Issa’s Edible Adventures is a way for kids and families to learn about world cultures through food and the science of nutrition through ingredients. Created by award-winning chef Aliya LeeKong. An Encantos brand.
About the creator:
Pakistani immigrants, Aliya’s insight into cooking was always through a lens that layered culture upon culture. “My parents spoke different languages so I was never quite sure to which side of my family a particular dish or word belonged, but everything about food was celebratory and joyful in my home. The idea that cultures can blend with one another to create amazing food is one that is instinctive to me,” she says. Aliya’s cooking style is truly “American” in the sense that it embodies personal reinvention and speaks to the country’s increasing diversity and multiculturalism.
