Somewhere was originally established in 1971,

in the South Pacific.


Located on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island, it was a property (and a kitchen) of rolling sandstone hills, of native forest, and a fresh-water spring, with wild rambling watercress and a soft, salty sea air. The land that had been home to four generations of the Bain family, and it was a place that believed in the spirit of exploration: of travel, of summer’s first salt-water swim, sailing, surfing, seeking mountain tops and sleeping under the stars.

Somewhere was conceived, created and built on the saddle one these sandstone ridgelines and hosted an open-plan and open-door kitchen that believed the beauty of the place, should be matched by the beauty on the plate. Somewhere’s kitchen was designed on a set of core principles to live life by. These were:

Share      share quality food

Seek         seek adventure

Learn      learn from the masters

Live         live lightly on the land


Today, Somewhere Kitchen continues to follow these same guiding principles that were established almost 50 years ago, and through these food adventures, together we work to fight hunger and food security globally.
