Since being established in 2009, Cook and Butler Cuisine, the Auckland catering company has built a reputation for excellence in food variety, food presentation, pricing, and a passion
for cuisine that will make any catered event perfect.
Nick Little – Experience, class and a passion for food
Prior to establishing Cook and Butler Cuisine, Nick, a fully qualified chef, spent six years as Executive Chef for one of New Zealand’s leading hospitality event management companies. In this role he found himself catering for a variety of VIP functions including The America’s Cup farewell dinner and The Halberg Awards, and overseeing private dinner parties for some of New Zealand’s best known celebrities.
Previous to this, Nick worked in the United Kingdom, initially in the kitchen of Ian Schrager’s designer hotel, Asia de Cuba, London. He then secured a position working alongside world-renowned chef, Tetsuya Wadaki. For four years running, Wadaki’s restaurant was voted one of the top 10 restaurants in the world.
A love of New Zealand and a deep desire to present Auckland events with international- standard cuisine led Nick to establish Cook and Butler Cuisine. The culinary skills he will bring to your catered event have been honed while working in five-star hotels, world class restaurants, alongside Michelin star chefs and cooking for royalty and A-list celebrities.
“Travelling the world has inspired me to inject different international flavours into the food I prepare, meaning it’s packed full of intensity and creativity. Cook and Butler focuses on creating gourmet food that celebrates life and captivates the palette.
“With Auckland now my home, and with Cook and Butler Cuisine being the platform for my culinary passion, I am pleased to be able to bring my love of fine catering to your corporate function, private dining, unique celebration event or exquisite wedding.”
