Years ago I volunteered as a cooking instructor at Olivewood Gardens in National City, teaching young kids how to cook. So, when I decided to write a story for the San Diego Union-Tribune's food section recently on teaching cooking to children, I turned to Olivewood Gardens for resources and the reasons why parents should encourage their kids to participate in preparing family meals. I got a lot of great tips--and recipes--which I've shared in this new piece, which was published on March 13, 2018.
This week R. W. Smith & Co., a food service supply company, featured me in a Q&A on their website. They asked some terrific questions about how I got started as a food writer, advice I have for budding food journalists, and--given my interest in healthy eating for kids--how to get them cooking. Take a look!
