Raddish, a Monthly Box Designed to Get Young Foodies Into the Kitchen, Is a Favorite Among Celebrity Moms Including Julie Bowen, Gwyneth Paltrow and Molly Sims

This Fall, Raddish Partners With Whole Foods and Renowned Chefs Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar, Mary Sue Milliken & Susan Feniger of Border Grill and David Lefevre of Manhattan Beach Post

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - September 18, 2014) - Raddish, a favorite amongst celebrity moms such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Molly Sims, Julie Bowen and many more, is a fantastic monthly subscription box designed to get children into the kitchen and cooking. Each monthly box has a specific theme to teach little aspiring chefs how to prepare new recipes, learn kitchen skills and expand their palate.

Raddish founder, Samantha Barnes, was motivated to launch the company from her experience creating Kitchen Kid, a mobile culinary school with an A-list client roster, based in Los Angeles. After noticing an emerging trend of young foodies along with the serious desire in her students to learn more about contemporary food culture & acquire real cooking skills, Raddish was born.

With nods from renowned chefs and a developing partnership with Whole Foods, "mompreneur" Samantha Barnes is joining forces with food world luminaries and premiere brands to curate unique kitchen experiences for families to enjoy together:

  • My Dream Restaurant Box: Raddish has partnered with guest chefs Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar, David LeFevre of MB Post and Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken of Border Grill to give young chefs an idea of what it takes to make it in the restaurant world. The renowned chefs have contributed favorite recipes from their own restaurants so that the junior foodies can cook "like the pros" but with easy-to-follow, illustrated steps that accompany the recipes, along with plenty of other activities to keep their attention piqued.
  • Whole Foods: Raddish has partnered with Whole Foods for a series of in-store events in California, which along with cooking demonstrations, will also help children track the path of ingredients they are using in the kitchen -- helping kids to understand where the food they are cooking comes from, how it is grown and by whom. Raddish boxes will be available for sale during the workshops and a portion of the proceeds from sales will benefit the Whole Kids Foundation.
  • Season EAT-ings Box: For Holiday 2014, pastry chef Valerie Gordon, founder of the beloved Los Angeles institution, Valerie Confections, has given Raddish the famous sugar cookie recipe from her James Beard nominated cookbook, SWEET. The seasonal box will also feature delicious recipes including Chilly Night Chili and Festive Toasts as well as fun activities such as making a homemade spice rub, an edible holiday gift perfect for teachers, friends and family.

About Raddish: Raddish, a monthly themed culinary subscription box, was created by Samantha Barnes who became committed to changing the way kids and families eat after her experiences as a middle school teacher and mother of two. Realizing that many of her students were young foodies but lacked the knowledge and kitchen experience to make healthy lunch choices, Samantha launched Kitchen Kid, a mobile cooking school in LA in 2006 with the hope of inspiring young people to jump into the kitchen and start cooking! Through her newest venture, Raddish, Samantha hopes families everywhere will share in these simple pleasures that cooking together can foster no matter where they live.
