Our Story

      Wholesome    Sustainable   ExtraOrdinary Food

It all started with a bowl of Soup!

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.

Meet the team… (and their favourite tools)
