Cherie Bevan (the Cook) grew up inspired by a mother and grandmother who were fabulous home bakers. For decades she has run landmark deli cafes, including Gusto and Crave, in Sydney's eastern suburbs.
Tass Tauroa (the Baker) spent his formative cooking years in the New Zealand Royal Navy. He worked at Gusto and then in London under Michelin-starred chef Bruno Loubet. Returning to Sydney, Tass worked at Jersey Cow, Darling Mills, Buzo and Bird Cow Fish before establishing The Cook and Baker with Cherie.
