Thank you Allison Willingham of Midlands Anchor in Columbia, South Carolina for writing this great article that truly shines a light on the soul of Healthy Hands Cooking.
Here’s a short snippet from Allison’s article.
It was a random weekday in 2011, and Jan Pinnington was trying to get through her front door to start a busy day. Her 11-year old daughter needed help making breakfast, and Pinnington suggested that she “crack some eggs to make omelets.”
“She looked at me like I had two heads, and I realized I had never taught her to cook,” Pinnington recalled.
Pinnington encouraged her daughter to invite some friends to come to their home after school, promising she would teach them basic kitchen and cooking skills. The kids enjoyed it, and lessons began happening on a regular basis. Suddenly, her teaching skills caught on and were warmly welcomed by other busy parents. “I had parents coming to my house and putting money in my apron, asking if their child could come over to learn to cook more, and I realized I could maybe turn this into a business,” said Pinnington.
