I love to think of myself as “The Original Spice Girl”! Born into a family who’s love language can best be described as “food”, it was only natural that when we moved to Aotearoa in 2002, I set about re-creating those wonderful flavours I grew up with. Though I definitely can’t bend it like Beckham, I would like to think I have perfected the important skill of making fabulously round rotis!
I love food, people and stories (not necessarily in that order) and am happiest with all of these in one room. To satisfy my love for spice and passion for saving the world from below-average curry, I started the process of de-mystifying Indian food.
Dealing with my own wheat allergies and my husband’s auto-immune conditions, our family has over the years been making the transition to clean eating – no packets or jars, seasonal and locally grown fruit & vegetables, made from scratch “real food”. We like to know where our food comes from and we like to support our local suppliers.
I am beyond excited to take you on an epic journey sharing our stories, our home, our kitchen experiments (some more successful than others!), family recipes handed down as well as my own recipes.
Our cooking classes typically run for 3 hours – A demonstration, followed by you cooking your own meal with all ingredients provided. Beautifully designed recipe booklets to take back.
Being hands on our cooking classes are a great, fun idea for team building experiences and end of year “parties”. And there other events… think birthdays, anniversaries, hen’s nights & kitchen teas, family get togethers… where you get to spend time doing something special together.
We also host fund raising events and love to support your work. Get in touch with us for a customised option.We also regularly partner with other local foodies for regular experiences that extend beyond curry. Keep in touch with us for more regular updates.
Do join us for a meal. Or just drop a line to say hello. We’d love to hear from you and be a part of your story.
