I’m Liz Phillips, and I’ve been helping kids find their way around the kitchen for 8 years. I have a particular interest in food science and mindful but joyful eating. I’m also an award-winning food writer whose work appears regularly in Memphis Parent and Edible Memphis.

In previous lives, I’ve been an English teacher and a film editor; by day I’m a librarian. I have two sons who eat most of what I cook and a dog who’ll eat anything I drop on the floor.

For my camps, cooking experience is not necessary, but enthusiastic interest is. At Kids Cook Memphis, I introduce young people to the process of preparing home-cooked food. Because I teach basic, real-world skills, my kids’ cooking classes are unique in the Memphis area. I also teach at-home workshops on request for adults and kids, on topics from pantry and holiday planning to canning.

My goals for my students? Competence, an appreciation for the food they eat at home, and the joy and satisfaction that come from serving a meal prepared with care and love.

Day camps will be presented at St Mary’s Episcopal Church on Poplar in downtown Memphis in the crypt kitchen.
