Creating Connection Through Food

Welcome to The Connected Chef!

We believe in  a world where people have a direct connection to where and how their food is grown.

A world where all adults have the time and space to connect with their children about the deeper issues of compassion and care for each other.

Eating healthy should no longer be something to strive for and should be a foundation for every community.

What People Are Saying

My whole family absolutely adored Kim's cooking classes.

My 2.5 yr old had a fantastic time and built the skills and confidence to go from being a distraction in the kitchen to being super helpful cutting up ingredients and following steps! And although I knew she would love the classes the even bigger surprise was my husband! Who is terrified of cooking and is usually super intimidated by classes and he could not stop talking about how much fun he had and how inspired he was. We really did connect over this experience and cannot recommend enough anything that Kim puts her heart and mind towards, it is guaranteed to be a success.

~Benedetta Piantella

My daughter almost automatically started eating better as she became more involved.

And one of the best things for me is that cooking has become easier as my skills have improved and we have scheduled our time better.
