Meet The Owner, Susan McWhirter


As I was looking at reentering the workforce, after the birth of my second child, I knew I wanted to find a way to involve my children in my work. I began thinking about my favorite time spent with my kids, family, and friends and it is almost always around a meal in our kitchen. Taste Buds Kitchen gave me the ability to offer State College a way to connect with loved ones through the love of food. It has been such a joy cooking with our community - from classes for kids, adults, and families we strive to connect, engage, and inspire. Outside of the kitchen, my favorite time is spent with my children, hiking and skiing through Centre Counties beautiful trails with my fiance, Christopher and our dogs, and volunteering in our community.
