Te’a Crocombe was inspired by her mother Anna to create and make delicious treats, tasty sauces, and scrumptious dishes. With her mother’s help, Te’a has taken her personal experience of cooking and creating dishes to the next level – to start up her own small business called Mom’s Kitchen. Te’a says “I’ve grown up doing everything in my mother’s kitchen”. Being in her mother’s kitchen taught her how to make all the food she enjoyed eating while living in Tahiti. Te’a’s family is from Tahiti and Bora Bora as well.
During Covid-19, Te’a decided to think up of ideas to earn an income. At the time, the market was full of Sashimi Platters, it made sense to change her focus to tasty sauces. She also took advantage of the fish prices and made her own Tahitian-styled Sashimi Sauce. It was a start of a new thing. Families could buy their fish to eat and purchase Te’a’s delicious sauces. To add to the sauces, Te’a’s mother suggested another favourite; Fish Pate, Grazing Platters and Mitihue (a popular Tahitian version of coconut sauce) to the list. Mitihue takes longer to prepare but the end product is well worth the wait.
Te’a personalises the food she makes and each platter is different. She even makes her own crackers. Today, you can purchase Mom’s Kitchen delicious sauces in stores around Rarotonga.
