“Baba Nyonya people believe in creating harmony with one another, and that’s directly reflected in our food.”
Chef Kyo Pang
For Taste Buds Ages 4-8
Kalamata and her friends are practicing a dance routine for the upcoming talent show. But practice is not going perfectly—in fact, everyone has a different idea, and nobody can find a way to agree. Kalamata, Kyo, and Al Dente are transported to Kyo's family's kopitiam, (a Malaysian coffee shop), to discover how Kyo's mom was always able to bring different ingredients together to create something delicious. While exploring flavors that are zingy, zippy, tingly and oh-so-spritzy, will the kids be inspired to find the harmony—and the magic—in their own team?
Special Edition Bundle Includes:
- Signed copy of Kalamata’s Kitchen
- Taste Bud Pledge Card
- Sticker sheet

How Our Products Are Developed
We focus on creating high-quality products that will inspire families to go on adventures with food. We believe these experiences will not only allow kids to explore all the delicious things the wold has to offer, but will teach them to be like Kalamata herself: curious, courageous and compassionate.
While Food Adventures are for Taste Buds of all ages, our products are developed for kids in the 3-8 age range.

Meet the Author Sarah Thomas
Through the adventures of Kal and Al, Sarah hopes to create a confident character that other children of color can see themselves in, while also encouraging all kids to look at different foods and cultures with a sense of curiosity and compassion.
Celebrating a Whole World Full of Flavor
We believe that food is the perfect way to experience the diversity that exists in the world — and that kids are never too young to start exploring.
