Educated as a Fashion Designer yet rooted in the kitchen, my heritage and my love for aesthetics are what guide me in the kitchen (with a special bond to everything dessert). Born in Mexico from Syrian, Polish, Lebanese, and Russian descent, I mix and match and make everything better with a little twist (or splash of Tahini). Aslan my husband, and I have a crazy love of meeting people, and feeding them, always having people over at our cool and smallish South Loop loft.

What to expect at Tamar's place
Wow!! Tamar's babka was out of this world, I'm still thinking about it 3 days later. Tamar and her husband were lovely hosts and their apartment is very unique and stylish. Everything Tamar served for brunch was incredible, but my favorite was the babka & latkes. Tamar was a very gracious and friendly host and I would definitely come back for another one of her experiences. Thanks, Tamar!!
My friend and I planned a spontaneous trip to Chicago over the Thanksgiving weekend. Wanting a non-traditional holiday experience without turkey, mashed potatoes, and all the rest, we found Tamar willing to host us at the last minute on her own holiday! What a delight! Tamar was very gracious and engaging and made two retired ladies feel welcome and like family. Tamar is a gifted young woman on many levels, she is bright, interesting, articulate, creative, and an amazing chef. We enjoyed every bite of our quite non-traditional small plates and wine of course! A memorable holiday and I hope to return on my next visit to the wonderful city of Chicago. Thanks again, Tamar!
