The very first Little Kitchen Academy, a Montessori inspired cooking school, opened its doors in Vancouver last July. We are so excited to announce that the LKA franchise will have three new locations in West Vancouver, South Surrey/White Rock and Kelowna. I partnered with Little Kitchen Academy because I believe in a mission to create an environment where kids can have fun and learn to cook nutritious recipes. I’m their Honorary Head of Recipe Development and Life Long Ambassador.
To celebrate this expansion, I'm going to share the Buffalo Cauliflower recipe I created for the Little Kitchen Academy. With a bake time of just 10 minutes, this is a quick recipe that your kids can help you make. I've swapped out the traditional chicken wings for cauliflower. Therefore you and your family will be eating a flavorful dish that's full of vitamins, fiber and antioxidants. Check out the recipe below!
If you want to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your child's diet, try making tasty recipes like this one where the meal is mostly vegetables. I also encourage you to have your children join you in the kitchen. Kids love hands-on activities like cooking. They're going to be more excited to eat a meal that they made themselves as opposed to one that's presented to them. In the kitchen, you can bond with your child and teach them about nutrition at the same time!

Over the past week on CORA-ntine Cuisine, I got to reunite with several friends that Nicole and I have made over the years. Our incredible guests included Maria Shriver, Sheila E, Debi Mazar, Chef Gabriele Corcos, Chef Karen Akunowicz and the Shirley Temple King! Many of the guests spoke of the importance of taking care of your health and eating foods that boost your immune system.
Hey y'all! This past week was one for the books. Not only did we celebrate Greek Easter, but it was also my son Caje's birthday! I got to chat with some incredible special guests including Cameron Mathis, David Burtka, Scott Evans, Chef Andrew Zimmern and superstar film director Tate Taylor! I'm going to share a few of my favorite recipes from last week and fill you in on some of the topics we discussed.
I've had so much fun on CORA-ntine Cuisine this past week. I got to chat with several special guests including Chef Ingrid Hofffman, Chef Dominique Crenn, Cake Wars host Jonathan Bennet and my partners at the Little Kitchen Academy, Felicity and Brian Curin. There's been one common theme in all of my chats so far and that theme is positivity.
