Tanya Soman

Founder & Head Chef

Tanya is a Singapore based former designer and food blogger turned entrepreneur. After spending ten years designing amazing restaurants and boutique hotels across Asia, she decided to pack it all up and pursue her passion for kid's food writing and cooking.

The concept for “Fusspot & Foodie” was born from Tanya’s passion to share her cooking and recipes with fellow parents and fueled by the experiences of her own parenting journey. She believes that every child can has the potential to be a good, mindful eater if they are consistently offered good choices and is proud to be the helping hand that busy parents need, to achieve this.

When she takes a break from juggling her various roles as a mum, wife and entrepreneur, Tanya will most likely be found reading to her little girl in an animated voice, teaching herself origami, dreaming about the hillside B&B she hopes to own and reminding their goofy pooch that crayons & Lego are not actual food groups!
