Hello! My name is Deanna F. Cook and I'm a kids’ cookbook author. I wrote my first book, The Kids' Multicultural Cookbook, when I graduated from Colby College and received a Watson Fellowship to travel around the world and collect recipes from kids. After that, I was a magazine editor for many years, first at Scholastic, then at Disney's FamilyFun where I often shared kids recipes on TV (Good Morning America, the Today Show, Food Network, and more). I'm now a children's book author and acquisitions editor for Storey Publishing. Check out my books: Cooking Class Global Feast!, Baking Class, Farmers Market Create & Play Activity Book, and Cooking Class

I'd love to hear from you, so please write to me. I'm available for classroom visits, TV appearances, book signings, and hands-on cooking demonstrations for kids.
