We’re on a mission to bring families together in the kitchen and at the table. 

Thank you to all our supporters for funding our successful Kickstarter campaign! This page is no longer active.  Please visit www.raddishkids.com to subscribe to Raddish and join our delicious community! You can also connect with us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. Happy Cooking! 

What is Raddish 

Raddish is a monthly subscription box for families that inspires kids and parents to connect and make memories in the kitchen preparing meals, and at the table enjoying them. Each Raddish box delivers culinary adventures and family fun right to your door. 

What’s Included

The very first Raddish Box, “The Family Table” includes: 

  • 3 family friendly recipe guides, carefully illustrated for kids, and guaranteed to create a fun kitchen lesson and put a rad-dish on your table. {Panzanella Salad, Quick Pizza Dough, and No Bake Apple Tarts} 
  • 1 skill card, helping you and your kids learn culinary basics.  {Knife Skills: Spider Fingers} 
  • 2 creative activities, with all the necessary materials, aimed at getting your family sitting, talking, and eating together. {Candle Light Activity and Mealtime Memory Game} 
  • Table Talk card deck, ensuring fun chatter at your next meal.
  • Your grocery list.

Subscribe to Raddish for 3 or more months, and you'll also receive:

  • A Raddish apron for your Rad-Kid. (Additional aprons can be added for siblings.) 
  • An adorable Raddish patch to be ironed-on to your Raddish apron.  We'll send a new patch each month -- collect them all!

Raddish Recipe Guides

Our recipes are RAD! "The Family Table" recipe guides are true family favorites: Panzanella Salad, Quick Pizza Dough, and No Bake Apple Tarts.  Recipes planned for future boxes range from Super Kale Salad and Lava Cake to Gooey Granola Bars and Olympic Turkey Burgers. Each Raddish recipe guide has been tested with kids and families to ensure it is:

  • Fun to make and delicious to eat! "It's like crunchy heaven" says 7-year-old Kayla, about our No Bake Apple Tarts, which are made by chopping, smashing, and sprinkling spices. 
  • Easy to follow for both kids and parents. Our guides are carefully illustrated so even pre-readers can follow the steps.
  • Made with healthy, good-for-you ingredients to be enjoyed by parents and kids alike. Our Panzanella Salad, made with tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, and mint is a perennial favorite.
  • Educational and unique. The colorful recipe guides are designed by a team of culinary experts and experienced educators.  These recipe guides teach technique and safety, share useful kitchen tips, and make learning real-life connections fun with experiments, taste-test challenges, and foodie trivia. 
Recipe guides incorporate skills and inspire learning!

Inspiration

Meals Together Taste Better

At Raddish, we believe two of the greatest gifts you can give your children are a love and appreciation of good food, and a childhood enjoyed at the family table.  In his new book, Cooked, Michael Pollan laments that Americans are spending more time watching food being prepared on TV than actually preparing it.  And, studies show that family mealtime has declined more than 30% over the last 20 years. 

With Raddish, we want to change all this. Why?

  • Kids are much more eager to eat a meal they helped prepare -- fruits, veggies, and whole grains included.
  • Kids who are empowered in the kitchen cultivate a diverse palate.
  • Culinary education inspires self confidence, fosters independence, and instills an appreciation of where food originates.
  • The kitchen supports academic pursuits -- we think it's the tastiest place to learn!

Raddish is for You

We all have to eat. Why not cook, and eat, together? Each monthly box takes the guesswork out of how to get your kids cooking and your family eating. During our focus group testing, we learned that Raddish:

  • Is a perfect parent-child activity for kids as young as 3, but is also enjoyed by children through age 12. 
  • Is equally appealing to parents who love to cook as well as to kitchen novices, thanks to our delicious recipes and step-by-step pictures.
  • Is fun for picky eaters and young foodies alike.
  • Makes a perfect holiday or birthday gift.  Raddish creates a tangible experience that keeps on giving, and a lasting memory of kitchen and table fun! 

Who We Are

Raddish comes to you from the creators of Kitchen Kid, a mobile cooking school, which was founded by Samantha Barnes.  Since 2006 we’ve been teaching edible education throughout Los Angeles, and now we’re ready to spread our mission to families across the nation. Though we’re new to product development, the Raddish team of teachers, chefs, and designers has more than 7 years experience leading deliciously fun summer camps, after-school classes, parties, and in-home lessons. In fact, we won Red Tricycle's 2013 Most Awesome Summer Camp Award! And you can watch Samantha as the Safety Expert for the Fox hit show, MasterChef Junior, here. Now we're adapting our proven techniques, engaging lessons, and delightful recipes and packaging them for you.  

We Need Your Help

We’ve spent the last 6 months working tirelessly to create the Raddish prototype box, "The Family Table". We’ve tested the recipes, sourced the materials, and focus-grouped with friends to improve our design. We can’t wait to realize our dream of bringing families together in the kitchen and at the table. With your help we can bulk print our inserts and aprons, order materials, package, and ship the first Raddish box. We plan to grow Raddish to include online content, and to partner with unique brands to send you kid-friendly cookware and foodie products, too.  Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

When it comes to fulfillment, every project has potential obstacles. Of course, we expect to avert them. In order to ship our backers the very first Raddish box in January, we will need to move quickly as soon as the campaign ends. Our printing and materials vendors have been selected for their quality and delivery performance. Once all the materials are in our hands, we'll have to turn our studio-office into a mini warehouse to package everything perfectly for our backers. Even though "The Family Table" box won't be shipped until January, we are committed to bringing families together this holiday. For no additional cost, we will mail personalized note cards to all backers so every Rad-Kid has a gift open.
