PICKY TONGUE COOKING

Picky Tongue Cooking is the culmination of 10 years of work in the fields of disability advocacy and professional cookery. My story begins as a young Bay Area cook eager to say “yes chef!” and led me to around the world where I focus on sharing my obsession with food. In-home workshops, private dining experiences, and whimsical cookbooks get the most novice of cooks into the kitchen and sharpen the skills of more advanced foodies.

PICKY TONGUE TEACHES

Cooking For All!

A cooking class for adults with developmental disorders

Picky Tongue Teaches is all about getting people with developmental disorders in the kitchen. The two month bi-weekly program is individually tailored to meet the needs of the client in order to ensure maximum success. The contact with food makes for an excellent stimulus  with which to practice a variety of skills such as cooking, social interaction, and motor skills. The program also faces food aversions head on by building healthy relationships with ingredients.

"My son Dylan has autism. He became more responsible, independent and confident. Through learning to cook he now makes better decisions about his own eating habits. He learnt to turn up on time, follow the rules of the kitchen, listen to feed back. We were very worried about his future and his ability to work - but last year he was taken on as a commis chef. He is supported to be in this role but the fact that he is there is bloody brilliant. And a lot of that is down to the teachings of Steph."
