On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Aurora Satler about how to get kids in the kitchen. Aurora is the author of The Ultimate New Mom’s Cookbook. For five years, Aurora worked as the creative director of Many Kitchens, an e-commerce site devoted to promoting the best small-batch artisanal food throughout the nation. Previously, Aurora owned her own New York City catering company and wrote for Chile Pepper Magazine. She lives in NYC with her two small children, and continues to work as an author, food stylist, photographer and on-camera chef.
“In a society we live in where there’s so many shows about cooking and everyone can go out to a restaurant, sometimes food can seem too heightened. But everybody has to eat,” says Aurora. “The funny thing is, sometimes, my kids don’t like my most impressive meals. There are so many different cultures of food, so many different recipes, and there really is something for any skill level and any amount of time that you can accomplish in the kitchen.”
