Let’s live smarter in the kitchen
I’m Jess Dang, and I created Cook Smarts in late 2011 to fulfill a promise I made to myself over 10 years ago.
Our mission is to help you live your best life in the kitchen because we believe a simple home cooked meal can be the source of greater health, happiness, and community.
We’ve created a range of educational cooking tools and materials to empower you in the kitchen. Below are just a few ways to learn with us and start cooking inspired. Have fun learning – we’re always cheering for you!
Your site has been exactly what I’ve been looking for my whole adult life. We eat real food every night, and I’m proud to have friends over for dinner.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your videos! I have learned methods for chopping more vegetables than I even knew existed!

Cook Smarts has allowed me to put good food in front of my kids. Now I’m a pretty good cook and ecstatic that I get to keep my new skill set for the rest of my life.
