Celebrate the most delicious season by giving the gift of curiosity, courage and compassion.
Kalamata and her stuffed pal Al Dente are on a mission to learn about cultures through adventures with food. They help kids learn to keep their minds open and their forks ready. And everyone is welcome at our table, so pull up a chair and dig into Kalamata's Kitchen.
The Taste Bud Pledge
"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."
