Let’s create the next generation of curious, courageous and compassionate eaters together.
Kalamata and her stuffed pal Al Dente are on a mission to experience the whole wide world through adventures with food. They help kids learn to keep their minds open and their forks ready. And everyone is welcome at the table, so pull up a chair and dig in to Kalamata’s Kitchen.

"I promise to keep my mind open and my fork ready, to try each new food at least two times and share what's on my plate when someone doesn't have enough."
