KIDZ Culinary Academy is a hands-on cooking school for kids focusing on fresh recipes for healthy children and fun food-art projects. The Bauman College team developed the cookbook program along with the recipes.
After designing the KIDZ Culinary Academy Cookbook, this project's challenge was to create an engaging and useful manual for the program administrators. Each chapter contains instructions, protocols and extensive research for teachers. Photos of the teachers and students in action were provided as well as stock food photos. I designed a variety of tables, and forms to be filled out. The clever cover was designed by Chris Bauman.
This handy training manual was printed as a black and white 80-page, 8.5x11 inch, spiral-bound volume with a color cover. In 2021 we will be developing the new and improved KIDZ Culinary Academy Cookbook and KIDZ Culinary Academy Training Manual for use with their courses at: BaumanWellness.com

"Phyllis Peterson is an incredibly knowledgeable book designer. She is very professional. She is easy to communicate with, responsive to author needs, quick to implement changes, and talented at book design.
"I worked side-by-side with her for 15 years, submitting photographs, graphic creations and text for Bauman College and Bauman Wellness books — Nutrition Consultant textbooks, Affordable Nutrition, KIDZ Culinary Academy Cookbook and KIDZ Culinary Academy Training Manual, and my recent favorite, the 2020 Spice for Life book.
"We worked very closely on the Spice for Life book, with many editorial, layout, photo placement, and recipe decisions needing to be made quickly to complete the book on time. She integrated two author's text, tables and recipes, as well as my photos, into the Spice for Life book using her editorial and text placement skills, application of graphic standards, and artistic design to guide the process. The final files got to the printer, along with the online version, by the deadline. I was impressed. I love working with her and hope to do more books with her."
