YOU most likely will have seen her supervan at numerous community events in the Upper Hunter.
Local resident Liza White motors around the region, attending rugby union matches, musical concerts, food and wine festivals, and private functions such as birthdays and Christmas parties.
A combined passion for food and theatre influenced the decision to create a “colourful and different” catering van.
She said the community had been extremely supportive of her fresh concept.
“It's quite a novelty really; I think people have just enjoyed seeing it around which is pleasing,” she said.
“My interest in theatre, I think, is part of the reason behind the supervan’s theatrical and slightly dramatic appearance.
“The reason for it [the van] is that I just love food, it's one of my favourite things.
“I've travelled extensively around the world and rated my best experiences on how good the food was there. It [food] is a very powerful thing in that respect.”
Her love of food, and the region, was ingrained from countless trips to the Upper Hunter when she was a child.
“My father did a lot of catering work for the Scone Polo Club back in the 1980s and 90s, so I spent a lot of time here during that period,” she said.
The tradition has continue,d with Liza assisting as a caterer at the club, both in and out of the van.
After growing up in Tamworth, Liza lived in Sydney for 13 years before spending 12 months in San Francisco.
She then moved to Scone in 2000 and quickly became involved in both fundraising and catering services.
Liza took part in an annual breast cancer fundraiser every October, which included a calendar called the 'Real Housewives of Scone'.
It managed to raise more than $25,000, with almost half of that amount going to the Muswellbrook Hospital Oncology ward and the rest being donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
She is also a celebrant, performing numerous weddings and name giving ceremonies across the Hunter over the years.
