The Whole Family Cookbook inspires parents and children to fill their tables with exciting dishes that are still nutritious and seasonal. An award-winning food educator and founder of San Francisco’s premier children’s cooking school, author Michelle Stern has a passion for passing on culinary skills to younger generations.

Now, in her first cookbook, Michelle gives families the resources they need to cook delicious, local, and organic food.

Kale Chips
For people like me who tend to eat just a few too many tortilla chips, this recipe is pure heaven.  It’s hard to argue with eating too much kale!

Bunch of kale
Olive oil
Salt, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Hold the thick stem of each kale leaf with one hand. Pinch the base with the fingers of the other hand and rub them up the stem – the leaves will tear right off!
  3. Put the kale pieces on a baking sheet lined with a silpat (a silicone baking mat) or with parchment paper.
  4. Pour on a little olive oil and toss with clean hands.  Sprinkle with salt (and pepper if your kids like that…)
  5. Make sure they are in a single layer on the baking sheet sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until crisp.
  7. Keep an eye on them in case they start to burn.
