Hi and welcome to Tara’s Multicultural Table! This website features mostly fresh and all-natural recipes from around the world. I am Tara, a 28 year old stay at home mom. I currently live in Northern Virginia with my husband, 3 year old son, and 1 year old daughter. Cooking has become such a wonderful hobby of mine and I hope to share it with you. I also enjoy scrapbooking, reading, dance, and travel.
I love many types of cuisines. My favorites include (but are definitely not limited to!) Japanese, German, Italian, Greek, and Vietnamese. My husband’s family is Filipino and I also love many of their dishes. I have been lucky to have the opportunity to travel to many places. I was born in Japan and my family moved to Germany when I was 1 year old. I spent my toddler and preschool years in Germany before moving to the United States in time for elementary school. I lived in Montgomery, Alabama for most of my childhood. I visited Germany many times during college and even got to take my husband there for our honeymoon in Munich! My favorite foods there were definitely the pastries. During our honeymoon, there was a bakery right next to our hotel and we would stop by every morning. It was one of the highlights of our trip and a great way to start each day.
I started this blog in October 2012 to share recipes I have tried from cookbooks, magazines, and other food blogs. One of the highlights of my week is finding out what will be in my CSA (community shared agriculture) box and menu planning according to the fresh fruits and vegetables that are available. I love finding new recipes and spend way too much time on pinterest organizing future meals to make. Thanks for visiting!
