Coriander Lime Kitchen offering Asian cooking classes in Taupo.

Coriander Lime Kitchen is a cook school that offers cooking classes for adults and children in beautiful Taupo featuring flavours from Asia . 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.

We offer cooking classes by private booking with the option to create a menu that will suit you and your group.  We can also organise small private events with cooking demonstrations or hands-on classes.

Girls' weekends, Special family holidays and birthday celebrations have been just a few of the most popular customised events we have organised for our clients.

Cooking Classes

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.  Classes are mostly demonstration and are currently by private booking only.  Please contact us for more information.

Little Cooks

At Coriander Lime Kitchen we believe it is important to start inspiring children with food and teach them about healthy eating.  Our founder Katherine has two kids and understands the importance of honing their cooking skills so that they learn to appreciate and love food as much as she does.  Little Cooks was created with this in mind, inviting parents and kids to join her for a fun and educational time.  Little Cooks classes are currently running by private booking only.  Please contact us for more information. We cater to children aged 4 to 14 years old.

Private Lessons

Private lessons (one-on-one or small groups) are available to those who prefer to have us teach you in your own home.  Katherine can take you through the essential ingredients and equipment you need for Asian cooking.  Classes start from $85 per person which includes raw ingredients, cooking, tasting & recipes.


Coriander Lime Kitchen is launching some packages for you all travelling over the weekends to beautiful Taupō.

Stay tuned....more details to come!
