Our Mission is to cultivate enthusiasm for cooking and build a positive culture around family meals! We use the perspective of food, cooking, and nutrition to learn about geography, math, science, and culture, while helping kids develop a life-long love of fresh ingredients and vegetables.
Samantha Smith, Owner
I strongly believe that our community’s investment in children’s nutrition needs to run deeper than their dinner plate. By combining my culinary skills with my love of teaching, I hope to develop a program that ignites food creativity and adventure in students
My background is in baking, kitchen management, and youth development. I have worked for Boys and Girls Club, Redmond Teen Programs, and Friends of Youth.
Since 2014 I have taught hundreds of classes at over 20 Seattle and Eastside schools. Parents have shared that my program has changed the overall mood of dinner time in their home. Their kids have become more adventurous and have a better understanding of the work that goes into a meal.
