Hi all my name is Robyn Joynt and I am a lover of food, it is MY LIFE!

Brought up on a farm in the South Waikato, New Zealand. I have always been surrounded by an abundance of food that was homegrown had soul, flavour and passion which was driven with love and a welcoming heart.

Currently living in Canterbury, New Zealand.

Doing a degree in Culinary Arts has made me realize what I want in life and how it can be shown with the food I cook. I have a strong interest in food and ingredients which have a connection to people and place. I also have a strong connection to Soul Food because it is a large part of who I am and how I cook.

There are a few culinarians who I share similar food values with and gain inspiration from; Alison Lambert and Jamie Oliver are  are just a few of many.

Good food and drink creates a powerful connection with people, place, family, friends and makes a community. Food enlightens all senses and elevates the mood of many. To me food is more than an energy, FOOD IS LIFE and makes up a large part of community. People who collectively appreciate small things providing a unique well-rounded passionate, warming experience. Having a relationship that’s built on common ground which enables me to give something and gain plenty in return.

Building a community through food.
