Eat, drink and be merry – it’s the recipe for life, right? So why not embrace this philosophy with some grown-up fun for your next party or event?


Kristie Seeger, chef, mum and owner of Cook House at Burleigh Heads shares her passion for food with custom party and event catering. After a trailblazing career including stints across Europe, running a restaurant in Cairns, a deli in Surfers Paradise and whipping up vegan delights at a Gold Coast restaurant, Kristie has followed her true calling with Cook House, offering cooking classes for kids and adults, private parties and the just launched Sunday sessions where kids get hands-on in the kitchen every week.


Looking for a unique party venue? Cook House serves up quality dining in an intimate space. Catering for a maximum of 30 guests in the private dining room, Kristie says clients can choose their theme – from degustation to three-course meal to cocktail party and more – with customised invitations and menus included in the party package.


Her open kitchen is also the perfect space for a group cooking class or presentation-style ‘event dinner’ where Kristie cooks as you watch, and then you get to enjoy the spoils of her craft. With a wide range of cuisines to choose from, you can really let your imagination – and your appetite – run wild.


Perfect for a milestone birthday, a hen’s night, girls’ night out or perhaps even a small teambuilding function, this is some mouth watering fun. And kids’ birthday parties are a smash-hit too!


A chef for more than 20 years, Kristie says she was inspired to start Cook House, “to create something that could express my passion for food and share it with other people”.


Her recent school holiday program of daily workshops for kids was booked out, with interest driving future plans for additional holiday programs and the new weekly cooking classes for kids which commence this weekend.
