Get In Touch / About Us

Simran Singh & Stacie Dong love to teach kids of all ages to cook foods from around the world. They also write a twice monthly recipe column for the San Jose Mercury News (“Fast & Furious Weeknight Cooking”). In addition to teaching kids’ classes and their popular “A Little Yumminess” summer camp, they teach classes for adults at 18 Reasons in San Francisco, the Cooking School at Cavallo Point in Sausalito, and Ramekins Culinary School in Sonoma.





Update / Fall 2019  — After 10 wonderful years of teaching, writing, and all kinds of cooking, we’re taking some much needed time to regroup. We’re sending out big hugs and major appreciation to our many supporters, cheerleaders, students, helpers and fellow cooking colleagues!!! Each of you has helped us turn our “dream job” into reality!

We have no upcoming classes, but  please stay in touch for future events & projects:

  • Look for our “Fast & Furious Weeknight Cooking” recipes in the San Jose Mercury News every other week (find us in the “Eat+Drink+Play” section
  • Email us at
  • Find us on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram
  • Join our mailing list and we will notify you about what we’ve got in the works.

  2. Prepared the saucy shrimp in a flash. Loved it ! Can I double the recipe for 4? I used heavy cream and plan to use half coconut milk/half heavy cream next time.

    • Hi Judy! Definitely double it. It’s an easy one to scale. I personally like the blend of cream and coconut milk, too. It’s pretty flexible… sometimes I use just coconut milk because I usually have that in the pantry. Thanks so much for giving the recipe a try. Made my day to know you liked it!
