Coriander Lime Kitchen

Coriander Lime Kitchen is a cook school that offers cooking classes for adults as well as children.

We are absolutely thrilled and proud to be launching the only Asian cook school in beautiful Taupo.  Coriander Lime Kitchen is the brain child of Katherine Froggatt-Ong and the culmination of her life’s passion to work with food.

As a mother of two young children, she's a firm believer in the adage “you are what you eat” and the benefits of a nutritious diet for a growing child and the whole family.

Coriander Lime Kitchen offers weekly group classes and is also available for private lessons as well as small private events.


Our classes take you on a special culinary journey of flavours from Asia with special focus on Chinese, Malay, Indian and Peranakan cuisine featuring signature dishes from Singapore such as Hainanese chicken rice, laksa and mince pork noodles, to name a few.  


At Coriander Lime Kitchen we believe it is important to start inspiring children with food and teach them about healthy eating. Little Cooks classes run during school holidays and cater to children aged 4 to 14 years old.


Private lessons (one-on-one or small groups) are available. Classes start from $110 per person which includes raw ingredients, cooking, tasting, recipes and a Special Coriander Lime Kitchen Asian Cooking Survival Pack.
