Alba (Valencian) & Simon (Yorkshirean) met and then later married in London, 2011. They left the big smoke for pastures greener in 2012 – renovating a dilapidated grade 11 listed building and opening a B&B in Burton-in-Kendal. Much like they do on these renovation programmes they decided to have a child at the same time and the B&B life became ‘awks’. Simon found employment at Lakeland Arts & Alba at The Brewery Arts Centre.
Managing two cafes and shops for Lakeland Arts reignited Simon’s desire to manage their own – Alba’s reluctance to commit financial suicide wouldn’t prove strong enough t0 extinguish those flames and so Comida [food] became a reality.
