Barbara J. Brandt, M.Ed., is six-time national award winning author with over 30 years experience teaching, cooking and creating curriculum for top national educational publishers. She’s combined her rich expertise in these areas to create the kind of kid’s cookbook she couldn’t find in a bookstore—one that actually TEACHES kids to cook. The result is an innovative breakthrough in cooking education that is bringing the pleasures, pride and traditions of home-cooked food back to the family table. Barbara lives in Missoula, Montana with her two children and a goofy black lab named Tuwi. When she’s not working on teaching the next generation of American children to cook, she is outside enjoying nature in the last best place – Big Sky Country.
