The Kitchen Table

Welcome to The Kitchen Table, where all good stories start, and the magic of food comes to life!

At The Kitchen Table, we believe that the heart of any home lies in the kitchen. It’s the place where families and friends come together to share stories, laughter, and create lasting memories. Our mission during Camp Creative is to provide a gathering place where the joy of food is amplified through shared experiences.

Whether you’re a seasoned cook or a curious beginner, we invite you to join us at The Kitchen Table to open your hearts, be inspired, and forge connections through our shared love of food. Immerse yourself in our classes, where together we’ll prepare a collection of delicious dishes from Middle Eastern Lamb, Asian Street Food, Vegetarian, Dumplings, and the ultimate Fried Chicken. And the best part? We’ll enjoy these incredible dishes at the end of each day!

As we gather around The Kitchen Table, we encourage you to bring your own stories, experiences, and influences. We will add these moments to the recipe booklet for you to take home.

So, let’s come together at The Kitchen Table, embark on a week-long celebration of good food, storytelling, the love of cooking and where everything tastes better when shared.

Happy Camper Reviews

Mel Prince

Food has an incredible power to connect people, and for me, it’s more than just a passion – it’s how I express and communicate love.

I started with pop-up food concepts at music festivals whilst still working in the corporate world, became the owner of several cafes, collaborated with talented chefs, consulted on menus, and put down the pans to start a blog whilst living in Bali.

The blog evolved into a meal delivery and catering business called pink salt + chilli. Join me as I take simple, fresh ingredients and transform them into everyday dishes bursting with flavour. With a dash of fun, a sprinkle of pink salt, a hint of chili (okay, maybe more than a hint in my case), and always enjoying a glass of rosé along the way.

Together, let’s embark on a culinary adventure where we explore flavours, create memorable dishes, and celebrate the love and connection that food brings into our lives.
