On today's The Food Seen, we meet Tara Norvell. A daughter of Spanish and Southern descent, worked her way through the Manhattan fashion scene, into a London cuisine diploma, and back to NYC into the BACK OF THE HOUSE of Roberta's as a sous chef. What does her future hold? A possible venture into a ramen business? Setting up stagés in Spain? Wherever it leads her, she's certainly worth following. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"My mom cooked every single night - we never ever went out to dinner. Home cooked meals were all we ever knew." [03:00]

"The quality of life in London is way better in New York. No matter what industry you're in, you're treated better. New York is a sink or swim type of city." [24:00]
