Where It All Started

Hi my name is Kathrine Lynch the founder of The Daily Menu, and I grew up on ‘good ol kiwi tucker’. I have shared several food challenges with the most notable being when I cooked 62 dinners for $100.

These challenges sparked a lot of interest and I have had several newspaper articles and television interviews on TVNZ Breakfast and Seven Sharp. This publicity has brought with it thousands of people asking for help to learn how to cook healthy, easy dinners on a budget.

This birthed The Daily Menu - a space where I can encourage more families to incorporate home-cooked meals into their daily routine. It is important to me that no matter what your level of cooking experience is, you will have the support you need to get some fantastic meals on the table. 

I’m excited to be able to share with you the food that I cook for my own family and to be able to educate and encourage more people to get into the kitchen.

– Founder, Kathrine Lynch.
