Heather Mojer has worked at Hungry Mother for nearly four years now. The experience behind the bar with a small but devoted group of people has been a first-rate environment for personal growth. Raised by a restaurant family, it seemed to be only a matter of time before Heather would find her way “behind the stick”. During college, earning a degree in Sustainable Agriculture, Heather worked at a student-run sandwich shop and also as a barista. The pleasure she found in efficiently assembling short-order items inclined her to accept a few years later when offered a bartending position at Hungry Mother.
2012 marks Heather’s second year at Tales of the Cocktail. She is honored to take part in the CAP program this year and be surrounded by prominent and driven individuals in this great industry. With her free time spent employed as a barista, Heather is particularly enthusiastic with the line up of seminars that discuss coffee and tea in a particular, but also agriculture and herbs.
Commendations include a cover piece in Imbibe magazine holiday 2011, as well as a forthcoming bartender feature with Chilled magazine summer 2012. She was invited to join LUPEC Boston earlier in the year, and have done so, operating under the epithet Swedish Punsch.
