Welcome to Food Champs, I’m really glad that you’re here. My name is Maria Foster and I started this website to talk about all things food and kitchen.

I have to admit that I wasn’t someone that was always comfortable in the kitchen and it didn’t come naturally to me. Growing up, I would watch my Mom and relatives cook and it was magical but also intimidating to see them doing what they did. Where did they learn that? How do they know what to use and when? I had a lot of questions and never felt drawn to do these things.

Well, skip ahead a bunch of years and while raising a family of 3 with my husband, you quickly learn all that you need! That’s what I did, I’ve learned a lot over time and one of the biggest lessons was that it doesn’t have to be complicated or hard. Sure, you can make it as complicated and hard as you want. But, there are tools to use, ingredients to pick, and recipes to follow that can make things super easy. That is the inspiration for this site, that everyone can be a Food Champ!

We are adding content and new discoveries in kitchen tools, food choices, and even kitchen decoration and utility all the time. So, we hope you come back often and check out all of the new content that we are constantly adding every week at a minimum. Meanwhile, if you have any questions or requests for articles you’d like to see, do let us know. We love to hear from you and there’s nothing more satisfying for us than connecting you to a recipe, ingredient, or kitchen gadget that makes your life better and to make you feel like a Food Champ!

If you are a manufacturer and have an item for us to review, let us know here. Or, if you are a journalist that would like our expertise on a topic, we’ll be glad to help you out here.

Thank you for visiting and we look forward to hearing about and seeing your creations, send them to us at champ-stories@foodchamps.org!

Warm greetings,
