Our Story

Vertigo Catering is a private event and catering company owned and operated by Tom and Linda van Rijk; offering premier catering throughout the beautiful Hawkes Bay region.

Being born into a 'cooking' family, Tom has  always had a passion for food and has been cooking since he could walk.

Vertigo has been operating since 2010, when Tom and Linda moved back to Hawkes Bay from the Netherlands.

They worked together at "Cafe Vertigo" in the Vondelpark, Amsterdam, and here it is where they put pens to paper and planned their dream of running their own business back in New Zealand. Tom even proposed to Linda in the Vondelpark. So with their love of food and for each other, it only fit that they name their business  "Vertigo Catering".

We have worked hard in the market to provide a well earned reputation for an excellent quality of service and exceptional food.
