About the creators
Sharon Rudnitski is the name behind the book and the website titled Cook Up A Story. An early interest in kitchen pleasures inspired Sharon’s degree in food science. A Gold Harvest award capped her publishing career with Agriculture Canada, for a national science program she led for children. Now Sharon enjoys bringing her stories, recipes, and healthy-eating messages privately to kids in the community. Sharon lives with her husband in Ottawa, Canada, near her grandchildren, whose ticklish taste buds challenge her at every meal to come up with good food that’s fun to eat.
The book’s illustrator, Pierre Sylvestre, brings 20 years of experience to his art, as animator, filmmaker and storyboard artist. Currently director of Scratch Production, Pierre also works for the Government of Canada. Pierre lives in Gatineau, Quebec, with his young family.
Vinny Grette, Sharon’s alter ego, hosts Cook Up A Story. He is the 12-year-old boy who lives inside all of us, regardless of the passing years. Join Vinny often, as he discovers a world of good eating, with endless curiosity and enthusiasm. Let’s get cooking!
