Kakano’s goal is to bring healthy and nutritious kai to the people of Otautahi. They want to celebrate the whenua /land, culture, education opportunities, community and most importantly whanau/family. Kakano believes food can heal, and sharing it together can heal us as a community.
The cookery school is located within the café and is transformed in the evenings and weekends to cater for basic to skilled cooking abilities. Kakano also runs seminars, workshops, reo lessons, and hosts guests to showcase what our community has to offer. Kakano celebrates our natural world and who we are in it.
