Meet Kalamata's Newest Taste Bud

Chef Eric Ripert

Eric Ripert is a world-renowned Chef and author, best known for his French cuisine at his restaurant Le Bernardin in New York. Having learned to cook from his mother, he couldn’t wait to share his passion for food with his own son, Adrien. Every Sunday, they had a tradition of trying something new together. Now, he’s bringing his story to Kalamata’s Kitchen so you can share it with your own Taste Buds—including an exclusive recipe featured in the back of the book.

“Kalamata’s Kitchen warms my heart. Some of my favorite childhood memories are from time spent in the kitchen cooking with my mom. Cooking is always a family affair in our house and these books are such a lovely way to explore the world of food with our children.”

— Chrissy Teigen

“When it comes to kids, start them early with their Taste Buds. Kalamata's Kitchen and Eric Ripert do this perfectly; with good humor and conviction."

— Daniel Boulud, Michelin Award-Winning Chef & Restaurateur

“It's important to cultivate a passion and understanding of food at a young age. Kalamata's Kitchen does the great work of teaching children what we chefs love so much about cooking. A must for every family!”

— Dominique Crenn, Michelin Award-Winning Chef
