Spending time together in the kitchen is a great experience for friends and family alike, promoting everything from basic understandings of chemistry, to knowing how to properly measure out ingredients to get the desired results. Tactile knowledge is gained as you begin to understand how to sift flour and knead dough. Most importantly, there’s the shared love of family and food that comes across as you build family traditions.

Please use this section of the website to find inspiration for creating a much needed bond with your family. Home Baking Association Mealtime Solutions@the table encourages community to build a history of loving family memories centered in the kitchen.
