Bula Whanau

My name is Marama and I am Fijian.

I am married to a lovely man and we have four beautiful children.

I have been a qualified chef for over 10 years and have worked in several cafes, plus Wellington City New World as the Deli Head Chef and in the Icon Kitchen at Te Papa Museum.

I love cooking fresh yummy seasonal dishes. It is a huge bonus that I can work as the chef in the centre and at the same time, watch my two-year-old grow and learn at Childhood Concepts Early Learning Centre. As a parent it is very important that I encourage healthy eating and I hope to pass on this life skill to our tamariki.
