This kid’s platform soars to new heights, one cooking demonstration at a time.
According to Black Business, 12-year-old Julian Frederick is not only a chef, but this kidpreneur is the creator of The Step Stool Chef — a platform committed to encouraging kid’s leadership skills through the culinary arts.
Using their “kids teaching kids approach,” Julian holds cooking classes through his initiative to help other young folks create dishes that are not only yummy but fun to make!
A true budding young entrepreneur, Julian has his sights set upon many things, also providing an online cooking school, a cooking kit for kids, and even a cookbook for children.
Now, he’s on to bigger and broader avenues for enhancing his business now that he’s just landed a partnership with SideChef, a digital home cooking platform that partners with the largest publishers, retailers, and brands all over the world to provide more than “18,000 interactive smart recipes…featuring hands-free voice commands, step-by-step photos, how-to-videos, and built-in timers.”
“In these uncertain times, what is certain is that home cooking has become an essential part of everyday life, even for kids, and we are dedicated to persistently innovate with renowned partner Step Stool Chef to help kids start their cooking journey with a strong foundation,” said CEO and Founder of SideChef, Kevin Yu. “Teaching the future generation life skills early on in their childhood development means we are fulfilling our mission to empower even the youngest of eaters everywhere to cook great food.”
For Julian, his goal is to help more kids to have fun learning a new skill while also learning to be more independent.
“I want to help kids build their cooking skills and confidence while creating great family time memories,” he expressed. “The Step Stool Chef teaches kids to be leaders in the kitchen, providing tools and solutions for them to learn to cook in a safe space with little to no help from parents. At the Step Stool Chef, the kids are the chefs, parents are the assistants.”
Speaking of assistants, Julian’s mother and sous chef, Toria Frederick, is also the co-creator of Step Stool Chef.
“This unique partnership allows us to merge kid cooking, education, and technology,” said Toria. “As distant learning and homeschooling become a reality for many kids across America, these on-demand cooking classes are a great complement to the new reality of present-day-at-home education. This is a great solution for families wanting to spend more time together that also supports kids learning to be more independent.”
The Step Stool Chef Cooking School For Kids By Side Chef Premium is set to provide a captivating cooking experience that will be broken down into two modules: “Intro to Kid Cooking” and “Next Level Cooking.”
