Amber Vito

Amber grew up in rural Nelson. Her parents ran New Zealand’s first gluten-free bakery, Dovedale Bread. Roland and Chrissie had travelled extensively, so she was very lucky to grow up in a family passionate about food from all cultures. A media graduate and wordsmith, Amber moved to Wellington to finish her postgrad study, which is where she met her husband Victor. Five years on they are happily married and have a five-month-old son, Karlos.
