Share Kai and Kōrero at The Stanmore Corner Project
We’re testing a new way of bringing people together over tasty food that showcases the rich cultural diversity of our city.

Come dine with people from all walks of life and share in the traditional and beloved cuisines of communities that call Ōtautahi home and that might be new to you.

Four groups of cooks from different ethnic backgrounds – Eritrea, Nepal, Afghanistan and Iran – have come together for as part of the Share Kai and Kōrero project. As part of the project these passionate cooks have been provided with a mentor from the hospitality sector, Ruth Trevella (owner of successful local catering business The Catering Belle and cafés Good Habit and Foundation Café), supported to understand New Zealand commercial food safety regulations and given tips for running small hospo businesses.

Share Kai and Kōrero has two aims: supporting passionate cooks from diverse communities to share their food and to provide opportunities to connect the communities of Ōtautahi with these cuisines in an environment that encourages connection between diners.

The first Share Kai and Kōrero events will be held in partnership with The Stanmore Corner Project at The Stanmore Yard and Commons, 97 Stanmore Road, a developing community space. Friday evenings 6 – 8pm during February and March 2023.
