Wholesome, sustainable, extraordinary food
What began as a simple passion for real food and a desire to feed our children better has grown into Adre’s Kitchen. We loathe fussy and unnatural food and we strive to create food that tastes fantastic but so happens to be good for you too. Our team are passionate about ingredients and we are constantly tweaking, testing and developing recipes, it’s fair to say we are obsessed with food.
Head Chef and Founder – Adré King
My love affair with food started a long time ago, I am fortunate enough to have a mom who is not only a fantastic cook but have the same love for food as I do. To me, everything is about food! Moving back from the UK (after a 15 year stint) and trained as a chef at Leiths London, I was eager to start my own food business. I was shocked to see how unregulated South Africa is in terms of farming ethics and the prevalence of preservatives and other additives in our food. I started cooking healthy ready meals for private clients and thus Adre’s Kitchen was born.
On a personal level, I have always supported an organic lifestyle and have always supported a weekly vegetable box scheme, trying to avoid fresh produce form supermarkets which is often not fresh and full of chemicals.
Vegetables have always been at the centre of what I eat and how I choose to eat. I switched to a plant based diet for a year in 2017 before starting to introduce some animal protein back into my diet in the form of dairy & eggs. It is my mission this year to put vegetables in the limelight rather than a substitute for meat.
Welcome to the magic of good for you food
