Tasting Week is an association that invites chefs to schools to meet children and together discover, enjoy and share new tastes and food.
Tasting Week was created by a group of parents from Palo Alto who believe that educating children about taste is the best way to get them to love food and at the same time fight obesity. You can contribute to Tasting Week by donating here
