At iluma, we are quite simply passionate about beautiful food.
iluma Fine Foods was founded with the goal of creating food that is luxurious, unique and creative. For us, the act of creating our food is a joyful experience , it is exciting and fast paced and it is our creative outlet, the medium through which we like to think we contribute a little beauty to the world.
We started with decadent desserts and we are now proud to add a luxurious range of savoury grazing boxes and catering options to our offering which can be conveniently collected from our store in the heart of West Leederville. Looking for a wedding cake, please look at some examples of our work on our Wedding page.
We are lucky to have a diverse team of talented pastry chefs, chefs, cooks and cake artists hailing from all over the world bring with them a wealth of culinary, creative and technical expertise; which, combined with our love of the finest ingredients is the perfect recipe for a luxurious culinary experience for our customers.
We are blissfully happy when we are exploring culinary destinations, testing new and exciting ingredients, pouring over endless volumes of recipe books and marvelling at the awe-inspiring internationally acclaimed chefs who dominate our social media feeds. We even look to movies for inspiration; many an in depth discussion has been had regarding Chocolat, Marie Antoinette, The Waitress, Like Water for Chocolate and even Ratatouille to name but a few. In short, we find inspiration everywhere.
Constantly changing and ever evolving, we love melding flavour profiles and techniques from ancient traditions with modern culinary techniques to create something that is uniquely iluma . We like to think of our style as fluid, playful and luxurious. We aren't tied to one geographical region for our flavour influences, instead, we go where the inspiration takes us and use skill, creative techniques and fine ingredients to provide a luxurious ribbon of consistency through our creations.
Our mission is to Feed the Fire that burns inside every woman. We reinvest part of our profits into initiatives to support talented young women in the communities we serve in the area of arts, music, food and other creative industries. Read more here.
