About Me


Rachel Smith, HHC Certified Instructor

I am a Certified Healthy Hands Cooking Instructor and owner of Rise, Shine & Cook, LLC. I have a passion for healthy home cooking and mindful eating that has developed since I was a young child. My love for cooking with kids started as my own daughter became curious about the foods I prepare for our family.

I started teaching her at a very young age how to use various kitchen tools, make conscious food choices at the grocery store and menu plan with what we have on hand in our fridge and pantry. She is now more involved in the meals I prepare for our family and I know these skills will stay with her as she grows up. 

I would love to foster this love for healthy eating in your family too!


Rise, Shine & Cook Class Offerings:

Rise, Shine & Cook, LLC was established as a mobile cooking school in 2019,  bringing a variety of Healthy Hands Cooking workshops, camps and party options to children and their parents throughout Montgomery County, Maryland. 

Our focus is on ages 2-8 with theme-based parent and me classes for the youngest learners and workshops for young elementary school-aged children that include a nutrition game or activity followed by hands-on cooking lessons. 

We have options for a unique and healthy birthday party for your aspiring chef and also offer specialty classes and parties featuring Butterbean’s Café® from Nick Jr.®.

All classes are developed to teach your child about nutrition and healthy cooking with fun and games, food prepping and cooking, and of course tasting our delicious creations! 

As a mobile business, I am here to meet your location needs anywhere in Montgomery County and am available for instruction at your home, school, community center, special event, scout troop clubhouse, etc. Classes for individual students are scheduled throughout the year. Register for an upcoming class here!

Please reach out to RiseShineandCook@gmail.com if you are interested in requesting a private group class or special event. Also please contact us if there is interest in a class that isn't on the schedule yet.   

I look forward to cooking with you soon!
