Ashie Bhandiwad, PhD

Hi, I'm Ashie! My 7-year-old daughter has asked great questions ever since she could talk, and I've been searching for the best ways to answer them. I've learned that teaching her and her friends science in the kitchen isn't only delicious, but it works. I want to help you inspire the next generation of creative thinkers in your own kitchen!
