Tara Vaughan-Hughes

Vegetarian Chef

Before coming to Schumacher (and the UK), Tara lived in her home state of Vermont in the USA, where she started and operated a very successful restaurant/café called Eat Good Food, which specialised in preparing and serving locally grown, seasonal foods.  “I’ve been in and out of the restaurant business since I was 18 - I kept leaving to work at what I thought of as more professional jobs, but I always came back.  I just love to cook because I love food and I love feeding people. A friend and employee of mine once told me, ‘Some people eat to live, but you live to eat!’ and that’s not far from the truth. I think that life is filled with pleasure, and for me, eating is near the top of the list – and as a bonus we get to do it at least three times a day!”  Tara’s cooking is heavily influenced by her love of the Mediterranean food cultures, but she is definitely not averse to a cream tea or an old-fashioned, gooey American brownie.
