About me

Hello. My name is Tara. I am a foodie and the creative mind behind Tara’s Busy Kitchen. This site is a collection of my recipes, reviews, pictures and other stories…

Born and living in Exeter. I champion local food and producers. Celebrating everything good about food. I’m available for events, bespoke recipes and reviews.  I am also a ballet teacher and cat lover.  

I enjoy cooking and trying out new recipes. My passion for cooking stemmed from childhood visits to my aunt’s house in Hampshire. She inspired me with wonderful creations and I have had her love of food, cooking and entertaining instilled in me. There is nothing I love more than having my friends and family to the house for a get together over food. You can’t beat it!

I trained with the Royal Academy of Dance for three years on their teaching certificate programme. After graduating in 2001 I started teaching professionally all over Devon and then settled in Exeter.

My love of travel inspires me too. Visiting different countries can’t help but get the creative juices flowing!

My blog will be the perfect way to remember what I do… a kind of diary. I hope you will enjoy reading it too… 

P.S. I have four cats so I expect they will pop up ever so often too!
