If it’s true that the kitchen is the heart of ev­ery home, peo­ple tak­ing part in Dis­cov­ery Kinder­garten’s up­com­ing fundraiser should ex­pect a fan­ci­ful flut­ter.

Ten mod­ern and tra­di­tional kitchens in Whitby and Pau­ata­hanui homes will be open to view for the kinder­garten’s Dis­cover 10 Kitchen Tour on Oc­to­ber 17.

The event, spon­sored by Kitchen El­e­ments Porirua, of­fers a self­guided tour, pep­pered by demon­stra­tions and at­trac­tions.

At one home, Lo­gan Brown chef Kris­tan Mulc­ahy will pre­pare two of his sig­na­ture dishes. At an­other, Cup­cakes bak­ery will be teach­ing the art of bak­ing and dec­o­rat­ing their mini marvels, while The Breeze break­fast DJ Steve Joll will cook dishes from his new recipe book.

There will also be tast­ings, talks on kitchen de­sign, flo­ral art, el­e­gant ta­ble set­tings, kitchen­ware sales, Ha­vana cof­fee and raf­fles.

Or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee mem­ber Su­san Bur­ton-Welsh says the day will be ‘‘in­for­ma­tive as well as fun’’.

‘‘It’s a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to get ideas if you are think­ing of do­ing a kitchen ren­o­va­tion or are build­ing a new home in the fu­ture.

‘‘The money we raise from this will not only ben­e­fit our chil­dren and their ed­u­ca­tion to­day, it will be for chil­dren five years, 10 years down the track.’’

All pro­ceeds will go into much­needed ren­o­va­tion work at the kinder­garten.

The tour, which will run from 11am till 3pm, is the first of its kind in the area.

Tick­ets are $25, avail­able from Kitchen El­e­ments, Lewis’s Cur­tains Kenepuru Dr, Tommy’s Real Es­tate Mana, Cut n Curl Whitby, Ha­vana Cof­fee Works in Welling­ton, and on the day, 10am till 11am, from the kinder­garten.
