Whole Food Simply


I’m Simone and I run Taranaki’s first and only plant based catering company and cookery school. I’m passionate about using quality, organic ingredients to create beautiful food; connecting with people and inspiring you to try plant based foods!

 Whole foods are foods which haven’t been processed; the whole apple, the bean or grain. Plant based means food which comes from plants and not animals, so no meat, dairy, honey or eggs. Eating WFPB also avoids oils and refined sugars.

Chef, Teacher, Speaker of whole plant-based foods

I am a chef, teacher, influencer and speaker. Food is a necessity, food is nourishing and food brings people together. Simone’s Plant Based Kitchen brings a healthy, fun and inspiring perspective to your function, event and workplace. 

My aim is to inspire you to incorporate more plant based foods into your everyday life. I’ll show you that cooking with plants is exciting and delicious. For those with allergies and specific dietary requirements like me, my mission is to ensure you get to eat delicious food too!

Customers Experience

Simone did the catering for a Women’s Networking Event this week for us. She was an absolute pleasure to work with & the food was divine! Delicious, creative & something different from the usual – we will certainly be using Simone again!


Simone has some great ideas and awesome recipes. This was especially good for me as I am dairy free at the moment while I’m breastfeeding. The classes are fun and Simone is very welcoming and has a wealth of knowledge

Fiona – Home Demo Customer

Our family has food allergies and still eat meat but were looking for alternatives to try. Simone was friendly, helpful and non judgmental and shared other ideas or substitutes we could try. A great and very helpful 3 hours thank you Simone
