Owner, Founder and Creative Director, Latasha Menon’s passion for cooking delicious nutritious food with fresh ingredients herbs and spices it the inspiration behind the Latasha’s Kitchen story. Founded in 2013 by Latasha shortly after retiring from her popular restaurant and cooking school in Leederville, Perth.
Born in Malaysia, her family hailed from Southern India. Settling in Perth in 1994, Latasha realised that Australians were unfamiliar with the ingredients methods and styles she took for granted growing up in another culture.
“My cooking repertoire is strongly influenced by the distinctive traditions of food from both South Asia and Southeast Asia, with an extensive range of curry and masala pastes, condiments, relishes, dressings and dessert sauces,” said Latasha.
As a brand, Latasha’s Kitchen aims to provide a quick and cost effective short cut to cooking a meal at home, made with passion, love and generosity of flavour.
“I want to provide honest food, trusted and consistently high quality product, share the passion for good food and enable people to create great food memories with friends and family without the stress of cooking from scratch,” said Latasha.
All Latasha’s Kitchen products are certified Australian-made and crafted, using only the best local ingredients and imported top-quality dried herbs and spices. Most of the products are also naturally suitable for vegetarians, pescatarians, vegans and coeliacs.
