About Amy

My interest in food didn’t really start until university and although I had always loved baking, I was no child Masterchef.  At uni I discovered farmers markets, Annabel Langbein and the challenge (which I loved) of creating delicious and relatively healthy meals with small student budgets.  As a people pleaser though, nothing bought me more pleasure than making others feel special through my food.

‘It may look like I am deep in thought, but 99% of the time I’m just thinking about what I am going to eat later.’ 

I started my working career in the corporate world but soon started doing some catering on the side.  I loved the creative and practical nature of cooking and putting together food and when, Le Cordon Bleu opened a campus in Wellington, I decided to enrol and see if I could begin to make a career out of my love for food.  Over the last few years I have been working as a chef on super yachts, where I had endless opportunities to experiment, cook with some pretty cool ingredients and draw inspiration from local markets, family run restaurants and other amazing chefs.  I have recently returned home to realise my dream of starting my own food business.

My food philosophy is simple.  I like to create food that is fresh, vibrant, colourful and relatively uncomplicated from local and seasonal ingredients.  I believe that butter and cream have a place in cooking and a sweet treat now and again is fine but I steer clear of processed foods and for the most part my food is very healthy.
