In 1994 George and Barb Tate left behind the hectic big city Portland life for a calmer existence in Redmond. Natives to Central Oregon, and high school sweethearts, it didn’t take long for George and Barb to reestablish their roots.
George Tate’s passion for food has followed him throughout his life. From his first taste as a restaurateur at Redmond’s old 86 Corral, to days spent sharpening his skills at the Culinary Institute of America, to achieving stature as executive chef at Portland’s esteemed Heathman Hotel. George simply loves to cook.
Not one to sit idle, George played in the couples home kitchen preparing small care packages of freshly made soups and breads for friends and family. Before long, what started as a fun way to pass the time sprouted into Tate and Tate Catering. Word quickly spread of George and Barb’s fine attention to detail and delicious food.
With the increased patronage came the need for a bigger work space and some extra help. So the Tates converted their two car garage into a fully functional, licensed food kitchen and hired support staff. Now the catering business is considered one of the finest Central Oregon has to offer.
Today George, Barb and their caring staff, many of whom have been with the Tates since the beginning, cater to hundreds of people daily. If you need catering in central Oregon, whether you’re planning a wedding reception, business luncheon, small scale dinner party or simply crave a little something from the Meal Home Delivery menu to enjoy in the privacy of your own home, Tate and Tate Catering can serve you.
