Welcome Huw!


If you are looking to study the New Zealand Certificate in Cookery and have a few questions, chances are you will speak with Huw. Here’s an introduction to our latest team member, welcome Huw Taylor!

I’m officially a migrant, but after 26 years living in New Zealand, I’m almost a Kiwi?

I have travelled extensively throughout Europe particularly, and love eating regional cuisine’s, and also cooking them at home. The Māori influence on New Zealand dining is particularly exciting, and is something I’m learning more about currently. Having two young daughters who are also excited by food and cooking is pretty cool too!  My professional background has involved Sales and Marketing for a variety of companies. I’m also involved in my own business, supplying niche meats to the restaurant trade.

Good food makes me smile, as does seeing students from all walks of life, and all life stages discover online study as an achievable way of making their own food dreams happen!
