About Us
You’ll often find Simran with her daughter roaming the streets of San Francisco seeking out the ultimate food ‘venture.  According to her father, Simran thinks about food 97.3% of the time – it makes you wonder what she fills the rest of her time with.  She is considering starting a support group for Cookbook Collectors Anonymous.
Right now Stacie is probably tinkering in the kitchen, nibbling on something tasty, reading cookbooks, or thinking about her next meal. She also enjoys drawing, painting and trying to grow tomatoes in her foggy San Francisco garden. She loves cooking and eating her way around the Bay Area with her husband and two boys.

About A Little Yumminess

Simran Singh and Stacie Dong are passionate about the intersection of cuisine and culture and have been teaching, writing about food, and developing recipes together since 2010.  In addition to contributing regularly to publications such as The San Jose Mercury News “Eat, Drink Play” food section, Bay Area Parent, and Savvy Source, they share their favorite globally-inspired recipes and family food adventures here at their blog, A Little Yumminess. Their recipes have also been featured in Red Tricycle, Small Magazine, and the Marin Mommies blog and they were even featured alongside 18 Reasons in an article in the New York Times on community meal swaps.

They teach cooking classes at 18 Reasons in San Francisco, Ramekins Culinary School in Sonoma and other Bay Area venues, where they specialize in flavorful, authentic home-cooking; feature family recipes; and strive to recreate the experience of learning to cook traditional food in the kitchen of a friend or family member. Their popular summer camp for kids, “A Little Yumminess Around the World”, introduces young cooks to world cuisines, where they can experience new flavors and ingredients, learn about the cultural traditions behind the foods they are making, while learning a variety of cooking skills. Simran and Stacie also teach about cooking, cuisine and culture throughout the year through partnerships with local schools.
