Meet Faith

Faith Anaya is passionate about food and kids.  She lived in San Francisco for 14 years before moving to Little Rock in 1999.  Working in a number of gourmet food businesses in California gave her an appreciation for fresh ingredients, local sources and healthy eating.  She has traveled extensively, lived in Europe and gathered recipes from around the globe.   In the fall of 2003, Faith began working with kindergarteners on cooking projects.  By January 2004 Faith was certain that she wanted to launch a new business focused on teaching kids to enjoy the art of cooking and eating, and Kids Cook!™ was born.
