Taste Quest equips kids
to enhance their relationship to food, strengthen their family dynamic, and meet real needs in the community.
Our vision is to see kids empowered to seek out new food experiences, gain new skills, adopt healthier habits, and affect real, positive change for people in need.
Food is a gamechanger.
Taste Quest seeks to augment its readers’ experience of food and challenge them to add more joy, nutritional balance, intentionality, and camaraderie to their eating habits. Taste Quest shows kids that sharing food builds relationships. By exploring topics like cooking techniques and traditions, food histories and cultures, food science, and the environment, kids can strengthen their own bodies and tighten bonds with their family and their community.
Play is the best teacher.
Playful, hands-on learning enhances interest and retention of new ideas. Taste Quest teaches through games, stories, challenges, and other play-based content to achieve the maximum engagement with its learners. Taste Quest encourages readers to stretch their imaginations through asking good questions, seeking out new experiences, and trying things they’ve never done or tasted before.
Kids are mighty.
Kids need to understand that they have the capacity to affect real, positive change. Taste Quest channels kids’ efforts to reach neighbors in need and shows those kids the real value they add to their community.
Emily Capo Sauerman really likes raspberries. And dumplings. And étouffée. And oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with a cup of tea. Most importantly, she likes sharing all of this with everyone around her, especially kids.
Emily brings a multifaceted background to the task of launching Taste Quest, including work with several publications, nonprofit marketing and development, and small business consulting. She is also an avid experimenter in the kitchen, perfecting techniques and flavors from all over the world to enhance her culinary repertoire.
