“The kids give me hope, from them I gain my
strength, they are the reason I stay motivated,”
states Melissa Sherwood. Her husband, Andre is the chef & owner of MadFlava Catering. “His Caribbean flavors have opened my eyes and palette to a new world of food,” she concedes. She is looking forward to her 7th year running a Cooking Summer Camp for kids. With each year bigger and better than the next, with new themes, new ideas and with lots of special guest.
It is so rewarding to know that...you are helping families get healthier and teaching children life skills that they can implement and teach to others as they grow. The stories from my students both adults and children surrounding food are so heartwarming, I actually learn from them. I absolutely love working with the children. To see a child try a food for the first time or plate a beautiful dish that they have created is wonderful. I am happy that so many of my students and families keep in touch and continue to implement the life lessons we teach.
Whether I am teaching children or adults...I like to make every class fun. I also like to blend a healthy dose of compassion, understanding and encouragement because each person I work with comes to me with their own set of personal circumstances. It is so rewarding to know that you are helping families get healthier.
Guilty pleasure...anyone who knows me knows that I am a chocolate lover! I love a basic Hershey bar, although I am working hard to get more dark chocolate into my diet, for its health components.
Growing up in Baltimore...I spent a lot of time with my Grandma Fran. She had a wonderful garden in her row house across from the old Memorial Stadium and a huge 21 acre farm in Harford County that my father still farms on to this day. As a child I was fortunate to have access to fresh fruits and veggies all year long.
