Jude Keremea

Jude Kereama was born and raised in New Zealand where he honed his skills in the kitchen with Simon Gault, before travelling to the UK where he met his wife Jane. Searching for a restaurant in the UK, they settled in Porthleven and opened Kota in 2006, before launching Kota Kai in 2011.

Kota, meaning ‘shellfish’ in Maori, (chef Jude is half Maori, half Chinese Malay) and Kota Kai are stalwarts of the Cornish food scene and bring together the eclectic flavours of Jude’s heritage to create menus utilising the best of local produce with his signature Asian twist.

Jude earned the Trencherman's Award for 'Special Contribution' in 2020 and was named 'Chef of The Year' in 2019. Kota is proud to be recognised by the Good Food Guide, the Michelin Guide with a prestigious Bib Gourmand Award and the AA (with three Rosettes). Kota is one of only five restaurants in Cornwall to have been awarded 3 Rosettes.
