Earth Oven Wood Fired Pizza are Rodney Scott and Kate Genders, old friends and passionate foodies.
Rodney's claim to fame is being the founder of award winning Lismore restaurant, Fire in the Belly. This man knows his pizza. He's been holding the peel, producing delicious pizzas for over 8 years now and thousands of people can attest to that! As well as running a successful restaurant, Rodney has managed to squeeze in some major events with this mobile wood fired set up including; 5 Byron Bay Blues Festivals, 3 Woodford Festivals, 6 Nimbin Mardi Grass Festivals and The Ekka (Royal Brisbane Show over 10 days). This is just to name the major ones. There have been many small and wonderful events along the way too.
Kate has worked in most facets of the hospitality industry starting out in the kitchen of a modern Australian Restaurant on the Far South Coast 18 years ago and working her way through the roles of Waitress, Cook, and Catering Assistant at various establishments as well as the position of Cafe Manager at Big Harvest in Carlton, Melbourne. The variety of roles and workplaces has given her a well-rounded understanding of the world of catering and food service. Kate has also worked alongside Rodney at several of the above mentioned events and must have gotten a taste for the business as she has gone on to create Earth Oven Wood Fired Pizza with him!
Together we are a professional, experienced and friendly partnership who love what we do and who are looking forward to sharing our pizza and presence with you.
