About Tara

Feeding families is my passion. My cooking roots run deep, beginning in childhood when we lived with my Italian Grandfather. Waking up to the aroma of his simmering 'meat ragu'  at  9:00 in the morning was the norm...and probably why I love to eat leftovers at breakfast. Growing up in a small Vermont town also taught me to love entertaining at home (there's not much else to do) and how to cook my favorite Thai foods (not going to find 'exotic' curries in central Vt)! 

A call to healthier living led me to receive a certification in holistic nutrition, and while I still eat 'all the bad foods', I am forever intrigued with the concept of food as medicine.

I am also a recipe developer, and run a family food focused blog Modernmomskitchenacademy.com

The past year and half I have been happily feeding both the local and visiting families of Maine, creating gorgeous food and custom cakes for their dinner tables and private events.

Tara's Allagash Beer Braised Brat's are the best thing I have eaten since I have been in Maine.

Tara - the ginger honey tea was so good. My daughter and I shared it and it soothed our very sore throats. 

We felt taken care of. Thank you!
