Te Wahi Ora Cookbook

Was there a dish you tried at Te Wahi Ora that you particularly liked?  A collection of these favourite recipes has been compiled and published into our first ever Te Wahi Ora Cookbook.

All proceeds from cookbook sales go to our Charitable Trust and helps us help other women.

The quote below is a favourite and so beautifully puts into words our belief in the importance of good food and shared meals.

“To love good food is a measure of our love of life. Food preparation teaches us to do everything we can to make life palatable, spicy, comforting, and full of love. To be ‘feasted’ is to be loved outrageously. Feasting is a divine imperative!” by Peace Activist, Sister Joan Chittister

Te Wahi Ora’s team of workers, after 21 years, are still offering three daily nourishing, comforting meals full of love. Now we offer the recipes that Te Wahi Ora has used over the past decades to inspire you to love those at home – yourself, your family and friends – by ‘feasting’ them into an awareness of being loved and to encourage the day by day preparation of food to remind you of your love of life and of self!


The Te Wahi Ora Cookbook’s are $20.00 each

$20.00 plus $4.00 postage (within New Zealand) if you would like it posted to you.
