Experience the art of food

Welcome to Paint on a Plate! An innovative blend of culinary creativity and social connection where you can explore your artistic flair in the kitchen.

At Paint on a Plate, you're not just creating delicious food—you're creating edible art, and making connections along the way.

Create a feast for both the eyes and the palate

At Paint on a Plate, your ingredients become your colour palette, the kitchen your studio and the dish becomes your masterpiece. With access to a fully stocked pantry, you'll create and savour dishes that are a feast for both the eyes and the palate. 

It's an experience that transcends traditional cooking and dining, taking you on an explorative journey through taste, texture, and colour.
