Happy New Year From Tante Marie’s Kitchen!

Jan 2015: Everyone is asking me “how’s life after Tante Marie’s?” And, the truth is “I am having a blast!” I love teaching out of my house again! And the proceeds are going to Food Runners, which is even better!


For the last three months I have been giving private classes to families of 8 to 12 students; a birthday party for eight year olds; and after school series once a week to private school 11-year olds; and, of course, I am still conducting Cooking Parties for groups of up to 40 people. And, the best is that the proceeds go to www.foodrunners.org!

We are also offering One-Day and One-Week Courses this winter; so, check them out on www.tantemarie.com. And, don’t forget there are hundreds of my Recipes and lots of my Videos on tantemarie.com. And, even more important is to Have Fun Cooking!


You may ask “what is Food Runners?” Food Runners is a group of over 200 Volunteers who are taking food in San Francisco from businesses with excess food and delivering it to neighborhood food programs. We also have a truck for large pickups and a couple of cargo bikes for the donations of leftover food from the start-ups South of Market. So much food is being donated around San Francisco that we could really use more Volunteers. To donate food, volunteer, or give a financial contribution go to www.foodrunners.org. You will also find there information on Food Runner type organizations in Marin, Sonoma, and the Peninsula. Make 2015 the year you do more to give back anyway you can! Happy New Year!


p.s. Why not use up your leftovers and donate the bucket of soup to a neighborhood feeding program? For my Turkey Chile Soup Video and Recipe click here!
