Brooklyn Mama’s Kitchen follows a mom of two boys, Liza, as she makes her favorite recipes. Other Brooklyn moms and her talented 6 year old sous-chef Zach often join Liza on the show.
Liza (Creator & Host) is originally from Saint Petersburg, Russia, but has called Brooklyn her home for the last 16 years. She is a mom to two crazy boys who wake up way too early (but give the best morning snuggles). Liza graduated from Brooklyn College with a double degree in Film Production and Television & Radio Production. After graduating, she married her best friend and together they moved to California for a year. After returning to the East Coast, Liza freelanced in film production until deciding to change careers and go into special events and marketing. After having her youngest son, she became a stay at home mom. Liza has always been passionate about food and cooking and decided to create Brooklyn Mama’s Kitchen cooking show to share with other moms some of her favorite recipes. Liza’s oldest son often joins her on the show. Zach loves to cook and Liza is a strong believer that children should absolutely help their parents in the kitchen. It doesn’t only teach them about cooking, but also appreciation for different kinds of foods and recipes. Liza has always loved talking to other moms about their favorite recipes. She loves having other Brooklyn moms join her on the show. When Liza is not busy running after her two boys, you can find her making a casserole in the kitchen, jogging in Prospect Park, or drinking a glass of wine on her stoop.
Chris (Director of Photography & Editor) is originally from suburban Pennsylvania, where the aroma of recipes wafted down his neighborhood street around suppertime. Chris graduated with a Music Degree in Musical Theater Performance, which led to a multitude of career paths. He as a performed as a teacher of young Performing Artists in the Princeton, NJ; he has managed a companies of artists for a Theater and Opera organization; Chris has taught children of young ages in the Manhattan and Brooklyn areas and coordinated their Special Events and team of talented instructors; and Chris has also quite a resume performing for the stage and on camera. Chris made his behind-the-camera debut with webseries Or So The Story Goes and also appears as a series regular. When Chris is not busy, you may see him walking about the outskirts of Manhattan leisurely listening to music (and often singing a little too loud along with it).
