What’s Cooking with Kids is a Certified Green business that has offered healthy and seasonal cooking classes and birthday parties to children of all ages in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are proud to support local farmers and use organic ingredients whenever possible. Our unique approach to teaching includes charitable events that motivate families to step up to the plate to use food & cooking as a means to help the less fortunate. At the present time, we hope to continue supporting families through the blog posts on this page, but are not currently offering any of our classes. Owner, Michelle Stern, has returned to her roots, and is teaching high school biology (and encouraging her students to eat healthy!)
Michelle Stern, Owner of What’s Cooking with Kids and Author of The Whole Family Cookbook:
After a post-collegiate stint at studying primate mating behavior, I taught high school biology and environmental science for 5 years. For the past 11 years, I have focused on my own two wonderful children, various 4-legged pets, backyard chickens and quickly expanding vegetable garden. In the Fall of 2011, I returned to the classroom to teach high school biology again. I can’t wait to incorporate food into the curriculum!
What’s Cooking with Kids is a certified-green company that offers healthy and seasonal cooking classes to kids in the San Francisco Bay Area. Not only do my classes teach kids and their families to enjoy delicious home-made foods, but they also motivate families to use food and cooking to help those less fortunate. My book, The Whole Family Cookbook, came out in March, 2011.
Our blog shares recipes, tips on cooking and planning meals with kids, and ideas of how we can help our community and planet through food and cooking.
Because so many people asked, here are a few more details about my transition from high school teacher to where I am now. I couldn’t leave you hanging, could I?
