Let us cater your next function in Taranaki

Delicious fresh local catering and sweet treats

Hello! And thanks for taking the time to visit.

I’m Meredith – but I’m mostly known by my friends as Mere. I’m head chef at The Sugar Shack, and your first point of contact when you call or email. I’m the lady that creates your food, and you’ll often find me somewhere down the end of the buffet line carving your glazed ham! It’s nice to meet you. Learn more about The Sugar Shack.
