Global Cooking for Kids with Rowena Scherer
I think most of us can agree we want to raise good eaters- and hopefully, kids who want to get in the kitchen and cook, too. Today’s guest is all about bringing kids in the kitchen, exploring global cuisines and introducing kids to new flavors and cultures.
Rowena Scherer grew up in Malaysia and her fondest memories are from when she cooked in the kitchen with her family. Years later, after working on Wall Street and living all over the world, she decided she wanted to create the same lasting memories with her children. She attended the French Culinary Institute, began to source hard-to-find non-perishable ingredients that highlighted her cherished foods, and started eat2explore, an explorer box filled with authentic recipes, activities, and collectibles that offered a worldwide cultural education through the exploration of food.
In today’s episode we talk about Rowena’s story of getting started cooking with her own mom, to her inspiration to teach her kids to cook- and what they cook now as young adults- how to get your kids in the kitchen from an early age, the importance of introducing kids to global cuisine and how cooking can bring us together as a family.
As a quick note, we did have some audio issues on and off during this episode, I unfortunately had some internet connection issues so we had some lag on on our audio, I did my best to edit- but if we occasionally talk over each other or there’s a funny sound here or there, that’s what happened- I think our conversation is well worth the occasional audio mishap!
