Ruth Pretty owned the successful Wellington restaurant Marbles for 10 years before setting up Ruth Pretty Catering and the Ruth Pretty Cooking School at her peaceful property at Te Horo. Now a substantial business, the Te Horo location is surrounded by market gardens, orchards and herb gardens, all providing fresh bounty for her kitchen, while the house is often used for weddings and other functions.
