Tamar Kagan


A Lifelong vegetarian with knowledge encompassing cuisines ranging from vegetarian to vegan to macrobiotic, Tamar Kagan was raised with a passion for whole foods, influenced by a combination of Eastern European and Middle Eastern cuisine. She moved to San Francisco when she was five, and her palette expanded to many different cuisines. As soon as she was on her own in the kitchen, she taught herself how to prepare clean, healthy, easy, fun and affordable meals, inspired by many cultures. The key to being healthy is a balanced nutritious diet and a consistent exercise routine. Kagan's experience as the Assistant General Manager of one NYC’s most popular vegan/macrobiotic restaurants, Angelica’s Kitchen, and her background as a Spinning Instructor, taught her how to prepare super healthy, nutritious meals. And while she doesn’t eat it, she can also provide  information on eating the right meat/fish/poultry, and how to prepare it.
