Hi, I'm Tanya the Homestyle Gourmet! I’m a personal chef and cooking teacher and i've been cooking, entertaining, and event planning for over twenty years. I've always been interested in homestyle food inspired by world flavors. I especially like to prepare simple and flavorful recipes using fresh and seasonal ingredients.
Most of my love of cooking developed from helping in the kitchen while growing up. As an adult, I've continued my culinary interest by experimenting with recipes, reading cook books, and watching many cooking shows. In 2011, I completed the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts certificate program to learn new techniques and gain a professional perspective.
Now, I share what interests me about food, recipes, and ingredients through the classes that I teach.
I offer several professional culinary services to share what inspires me about food.
My services include: cooking classes, personal chef services, meal planning, cooking demos at events, recipe development, and product reviews & collaborations.
Please contact me with any questions or interest in my culinary services at firstname.lastname@example.org
