My name is Ally (Ayelet) Nathaniel and I'm a mom of three young children . I'm a pastry chef, graduated with honors from Tadmor Culinary Institute, and baking & cooking instructor. I teach and give lectures about cooking and parenting at community centers, the school system and parents groups. I have more than 10 years of experience in the culinary world, as well as editing an on-line parenting magazine and managing parent oriented forums, supporting parents with child care and educational issues. I also wrote and published parenting articles in a parenting magazine. I currently lead parents support groups and teach Parenting by Connection. On my blog Playful Kitchen I share recipes and unique educational tips for parents.
