What's at the Heart of Good Gracious High Tea?

Absolute aroha! Good Gracious High Tea is a way for me to express my love through amazing food and gathering people together to enjoy local, seasonal produce, to celebrate life and of course have lots of fun!  


I’m a professionally trained chef who has travelled the world working in fine dining restaurants to film set catering and without doubt my greatest joy is seeing people love my food and enjoying each other’s company. 

"Seeing a mum and daughter catch up over a cup of tea, sharing a sweet treat or a savoury bite, or catering for a corporate event that has lashings of heart, soul, and of course the wow factor thrown in is a genuine thrill for me."

Had a superb high tea for a Sisters hens night last week. I'm gluten intolerant and they provided some excellent finger food for myself! I could join in and eat with everyone else! Thank you Good Gracious for making me feel like a normie.
