Kex is now my full time business!

Updated: Sep 23, 2018

Wahoo!! A dream come true!

This month has seen Kex Kitchen become my full time business and I am beyond excited!

I started Kex last year, by making cakes and cheese platters for friends and family while working full time as a chef at Olive Tree Cottage - a boutique wedding venue in Pyes Pa, Tauranga.

From my experience working as a chef in Sweden and growing my cafe there into being voted Sweden's most sustainable cafe and voted the 12th best cafe in Sweden - I thought if I could accomplish something over there, then surely I can do it here in NZ. So over this last year I have worked extremely hard, and this month it has all paid off as I can proudly say Kex Kitchen is now a full time catering company!

I have always loved feeding people and catering is my favourite way to do that. I love the process from the first enquiry, designing the perfect menu for the event, the prep, the production and finally the delivery and seeing the face of the client so happy and excited by my food.

Kex Kitchen now offers cheese platters, corporate catering, special event catering, cakes and grazing tables (I can't help myself being ridiculously busy!) I love using as much local produce from around Tauranga as I can whilst promoting healthy wholesome food.

I am so thankful to all my wonderful clients so far! And to my Olive Tree Cottage family for all the support and still letting me use the commercial kitchen there! Kex Kitchen is growing everyday, with plans to hire staff this summer and move into our own commercial kitchen, I am so excited to see what the future holds!

Thanks to everyone again who has been apart of the Kex journey so far :)
