Don't miss out on this wonderful culinary experience with a welcoming local! Originally from California, Kelila is an American who has been living in New Zealand for many years. She has been cooking, quite literally, her whole life, and can't actually remember when her love for food took root. As a kid Kelila was always in the kitchen helping her mother, who is a professional chef. Kelila, a professional chef herself, is currently completing her PhD in food studies. She has been classically trained through old-fashioned apprenticeship, and has now been teaching culinary arts for the past ten years. She enjoys working with local ingredients to create everything from classic Kiwiana to contemporary fare and prefers home-cooked styles; however her training offers a large repertoire to draw upon. Kelila love’s sharing her knowledge of food with others and believes there is no better way to connect to people than around the table!
Kelila can offer vegetarian and vegan meals on request.
