Clare Crespo is the type of person I would love to meet for a cup of coffee. She inspires my daughter and myself with Yummyfun Kooking, a cooking show for kids. She had a cushiony job but left it to follow her dream and start YummyFun Kooking. My daughter (almost 5) is gaga over it, and yes, I admit, I love to watch it too. Ella sits on the couch, watches Clare’s DVDs and looks up the recipe in her cookbook, The Secret Life of Food, while doing so. As a result, my daughter is all about cooking now! I’ve had some email exchanges with Clare and she sounds as warm and bubbly in her emails as she comes across in her show.
Two thumbs up for Clare and for what she’s created. Need a gift for a youngster? Consider the DVDs or the Kooking Club Subscription. Every month the subscriber receives 3 recipes which he can store in his Yummyfun Kooking club recipe box. And besides other stuff, he’ll receive the Yummyfun Kooking mixing spoon. My daughter sleeps with it, next to her bed. Yes, she is *that* into it.

Oh my! This reminds me of Thu Tran’s Food Party… Though I think this is much more appropriate for younger ages. Awesome that your daughter wants to cook now, though :D

I agree with Laurens, this show would probably give me nightmares (as an adult). It’s very well made and creative but feels also very sinister. And I do wish she didn’t misspell “Cooking”.
It’s great to hear your daughter loves it though, and cooks. She may enjoy this book: http://www.amazon.com/Play-Your-Food-Joost-Elffers/dp/1556706308

My little ones love Martha Stewart, and this show is like Martha + Mr. Rogers Neighborhood and a dash of H.R. Puff n Stuff on LSD, but in a good way.

It’s like what would happen if the Martha Stewart show made a baby with the Pee-Wee Herman Show!

Clare is like a lady Willy Wonka–my little ones adore her and anything she makes. If you’re lucky enough to be in LA when she does her guerilla pop-up bakery called “Treat Street” you’ll know exactly why.
