Pamela Salzman has loved good food and enjoyed cooking for as long as she can remember. She bought her first cookbook in the second grade (she'll never forget the title, “The Calling All Girls Party Cookbook!”), and found her way into the kitchen as much as she could. As a child, while other kids were at the playground, she was helping her father in the garden, watering plants and vines and watching miracles happen.

It wasn’t until Salzman was an adult that she learned more about the nourishing and healing power of food. While volunteering for a non-profit, teaching children about nutrition and gardening, she realized that there were some major fundamental problems with the way kids and adults were eating and the lack of knowledge about what real food was. Out of a desire to educate families and create delicious, health-focused recipes that could be enjoyed by anyone, Salzman's culinary journey began. In addition to teaching approachable cooking classes and writing about food and nutrition, Salzman spends her time developing amazing family-friendly dishes that are as good for your body as they are good to eat!
