Mark Evans of Tierra Kitchen

Tierra Kitchen is the brainchild of Mark Evans. Until recently, Mark ran Bristol's Café Maitreya – twice named 'Restaurant of the Year' by the National Vegetarian Society and winner of the 2007 Observer National Vegetarian Society award. With consistent listings in the Good Food Guide, Café Maitreya was part of a renaissance in vegetarian cuisine.

Tierra Kitchen takes the ideas behind Café Maitreya's success to a home audience, using the bounty of local ingredients available.
