About us


Tasha Higgins ( that's me with the giant ginger) has been chef/owner of Mother’s Kitchen Foods since 1996. I started my love for real food while working at the Morning Glory Café in Bar Harbor when I was 19. I followed my passion by attending New York Restaurant School in Manhattan, NY. I completed the program and did an internship at a large catering company where they worked events for fragrance debuts, photo shoots, and even a parties hosted by the NYC Zoo.

I decided that city life was not for me and back to my Island I went. Soon after, I purchased Mother’s Kitchen from a lovely lady named Kirsten who was ready to move on to other ventures.

Now we welcome a new addition to Mother's by having a full coffee bar and great new partners.
