Tatiana Boncompagni, founding CEO of organic food supplier Eat Sunny, will wow guests with her Mediterranean-focused cuisine on July 9th at Dan’s Rosé Soirée, the third event in Dan’s Taste Summer Series presented by Yieldstreet.

Boncompagni followed an unconventional route into the kitchen after a long career in journalism, with Bylines appearing in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and serves as the Lifestyle Editor for Even Magazine. She had always loved food but was nervous to continue this journey as she had never created recipes or written much about cuisine before.

A conversation with Tatiana Boncompagni

“Somehow I had never connected my professional life with my personal passion,” says Boncomopagni.

She ended up loving her new position. She was able to work with some of the best chefs, especially in the field of healthy eating, and learn about recipe development. She later decided to start her own business and leave journalism to the food industry. She and her then-partner Heather Marr, a top-notch personal trainer, created a fitness and nutrition e-book.

“She developed the training programs, and then I developed the recipes for the nutrition program,” says Boncompagni. “When you bring nutrition and fitness together, you can really transform a person’s body very quickly.”

Boncompagni and Marr’s business was successful, but Boncompagni noted that they kept getting similar feedback.

“What I kept hearing from people was, ‘Well, I sort of dropped the program because I don’t have time to shop for groceries or prep, and that’s why I did the exercise, but I didn’t stick to the diet kept plan’”, she recalls. What Boncompagni describes as “the seed that eventually became Eat Sunny” is when a customer said to her, “Can’t you just make the food and put it in my freezer?”

Boncompagni’s journalistic background sets Eat Sunny apart from other food delivery companies.

“What I’m really trying to do with Eat Sunny is to bring in my journalism background and the fact that everything we’ve ever done has had to be fact-checked,” she says. “That’s how I run my food delivery business in the sense that it’s science-based.”

Eat Sunny follows Mediterranean nutritional approaches and principles. The company prides itself on being “scientifically based, nutritionally balanced, antioxidant-fortified and delicious,” says Boncompagni.

This year Boncompagni takes part in the Rosé Soirée for the first time. She has an incredible passion for Eat Sunny and is very excited to share what they have to offer with the community.

“I can’t wait for people to try what we do at Eat Sunny,” she says.

Boncopagni plans to serve one of its popular dishes, the vermicelli pasta salad, with shrimp, chicken or tofu. Vermicelli is naturally gluten free and blood sugar balancing.

“It’s full of vibrant and fresh flavors, it’s great for summer,” says Boncompagni. “I think it’s a great example of how we work healthy at Eat Sunny, super fresh, super healthy but also explosive flavors.”
