welcome to nosh with tash

Hi, and thanks for stopping by! What in the world is Nosh with Tash you ask? Well, in a few words, it’s an approachable cooking show for busy people with refined palates.  What does that actually mean in practice? I’ll tell you. Each episode features a simple recipe that's delicious and easy to master, without requiring culinary gymnastics. Unlike the average cooking show, my goal here is to be really honest about what cooking actually looks like. I hate when you watch a cooking show, or buy a cookbook, and then go home to make a recipe and it’s either impossibly hard, or way better looking on camera.  Do you know why that is? It’s because people on shows have culinary teams and film each

video 3-4 times to make sure it’s all perfect. But on this show I shoot each recipe in just one take. I ad lib fixes as needed, and rally against the “Instagram-perfect” aesthetic that would require you to place your cilantro with tweezers. I want you to see that if you’re having a good time and cooking for your family or friends, you’ve won. I’m here with ideas for delicious food and instructions that won’t scare you away. Ask me questions, invite me over for dinner, I’m here for you. I really think anyone can be a good cook with a little practice and a good teacher.

STORY TIME:

I'm a culinary school drop out + private chef who didn't always love to cook. While studying Shakespearean acting in London, at a time when the US dollar was at an all time low, I wound up spending more time trying to figure out how to save money by making my own simple stews and quick rising breads than memorizing my lines. I quickly discovered that I got greater pleasure from looking at stacks of walnut speckled brownies and wheels of cheese from Borough Market than I did from taking a final bow at the end of a show.

Upon return to the states, my newfound love for cooking led to me fumbling my way (almost all the way) through a culinary degree from LATTC and a slew of jobs as an assistant teaching cooking classes. In 2014 I decided it was time to experiment with combining my love of performance with my love of cooking and, after a little bit more fumbling, Yahoo agreed to air a cooking show I co-produced, directed and hosted. Ever since, I've been both in front of and behind the camera, taking every opportunity I can to spread my enthusiasm of simple cooking and great food.
