Kidding Around the Kitchen
Though Lisa Fontanesi originally learned to cook and bake in her grandmother’s kitchen, she discovered her true culinary talent when asked at the last minute to cater a dinner for 150 guests—without using recipes. The mother of two channels this talent into her television show, Kidding Around the Kitchen, which demonstrates recipes that can be prepared by kids as young as 5, preventing families from enduring another night of little Jenny's ice-cream lasagna.
The show spawned a spiral-bound cookbook with 70 kid-friendly recipes accompanied by pictures, simple cooking instructions, and shopping tips. Lisa also showcases her culinary enthusiasm during afterschool cooking classes and workshops that cater to students in grades K–8 and their families.
