Moxham's creative passion has a voracious appetite when it comes to gastronomy.

Her masterpieces use ingredients from her garden and locally sourced elements. Moena loves making all the basics from scratch herself ie: butter, bread, cheeses, chocolate, ice-cream, pastry and yoghurt; and takes delight in sharing her creations with family and friends. She's as happy sourcing goodies in heels and a gourmet deli as diving for paua and kina, foraging for herbs and veggies, using offal or fishing for Blue Cod. Seasonality plays a huge part in Moxham's cuisine and she cooks to her comforts.

"Buy local, make your basics and always buy the best quality you can afford". Her secret to great baking and fine kai?- "... eat what you crave & only ever cook with love." 

Moena delights in collecting and creating recipes which she diligently handwrites into her cooking books. At the bottom of the page are a selection of Moxham's favourites which she shares with you- click to enlarge.
