” IF YOU MAKE EVERY DISH
WITH LOVE, THOSE WHO
EAT IT WILL KNOW “
It was Mum (the Taylor) who, from my earliest memories, instilled in me the the principle beliefs that really delicious only comes from fresh, quality, nutritious and local ingredients. And that the most important ingredient is the type of care that only comes from love.
My Father (the Holmes) Taught me the absolute joy of wonderful food and its role in our lives beyond sustenance. Our company name is also a loving nod to our children, who carry as their middle names, Taylor (Victoria) and Holmes (Henry).
For us, food is the magnet which draws our family to the table. And it is then that the fun, memories and love becomes very apparent, in the form of opinions, thoughts, ideas, plans, laughs, tears, wine and the incredible wonder of life. I think about that every time I design a catering menu.
The starting point for every occasion, every client, every single job, every time is always this belief: it is what the food served says about the relationship between the host and the guest that is all powerful and memorable.
To ensure a delightful experience for both parties, I always adhere to these lasting, timeless truths that apply to wonderful food preparation: always absolutely fresh; the highest quality; as local as can be; clean and balanced; generous flavours and this above all else: made with care, love and respect – a love of great food and respect for the important role it plays for our clients and their guests. I ensure our food honours people. That’s our pleasure. And because I’m always thinking about food I never forget its importance.”
