With a lust for travel she’s home based right now and we are thrilled to be hosting this true food rock star before the gates out of NZ open wide and she flies off again.

After leaving school Katie set out on a huge adventure to explore the world working in schools, retreats, hostels, and cafes. Her experiences in a diverse range of kitchens creating and exploring led her to totally fall in love with the whole concept of food.

Katie has now worked around the world as a chef in cafes and restaurants as well as at festivals and on retreats. In addition she has been operated a plant-based/raw food business in New Zealand.

Katie is currently completing her studies in #nutritionaltherapy with the Nutritional Therapy Association. Watch this space. This gorgeous legend is excited to combine her knowledge of plant-based culinary with nutrition in her own inspired way.

Katie’s food is a true artist in plant based food. She truly believes that food is our medicine and is diligent in her pursuit of providing this to those lucky enough to enjoy her talents. From sourcing the finest local organic ingredients to a systematic, peace and love filled approach to cooking. She serves food that is full of flavour, textures and packed with goodness into a visual feast for the eyes and a precious gift to the body.
