Foodie Reviews

” This was the most amazing experience. The food was sooooo good I cannot even begin to describe in words as well as the flavours and the presentation. Sign me up for the next one!”

Kim Raubenheimer

“Kitchen Takeover made me feel like I was living in Melbourne, or Wellington or even New York. Like a glorious local secret, with the added advantage of getting to meet lovely, like-minded folks.”

Rosie Dawson Hewes

“This was an incredible taste sensation, perfect food, perfect setting and perfect company.  I can’t wait for the next one! Somehow i think it’s going to be tough to get a seat next time around.”
