Kids Culinary Adventures

This is how it all begun. A few years ago, after my youngest thought money came out of the wall of the “Drive thru-ATM machine”, I knew I had to do something.


I opened dialogue with my then eight, and ten year old children about starting a small family business at home; simply as a lesson in economics.

As a parent / educator I decided to teach the kids about business by having them design a fictitious small business of their choice. I merely guided them by leading brainstorming meetings, marketing meetings, and listened carefully to what they thought would be a great children’s business...little to my knowledge, and like the “Big Bang”.... Kids Culinary Adventure (KCA) was formed.

I am currently the principal owner; I usually have my children consult me on class ideas and products offered. Sometimes when appropriate they even conduct class with me. I work for them now-


In December 2004, I  left  my job as the Dean of Students at the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco due to a car accident- ( Im doing better now thank you *-wink)  . As a single parent, this small business now enables me to stay home and spend quality time with my children and at the same time teach them successful tools about business, tools they will eventually need in their adult lives. Soon it will generate and income-we hope!

As former Dean, I realized that cooking contains much more than a medium for an artistic expression. Cooking is a medium for Math, Reading, Science, History, Geography, Nutrition, as well as Art.


Kids Culinary Adventures is still growing, expanding and utilizing space in locations over the bay area; from private schools to recreation centers. We serve students of all kinds,’ public and private schools, and families of home schooled children, children with learning differences, and children with physical or emotional challenges. We also conduct in home- private culinary classes as well as birthday parties.


 We hope you find this as a benefit and as a new resource for children as it has become a great learning tool for mine-
