LLCAI certified Raw Foods Chef & Instructor

"If you want to be alive, eat live foods." - Anthony Robbins, author of 'Personal Power'


A vegetarian for over 35 years, Tara worked for three years in food education for Wild Oats markets. She chose the natural progression to a raw food diet in 2004 and completed Raw Food Chef and Raw Food Instructor Certifications at Living Lights Culinary Arts Institute in Fort Brag California in 2005. Tara also completed Raw Foods Catering and Elegant Entertaining the same year.

The health and spiritual benefits of incorporating raw foods into the diet led Tara to offer her skills to others as a Raw Food Instructor LLCAI. She has had the privilege to assist individuals in their aspiration for glowing health and expanding consciousness since 2005.


"My husband surprised me with a raw uncooking class by Tara! Tara brought a cooler full of ingredients and supplies to our house and then taught us how to prepare 4 amazing dishes! The food was delicious and the experience was informative and a lot of fun. We would highly recommend Tara if you are interested in learning more about healthy eating. I wish we could have Tara preparing meals for us every night!!" - M & C, Erie, CO

"Chocolate Hazelnut Torte, Savory French Crepes in Tarragon Sauce, Sun dried Tomato Crackers, Creamy Mushroom Soup and Sweet Onion Bread - Tara’s raw food recipes are magic!  (The Pecan Pate is incredible.)" - B. D., Denver, CO

"I took my first private class with Tara and wanted to thank her for teaching me so much in such a short amount of time. I've been primarily eating a raw/vegan diet for some time but had grown bored and dissatisfied with my weekly food preparation. After discussing my diet and health concerns, Tara came up with some fabulous recipes for me which were both easy and delicious. I also learned some great skills which I hope to expand upon in future classes with Tara." - E. E., Boulder, CO

"The nutritional information I received let me choose raw recipes to address the health issues that are of concern to me. I greatly appreciated Tara’s personalized approach and her knowledge about food and health." - L. E., Littleton, CO

"It was fun, educational and filled with hope for the future. You made us feel comfortable and confident that when we left your guidance, we could continue our exploration into living, vibrant back-to-the-earth food. I look forward to the next experience with you." - M. A., Boulder, CO

"Delightful and delicious. Communal (non)cooking is a wonderful way to learn new raw recipes and make friends. Tara's creativity shines through each dish and is art you can eat." - T. E., Boulder, CO

"Tara’s marvelous raw food will convert even the most skeptical gourmet. No need to sacrifice for healthy eating. This raw food is delicious!" - M-L. A., Boulder, CO
