Foodie heaven

Kaikōura is steadily becoming the place to visit this season particularly for those who plan all their travel around food. And let’s be honest who doesn’t!

The newest foodie adventure is the brainchild of Ex NZ Masterchef finalist and renowned Chef Fiona Read and her husband Chris. They recently launched their cooking school, Hāpuku Kitchen in stunning Kaikōura, focusing on getting people to reconnect to the kitchen and celebrating the abundant larder
of natural produce sourced from the wild Kaikōura coast.

Based in their home and specially designed kitchen, they are promising culinary adventures that celebrate the season. They enable guests to have a hands-on experience, foraging in the garden for fruit and vegetables, collecting the eggs and feeding the cows and pigs all before going back into the kitchen to learn the tricks and techniques in the creation of the dishes that day.

Their cooking classes are small and hands-on which enables them to host and provide guidance to each and every guest. These culinary experiences are for cooks of all levels.

To finish your culinary day, simply relax and enjoy the feast accompanied by wonderful wine or beer from amazing local producers.

As a memento of your time at Hāpuku Kitchen, you’ll leave with a recipe booklet and a Hāpuku Kitchen apron – but most important of all, a connection to Fiona and Chris, their home and the Kaikōura landscape. This is truly a foodies’ getaway.
