Born and raised in Elverum, Tømte trained as a chef and gained a degree from the Norwegian School of Hotel Management in Stavanger. Her dream was always to return to Elverum and open her own establishment. When a newly constructed building in her preferred area became available, Tømte knew the timing was right. Backed by a great team, Siris Delikatesse, Spisested og Catering finally opened in October 2014.
