We’re two San Francisco Bay Area moms with a passion for cooking, eating and exploring the world through food. We met while volunteering at a local school-gardening nonprofit and immediately bonded over a love of ramen, farmers’ markets and planning life and vacations around “where to eat.”
We started A Little Yumminess to share recipes from around the world, favorite foodie destinations and ideas for bringing up adventurous eaters. We teach globally-inspired cooking classes for kids, families and adults at 18 Reasons and other Bay Area venues as well as “cooking around the world” summer camps for kids. We’re regular contributors to the San Jose Mercury News’ food section. Mommy Nearest, Bay Area Parent and Savvy Source and have been featured in such places as the New York Times, Small Magazine, Red Tricycle and the Marin Mommies blog.

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 eating, 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.
