Barb Kemp is a food educator who facilitates healthy eating and cooking programs and is a self taught home cook who has been motivating and empowering the everyday cook since 1998. Kemp is passionate about food and cooking and believes cooking should be fast, simple, full of flavour and made from fresh whole foods.
Barb took for her first cooking class at age 12 and has been cooking ever since. When she became a new mom, she quickly realized other parents did not share her passion, and lacked food knowledge and confidence in the kitchen. So, she started writing the Recipes To The Rescue Newsletter with simple, tasty recipes, and food and cooking information, to stir some fun into their cooking routines.
Barb decided to switch careers and follow her passion with food and cooking. She took writing, cooking, and nutrition courses - and that was almost 20 years ago! Over the years she has taught many curriculum food and cooking programs: community kitchens (2000-2009), the Canadian Diabetes's Cooking for your Life! (2004-2009), Food Skills for Families (FSF) curriculum and the FSF Train the Trainer program (2008-present). She wrote and facilitated healthy cooking programs for kidney and diabetic patients with Vancouver Coastal Health (2007-2009). She also wrote and contributed to the North Shore Magazine (2005 – 2008), and the Healthy Start Model Menu Recipe Book by M. Broughton, MSc, RD. (2006). In 1997 she started and continues to write the Recipes To The Rescue Newsletter as well as the Recipes to the Rescue Blog (2009-present). In 2016 she launched the on-line course, Cooking Reboot, that promises to turn you from a frustrated, confused, uninspired and/or unskilled cook into a life-long healthy and happy home cook.
Born in Vancouver, B.C. Kemp has a BA from the University of British Columbia and a Business Diploma from the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Kemp is married, has two sons and a lively Vizsla named Lucy.
