About Playful Chef

Playful Chef was founded in 2005 in San Francisco, CA by Lisa Ligon, a former high tech sales executive who decided that pursuing the mission of Playful Chef was much more exciting than selling semiconductors. The idea for developing kid’s cooking kits that incorporate life learning lessons came from teaching culinary education classes as a volunteer to 100+ students. It was an incredibly rewarding experience that sparked the passion and creativity needed to create a phenomenal line of kid’s cooking products.

Playful Chef’s mission is to provide an integrated educational culinary experience that supports parent’s aspirations to teach their kids invaluable cooking skills and healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime!
