We Are Taste and See
Hey Welcome to my family.
I’m Hope a 16 year old farm girl from Dargaville who loves horses, singing, music, photography and working with my family on exciting projects.
I would like to introduce one of my families exciting new projects, but first a little family history with food.
In 2006 we started and operated one of the first plant based cafes in New Zealand. People were a bit confused at first as we had pies, sausage rolls and ice cream that tasted so good but where plant based – how did that work?
It was our mission to make tasty, nutrient dense, healthy food and drinks that where affordable, and that the people coming thru our doors knew they where much more important than any money passed over for food.
In fact this is still our mission!!
Some of you reading this may have stopped at Taste and See in the castle at Mangatawhiri.
My Mum is a genius (she will cringe) in the kitchen and Dad and us girls have learnt alot from watching her create healthy plant based food that people from all walks of life, love and feel better for eating.
Unfortunately, we had to close the doors of this popular café as the new road that was built bypassed our roadside location.
We have continued the Taste and See brand with catering, camps and demonstrations.
Then in August 2016 our dad got sick , by Gods grace, we had an unexpected 8 amazing months with him.
He continued Inspiring family, friends, and complete strangers with his faith in Jesus, and His lifestyle plan. Unconditional love and a big smile that you could even see thru his eyes is the memory I am left with from our Dad.
Dad always believed in us and encouraged our family to follow our God given passion and skills in a way that helped others .
So it came as no surprise when dad encouraged mum from his bed, to do another plant based café.
With the support of our family, friends and our church the opportunity HAS ARRIVED.
We are excited to share with you that Taste and See, Lifestyle Cafe and whole foods store in Dargaville, Northland, New Zealand is about to open.
