Award winning Chef Grant Kitchen has launched an exciting new café and evening dining venture at Lake House Arts in Takapuna!

Grant is currently the Head Chef for the exclusive Number 5 restaurant, Le Chef in O’Connel St in the city and previously, Pinot Plus in Takapuna.

Grant also judges at culinary events around NZ , he is a member of the NZ Chefs Association and trains up and coming chefs and stewards to Class Winners at local and national culinary events.

As head chef of Le Chef, he won the Golden Knife Award 2016 Restaurant Month.

Grant’s motto for his cooking is “savour, service and simplicity”. He believes Lake House Arts is a great spot for a “café/restaurant themed around social dining, families and healthy and hearty food options”.  The café will also be able to cater for large groups, functions and conferences with several package options being developed along with Lake House venue management.

Lake House Trust is very excited about the new possibilities presented by Grant, his staff (and his delicious cooking!) and hope to welcome new and old visitors to the art centre in the coming months.
