Amanda Mascia

Amanda Mascia is the founder and co-creator of The Good Food Factory, an Emmy-winning TV show focused on helping children learn to cook.  She currently teaches healthy cooking classes to children ages 4-12 in the San Diego area, having been named by San Diego Magazine “The best way to get your kids to eat their veggies.” She also works with the local Boys & Girls Clubs and schools to develop curriculum for cooking camps, classes, and field trips.  Amanda has taught children how to open their own restaurants, build taco trucks, cook an entire Thanksgiving meal for the elderly and most importantly, to be adventurous eaters. She believes strongly that being healthy is the key to a great childhood and life, and making healthy food fun is something that adults need to do a better job promoting. It’s Amanda’s goal to make the Good Food Factory the cornerstone for making healthy food fun, and teaching kids how to cook.
