Tara Salonius
Digital Creator
I was born in Kingston Jamaica but grew up just east of Toronto, referred from this point on as The Six (paying homage to the once one-and-only area code of the city 416). My whole life I have spent in this city. My father drove the subway for 35 years and out of all my parents friends and family we were the only ones who didn’t live in Toronto. Dated boys, had best friends, went to University, night clubs shopping, eating, concerts all in this city. So it’s been quite a love affair. And all these years, I feel like it’s always been me somehow going west, from east of The Six.

Now I have lots of passions. My family. Cooking. Music. Books. Movies. Basketball. Laughter. All of which were birthed out of what I would consider a lonely childhood, but happy nonetheless. No tears to shed. Certainly possible to have both as I did. But that’s a story for another day.

I started this cooking as an escape during my maternity leave and later during the many lockdowns. As I documented my adventures in the kitchen on Instagram, it began to turn into so much more. A community. A creative outlet. Source of inspiration. Friendships.  A new passion.  And down the rabbit hole I go.
