Hi, I'm Teacher Kendall.
Here at the Tiny Chef Kitchen, my goal is to teach parents and caregivers how to prepare food with their preschool-aged children. I started the Tiny Chef Kitchen because I haven't been able to find any good resources on how to work with very young children in the kitchen.
I love photography and noticed that the photos I was taking of my son and his friends at his preschool's summer "food camp" were unique. I decided to share those photos and the recipes that inspired them by composing a book called "The Tiny Chef: Recipes Preschoolers Love to Cook and Eat."
When I realized how excited other preschool parents were getting about preparing food with their kids, I decided to create this website and a Facebook page to provide more resources. I created an infographic showing what 1-5 year olds can do (with help) in the kitchen (available for free when you sign up for our newsletter!), as well as a "Getting Started Guide" to help caregivers visualize and learn about how they can include more cooperative food preparation in their lives.
If you're just getting started, sign up for the newsletter and I'll send you a free download and a chapter of my Getting Started Guide!
