Jane Rangiwahia

Meet Jane Rangiwahia, Chef and Author!

In the bustling Social Cooking kitchen, there's a chef who's not just helping our teams cook up delicious meals but also serving a generous helping of community spirit and literary charm.

Meet Jane Rangiwahia – a culinary crusader, community builder, and now, a published author along with her brother, the talented artist Paul Rangiwahia. Their delightful collaboration, "Kai and Kindness," adds a sprinkle of magic to Jane's already vibrant repertoire.

Jane's culinary adventures aren't just about food – they're about bringing people together. With her spatula in hand and a smile on her face, she orchestrates experiences that are as much about laughter and connection as they are about tasty treats. Mixing traditional Māori flavors with modern flair, Jane's dishes are a celebration of diversity and a testament to her multicultural heritage.

But Jane's talents don't stop at the stove. Alongside her brother Paul, she's penned "Kai and Kindness," a heartwarming book that's as sweet as one of her desserts. Through a collection of delicious recipes and beautiful art works, Jane and Paul serve up valuable lessons about empathy, generosity, and the power of a shared meal.

With its vibrant illustrations and charming storytelling, "Kai and Kindness" isn't just a book – it's a recipe for spreading love and joy.

In a world that sometimes feels a little too serious, Jane Rangiwahia's lighthearted approach to cooking, community building, and storytelling is a breath of fresh air. So next time you're craving a taste of something special, why not whip up a dish from one of Jane's recipes or dive into the pages of "Kai and Kindness"? You'll not only satisfy your hunger but also feed your soul with a generous serving of kindness and connection.
