Founded in 2013 by wellbeing-advocate Olivia Scott in growing demand for her outstanding handmade raw cakes, the word spread quickly and The Raw Kitchen started its journey!
Initially Olivia sold her raw cakes to private customers and hand selected Auckland cafes and then in 2014 launched a weekend stall at La Cigalle Market. In 2015 The Raw Kitchen opened its doors to its much anticipated original store on Auckland’s iconic Ponsonby Road, and 2016 saw the launch of Olivia’s much first anticipated book, The Raw Kitchen, and the opening of her now flagship store at City Works Depot.
At our City Works Depot store and kitchen, we offer an extensive range of raw breakfast cups, salads and wraps, snacks, sweet treats, nut mylks and retail products – all hand prepared fresh daily, as well as made to order smoothies and coffee by our team of amazingly passionate people.
A true believer in holistic wellness, Olivia is hugely passionate about the effect what we eat everyday has on our bodies – physiologically and psychologically, and our overall wellbeing. Olivia is a keen yogi, loves immersing herself in nature and all things natural, and has a passion for sharing her knowledge, energy and love with her community.
Olivia studied business and commerce at Victoria University in Wellington, before taking her passion for food and nutrition to Auckland where she studied nutrition at Wellpark College before immersing herself in The Raw Kitchen.
Olivia is a sought-after speaker at various wellness events and has written for and published recipes in several publications including as a contributing author of whole foods cookbook, ‘Whole’. Her first book, The Raw Kitchen, published by Beatnik Publishing was launched nationwide in April, 2016.
