A Note From Rachelle – Owner
Growing up here in Central Otago, food has been at the heart of my family since forever and I guess you could say it’s in the blood. I was bought up with a wonderful “stay at home mum” who taught me with patience and understanding the simple and traditional way to cook and bake.
We had the most amazing floral and vegetable garden – and still do – which provides some of the ingredients we use to create our incredible food experiences here at The Platter Share. I started my foodie career by making jams, pickles & cakes then turned it into a lucrative business selling them down by our mailbox. I am proud to say that my cooking and entrepreneurial skills have come a long way, since then, but we still use some of those classic recipes in our kitchen today. ‘Just make it from scratch’ has always been my moto.
I originally trained in pastry and was a baker in a cake shop in Queenstown before traveling the world in my twenty’s, learning and developing my passion for food, art and food styling.
In my heart, I always knew my travels would lead me back home again and it seemed natural that I returned to Central Otago when I was pregnant with my daughter in 2017 and while on maternity leave The Platter Share was also born.
Working together with my small passionate team and with the addition of our beautiful custom built mobile kitchen, we have been able to create a catering company that is unique and diverse and allows us to provide amazing one-of-a-kind culinary experiences.
You’ll find me most at home in my kitchen, or out exploring this beautiful area with my family. It is such a pleasure to share something I love to do, somewhere I love to live.
