Sonja’s Taste of Austria, creates delicious sweet desserts and gourmet frozen meals inspired by Austria, homemade from local, fresh New Zealand produce.
Sonja’s passion for baking and cooking started from a very young age of 6 years old, where mud cakes garnished with daisies and dandelions were her expertise.
Her cooking and baking talents emerged over the years whilst growing a love for different cultures and their cuisines.
After her mother passed down her old Austrian cook books, a passion for the Austrian way of cooking and its’ cuisine became her love, a much indulged in hobby, in which she could relax, unwind and express herself and of-course hold some extreme dinner parties for her friends!
With Austrian inspiration behind her and fresh New Zealand produce at her fingertips, she lovingly creates beautiful sweet desserts that delight, and frozen gourmet meals that will satisfy anyone's appetite.
You will find Sonja at the Parnell Farmers market on a Saturday morning stocked up with the most divine treats and meals.
Although Sonja lives slightly out of Auckland, Sonja still adores Auckland “because it is vibrant and diverse”.
Since coming to live here, she has watched New Zealand evolve “from a place of plain simple food to a foodies paradise”.
“Farmers markets are the best showroom for all the wonderful products that are created”.
She loves to eat out at Yum Cha Pearl Gardens in Newmarket, and also enjoys Aucklands waterfront with its “abundance of great places to eat” and its stunning scenery.
Her most favourite place to eat however, is right at home, where she and her husband experiment with all the wonderful products found right here in New Zealand.
