Divine private chef service – Lodge Lorien

The Divine Private chef service takes me to some of the most outstanding homes, luxury lodges and locations throughout Central Otago and the South of New Zealand. This is where I can go wild and curate exquisite epicurean experiences for lovers of fine food often matched with the exceptional wines.

My joy is in the experience of cooking and serving luscious feasts and degustion’s in beautifully thought out kitchens with everything at your fingertips. My clients are always so appreciative and I love knowing they are dining on Divine goodness with postcard views of our beautiful country. I continuously pinch myself!

Lodge Lorien Glenorchy is certainly one of those dream holiday destinations, nestled high up in a magical setting overlooking Lake Wakatipu. I was excited to be asked to provide the Divine private chef service for the former editor of the Australian Financial review last month and showcase New Zealand’s finest cuisine. Lorien is immaculate with utter luxury and attention to detail everywhere you look. It was such a pleasure to work in this stunning lodge.

Dinner with a view. Feasting on the finest while watching the Southern skies change is simply magnificent.


At a Divine dish, all provisions are carefully hand selected from our local suppliers and dishes are created from scratch with love, this is always evident in the final plate that is served.  If you would like to have a memorable dining experience, get in touch. Contact Jo at
