About US

Mat and Linda met in 1991 in Antarctica whilst Mat was under contract for McMurdo Base. Mat was baking and Linda was in BEQ.
After returning to NZ, we spent a year in Wellington working for Cafe Paradiso, Mat cooking and Linda front of house whilst also working at Shed 5. It was then they decided to embark on a worldwide culinary journey. After spending some time in the USA traveling and sampling cuisine from North to South, they ended up based in London working within the music industry catering for bands on tour, for large European festivals, events and catering for music awards and celebrity weddings.

Clients included Courtney Love, Tom Jones, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Destinys Child, Neil Diamond, Elton John, Pearl Jam, Lord of the Dance, The Stones and Paul McCartney.  Tour catering involved extensive travel throughout the UK, Europe, Russia, USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan and Australia, a daily changing menu providing four meals a day consisting of a variety of choices for all dietary and nutritional requirements and presented in the highest standard expected by highly qualified chefs and front of house people that we had the pleasure of working with. Tour numbers could be from 30 to 800 people and tours lasted from six weeks to three years.

Experiences included working in an ever changing, daily, challenging location such as a bullring in Spain, the Colosseum in Rome, the Red Square in Russia, Madison Square Gardens in New York and a 12th Century castle in Ireland. We also worked with many local crew dealing with languages, currency, custom, locating and sourcing indigenous produce as well as meeting all those special requirements an Artist wanted.

We returned to NZ in 2003 and co managed the award winning Beachhouse Cafe in Riverton before setting up MASH Catering Limited.
