Class Notes

A note from Samantha

February 12, 2014

Being a full-time mom to 2 little kids and a full-time business owner is rewarding and challenging every day! I’ve recently launched Raddish, a monthly subscription box that takes the guesswork out of how to get kids cooking. Each themed box delivers culinary adventures and family fun right to your doorstep! We believe the kitchen classroom is the tastiest place to learn (aside from Deerfield, of course!) So each box incorporates math, science, nutrition, geography, culture and history. I am a huge believer in family meals — no doubt influenced by 4 years of cherished sit-down meals at DA — and our mission at Raddish it to bring families together in the kitchen and at the table. Raddish is an extension of Kitchen Kid, the Los Angeles-area cooking school for kids which I founded in 2006. More information is at
