Halima Ferreira and Adam Ferris
"From a tender age of 13, I was scrapping the block in a local butchers shop and slowly progressed to a qualified butcher - delivering papers was never entertaining enough! So you can say the catering industry was always in me.
I then branched out to hotels and gastro pubs until I decided to take the Michelin route working under the likes of Gordon Ramsey and John Burton-Race for the experience.
I'm now helping the Chef shortage with a leading recruitment agency and teaming up with Halima in a separate consultancy venture*

Halima Ferreira and B13 Bespoke catering
‘In November 2018, Tailored Taste and B13 Bespoke Catering teamed up for a 50th birthday party for clients in Northhamptonshire.
Halima contacted me to ask whether I could look after the booking as she was unable to as she was still in the Middle East.
I was more than happy to step into the breach. Halima was still able to liaise with the client with regards the background details
and I was left to look after the food side of things. The event took place at Mears Ashby Hall, just outside Northampton and what a venue it was.
A stunning piece of Jacobean architecture; built in 1637 and extended in 1859 by preeminent Victorian architect Anthony Salvin.
Thanks to him I had the most amazing kitchen to use for producing the food on the evening. By a quirk of fate Halima was in the UK quickly passing through doing another bit of work, as if her diary wasn't busy enough. This meant that we were able to work
together again after all these years. Halima looked after the front of house with the waiting team and I did what I do best, I got on with the cooking. The pictures below speak for themselves.
