Chef Arlena's book series to inspire young chefs
At home, my children and I have enjoyed her books with a passion. Learning about different historical figures, and how modern cuisine developed has been educational and has inspired my little chefs to be more engaged and participatory in our home kitchen. I recommend her curriculum and books for all children.
The illustrations are just awesome. The story is so interesting and engaging for adults and kids. Throughout the book we get fun facts and cooking terms that teach, and then at the end we get a bonus recipe that goes with the story! This book is a perfect tool for little chefs, fun and food! We loved it!
This was such a fun book! The art is so cute, the story was super fun for the younger kids and the older kids were so intrigued by the facts and I learned so much. We are going to try the recipe and all the various experiments for our science unit. We are excited to get the other books in the series.
I personally love her books. They are incredibly informative, but presented in a fun and engaging way. We were able to purchase classroom copies of one of her books for each class, which our teachers really appreciated. Students and staff alike enjoyed having Arlena as a visiting guest speaker. Not only did we learn something interesting about the history of cooking, but we also learned about possibility. We learned that we can have an idea, work hard, and make things happen. I highly recommend having Arlena visit your school to present. You won't regret it!
Chef Arlena’s visit to our school was just perfect! She captivated the attention of all students in grades K-5. She shared her knowledge of food history, the writing and publishing process, and love of the culinary field with our students. They were inspired by her enthusiasm and enjoyed listening to her presentation. I would have her back to my school in a heartbeat, one of the best author visits we’ve ever had!
Our 3rd-5th graders had the pleasure of having Chef Arlena present to our school. She kept the students entranced during her readings by engaging with them with thoughtful comments and questions. Chef Arlena enhanced the students experience by providing a writing prompt that students could reply to by either text or video. To celebrate with the students who completed the prompt, Chef Arlena then provided a personalized cooking experience for these students. We hope to have her back next year to read some of her other books.
