Kim Kushner

Culinary educator Kim Kushner is the best-selling author of ‘The Modern Table,’ ‘I Heart Kosher,’ ‘The New Kosher,’ and ‘The Modern Menu.’ Raised in Montreal, Canada, Kim learned to cook at an early age from her Moroccan-born mother and spent summers with family in Israel. In 2005, she launched Kim Kushner Cuisine and now travels the world teaching her wildly popular cooking classes. Kim’s cooking style reflects her busy life as a wife, mother of four, teacher, and author. She’s become well-known in New York City and abroad for her healthy and hearty dishes made from locally grown produce.

Kim’s Sharsheret story began years before she knew how connected she actually was. Teaching cooking classes for Sharsheret gave Kim wonderful opportunities to bring a community together committed to providing support to those touched by breast cancer and ovarian cancer. When Kim learned that she carried a BRCA mutation, her personal Sharsheret story deepened, and she became an advocate for Sharsheret and for protecting your health.
