Overview

Nikau Cafe Cookbook

Nikau has a special place in people's hearts. Run by Kelda Hains and Paul Schrader, the café has been open for almost two decades, serving only breakfast and lunch.

 

This decision has forged a unique point of view. Both Kelda and Paul are dedicated to the notion of simple things done well. Meticulous, unpretentious service is matched by reliably delicious food, a philosophy that has seen Nikau gain a following far beyond Wellington.

 

Nikau the cookbook documents many of the Café's classic dishes.

 

Kelda's food is informed by her love of gardening and produce – seasonal cooking is at the heart of every dish. Each chapter is named for a dish served at Nikau, with variations and accompanying recipes that allow the home cook to build their own menus.

 

“I wanted to show how I think about ingredients and how I decide what to cook. Essentially, I am produce led... and once you have that freshness, it's about not fiddling with your produce, just standing back and letting it shine.”

 

Douglas Johns' superb photography offers a glimpse of the moods and daily rhythms of a busy cafe. This is a beautiful book that shares the wisdom and work developed over twenty years in an innovative and much-loved Wellington kitchen.

FAQ's

Q: I’ve seen a product in store but can’t find it on your website. How can I order it?

 

If there's something you are after that isn't yet available here on our website, contact us and we'll see what we can do. If it’s something we have in stock and can send by courier, we will do our very best to make it available on our website.

 

Q: Why is there a minimum order quantity for some products?

 

Some of our products – such as beer and grocery items – can be bought individually in store, but we can only courier them in set quantities (such as boxes, cases or cartons). It is often quite a lot cheaper to buy in these quantities, which is why we show both the individual and bulk prices on the product pages. It’s always nice to know what you’re saving!
