We had the good fortune of connecting with Tamara Wolff and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tamara, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I want to make people happy with good food that is what I call “Soulful food”… food that has been touched, loved, grown with love and cooked/created with love with REAL ingredients.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I went through the Cottage Foods class through the CSU extension to get certified to sell cottage foods. As a professional, I am a 21 year seasoned teacher who started her career as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Solomon Islands. I believe service work is the best gift one can give to themselves. I teach because I see that as service work, and I want to feed people good food with my new side company “Beets and Sweets” so they can eat whole “soulful” food that has been made with actual hands, that is organic and non-gmo, and sweetened with only maple syrup. Our most precious thing, our bodies, respond beautifully to REAL food, and as part of my service-work heart, I want to help people eat amazing food.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
In Fort Collins I would take them hiking in my backyard, to my little 1930s cabin for a getaway up the Poudre canyon and then we would have a beer in the sunshine at a local brew pub!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband, Mark Barry, my family, and my dear friends at school for seeing the potential in my cooking and encouraging me to follow my passions and my “art” and love for cooking.
