After setting up and running popular cafe Alimento for eight years the pair sold it to focus on their growing family of four and their rural lifestyle. More than five years on they have returned to their passion for great food with Hereford Kitchen which is already delighting couples with mouth-watering wedding catering.
Catherine's passion for food was inspired by her grandmothers' talents in the kitchen and had begun cooking impressive meals at home from the age of eight.
Building on their interest and inspiration from multicultural Melbourne, where they lived for five years, they returned to Tauranga in 2000 to setup Alimento which quickly earned a reputation for inspired salads and assorted treats with great service. It's a recipe they are adding to at Hereford Kitchen.
