Hi, my name is Liana. When I was in college, I managed a blog for the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, often focusing on the food history of New York’s immigrant community. After a brief stint in journalism, I studied baking at the Institute for Culinary Education, and began teaching cooking classes for kids. I’ve run nonprofit educational programs for children and families, and I’m currently an elementary school teacher. I love using food as a tool to teach kids about math, science, geography, and world cultures, and believe there’s so much grownups can learn too! In my spare time I experiment with new recipes, drawing draw inspiration from baked goods from around the globe, and share my creations on this blog.
