Mixing together to support kid chefs

Some kids are picky eaters while others are fearless.

Willing to pick up that strange looking dish and give it a try, foodie youths need a place to explore their love. Recently, Kids Culinary Adventures joined forces with children’s foodie network ZisBoomBah.com. Together we’re creating an online space for cooking students with games that make cooking exciting and healthy recipes to try at home.

“Kids Culinary Adventures loves how much information on cooking and playing with food is on ZisBoomBah. And the best part is that ZisBoomBah reaches so many people and we think that’s pretty cool,” said Chef Gigi, founder of Kids Culinary Adventures.

Working together has created a top-notch, kid-friendly online resource for young chefs available 24/7.

“We are very excited to be bringing the ZisBoomBah experience into the kitchens of kid cooking schools across the country.  With this generation growing up with less healthy food it is critical to teach cooking skills to our kids.  Being creative in the kitchen will empower them to make better food choices throughout their life.” says ZisBoomBah Founder Karen Laszlo.

Let’s get a taste of what you can find online by cooking Hawaiian Waffles with tropical salsa. This is two recipes, but they work really well together.
