be on the beach! So this summer we are celebrating what the ‘street’ does has to offer by way of tasty quick snacks. Throughout the season we will be cooking up sensational street food from around the globe. These roadside dishes are quick to prepare, flavourful and often easy to master.

There’s a portable morsel to suit everyone’s taste so come on, lets get travelling!
