- Why Tara
The delicious Tara boarding house food tradition continues with our inhouse Chef Albert overseeing the Tara kitchen serviced by a dedicated team of staff who prepare a wide variety of healthy meals.
Girls enjoy a regular menu rotation of delectable food. Meals and dining are about balance, nutrition, taste and diversity of foods and cuisines.
Birthdays are celebrated over dinner and each boarder is able to choose their menu for the night of her birthday.
We want to impart the important sense of joy that is spread liberally when it comes to sharing a meal.
Desserts and baked goods in next post! Chef Albert who joined us recently is a gourmet baker!
The menu is mouth-watering, so we had to include some of it here.
