I'm Sara Tane and I'm a private chef and recipe developer based in Los Angeles, CA.

I am classically trained chef who has worked in restaurant kitchens, private kitchens, test kitchens, and most importantly, my own kitchen. I am passionate about empowering the home cook and reminding you that cooking! is! FUN!

I've written for Good Housekeeping, Food52, The Kitchn, Cooking Light, The Takeout, MyRecipes, and Saveur.

I was born and raised on Long Island and studied Food Studies and Global Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I'm a graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education.

I also have a serious thing for oysters.
