Donna Eichhorn is the heart and soul of Donna’s Tamales. Preparing memorable delicious meals is an intricate part of her life. Donna’s culinary training began at an early age. Her mother blended the flavours of Tennessee cooking with California’s fresh ingredients leaving an impression on Donna’s palate. Donna’s own cooking is inspired by the Latin influences that surround us in California. Her work in Marin County as chef manager of a popular restaurant encouraged her to fill the void of fresh healthy meal choices. As a busy woman always looking for quick healthy nutritious dinner choices; Donna knew she could create something that would satisfy nearly everyone’s palate.

Donna teamed up with Shirley Virgil a long time vegetarian and an experienced accountant to develop the business plan and launch the company. Shirley’s unbridled enthusiasm for Donna’s culinary talents and her commitment to organic methods made a strong partnership. Together they have created Donna’s Tamales and other fine meal choices.

We hope that our effort will make your lives more simple, satisfying and healthful.
