The competition showed me the best qualities of my daughter!
"The Taste Bud Battle is an excellent way of exposing your child to healthy competition. I was able to support my daughter in many ways which made it an enjoyable experience for us both. We brainstormed, we had anxious moments, but she made me proud as she worked in the kitchen."
Abby Loved it!
