Hermana was a while in the making, sisters Lucie and Holly came back after stints away at university and travelling abroad (eating their fair share of street food). Coincidently they returned to Hawkes Bay at the same time, and Hermana was born.
They parked their food truck up in Waimamara domain for the summer, fine tuning their menu. They were a hit with the locals!
Hermana has two meanings, it is the Spanish word for sister which ties in with the theme. Lucie and Holly also wanted to draw from Te Reo and their community which is full of strong wāhine, her mana. The sisters ..”love meeting and sharing our kai with people from not only New Zealand but all round the world, as the HB Farmers Market has a great reputation and draws locals and travellers alike. It’s always cool to see people who have enjoyed our food come back again!”.
The sisters are both environmentally conscious, they use high quality ingredients, local and organic where possible. Their packaging is biodegradable, and they source a lot of their produce from fellow stall holders at the market – Orcona jalapeños for their famous jalapeño poppers, and Epicurean salad greens, to name a few.
Hermana is available for booking and events so feel free to get in touch.
