“Adventure is worthwhile in itself” – Amelia Earhart
At The Gingered Whisk, we create recipes to inspire your whole family to become more adventurous in their eating habits. In addition to this, we share tips on how to raise kids who love to eat, how to make good food and how to create your own foodie family.
We’re all about flavor, variety and real foods here. (So let’s skip the chicken nuggets, mmkay?)
Our goal is to empower parents and their children to enjoy the abundant and varied foods our world has to offer.
Great tasting food and the experiences it creates are so important in raising well-balanced children, as well as raising kids who have a healthy relationship with food. A global diet also assists children to look at the world with excitement and curiosity.
I want to help you break out of your daily dinnertime struggle–from the preparation to getting the kids to actually try a small bite and to discovering new recipes that aren’t boring or bland.
I want you to feel excitement about your food; and I want you to be proud of your family’s adventurousness.
With my three daughters, I’ve put this mindset in order in our home, and the girls are eating (or at least trying a bite!) of all the new things. Because through familiar elements and the correct vocabulary, you can get your kids to do this, too.
Together we will:
- Explore cultural recipes, flavors, and ingredients from around the world.
- Discover new family favorite weeknight meals that are easy and healthy.
- Go on Culinary Adventures inspired to create foodies out of your whole family.
Great tasting food and the experiences it creates are so important–not only to raise well-balanced children, but to raise children who have a healthy relationship with food, as well as look at the world with excitement and curiosity. To me, there is nothing better than creating an amazing meal and sharing it with the people you love.
While you won’t find any elaborately constructed, whimsically cute plates here, you will find tons of creative recipes designed to inspire your family’s palate, cultivate an adventuresome spirit, and help you create your own foodie family!
