Colline is behind Colline’s Kitchen, that aims to be the go-to place for healthy and sustainable food. She is a loving mother, wife, and accountant, who is bringing her passion of cooking for her family and friends to Newbury.
Colline is lucky enough to call Newbury and Zimbabwe home, having spent an equal amount of her life in both places. Son she aims to support local suppliers and small businesses from both places.
“I aim to provide wholesome home-cooked food that doesn’t compromise on flavour”
Each dish is made with love and care, so please let us know if you have any allergies and we will always try and accommodate you.
Colline’s Kitchen offers a variety of homemade food and baked goods served with a smile, made from locally sourced ingredients where possible.
We source our fruit and veg from Karen, a greengrocer who has been supplying fruit and vegetables in Berkshire and Hampshire for over 15 years. Karen can be found at Newbury Market on Thursdays and Saturdays, so we get all the produce from her fresh each morning.
All the quiches in the cafe are made by Rhona from Thyme. Rhona offers a catering service and provides freshly made nutritious food for busy people. She has different menus available for different occasions. She can fill your freezer, provide you with canapés or dinner party food, lunches, and many more private catering events.
Our salads when we don’t make them are made by our good friend Nick from Food By Hope. Nick is a private chef who likes to grow his own fruit and vegetables that he incorporates in the food he makes.
As a mother, I am concerned about the environmental impact of our actions – that’s why I want to make a difference in as many ways as possible. Colline’s Kitchen is all about food to nurture your body and mind, but in a way that has as small an environmental impact as possible, while helping to make the world a better place.
As a small start-up and at the beginning of our journey, I am still exploring different ways to make the kitchen sustainable and have by no means found the secret formula. Having said this, I want to be as transparent as possible with you and want to keep an open dialog with my customers on this topic – to share ideas and take recommendations on board. So please feel free to get in touch with me – I’d love to hear from you.
