Moroccan comfort food from an award-winning chef. For nearly a decade, Tara Kitchen has served Moroccan food that’s for everyone. It’s worldly but accessible comfort food packed with flavor—hold the mashed potatoes. Vibrant, not fiery, it’s seasoned with spices that reflect Morocco’s history as a cultural crossroad and celebrated Chef Aneesa Waheed’s talent for building beautifully balanced flavors out of unexpected combinations. Signature tagines—stews featuring chicken, lamb, or seafood, and a variety of veggies—are fragrant with earthy cumin, coriander, turmeric, and paprika. Fruits like dried figs and apricots, as well as prunes and local blueberries add subtle sweetness, and olives, a salty pop. Herbs like mint, fenugreek, and parsley add finishing touches. It all comes together in a magical (and kid-friendly!) way that’s outright addictive, like a culinary hug.

 Her mastery of sweet and savory flavors and inventive take on Moroccan cuisine has brought her considerable acclaim: She’s earned several awards including 40 under 40 and Rising Star and has been featured in several Food TV Network shows including Beat Bobby Flay, Kitchen Crash and Guy Fieri’s Grocery Games

Find Tara Kitchen’s line of distinctive jarred sauces on our website, tarakitchen.com, as well as Whole Foods (Northeast), Price Chopper, Hannaford, Niskayuna Food Co-op, and Honest Weight Food Co-op



All three locations are open for take-out, free delivery within a 5 mile radius and indoor dinning.
