Hi, my name is Liana. I’m an elementary school teacher and cooking/baking instructor for kids. In my spare time, I develop new recipes inspired by baking traditions from around the globe, and write about them here and in The Knockturnal. I studied baking at the Institute for Culinary Education in New York, and have a master’s degree in Childhood Education. I’ve directed nonprofit educational programs for children and families, including a summer camp that fostered respect for different cultures through cooking, baking, and food writing. I’m passionate about teaching kids about the world through food, and love sharing recipes, baked goods, and cooking tips with people of all ages!
