Eliana’s new full-color, hardcover cookbook entitled Cool Kids Cook: Louisiana (Pelican Publishing) showcases food from her native Louisiana with simplified recipes the whole family can cook together. Eliana says, “It’s important to preserve your family’s traditions and culture. My whole family taught me how to cook and food is what brings us together. I want to encourage kids like me to get in the kitchen, taste new foods, and learn their family’s stories through the meals they cook.” Octavia Books in New Orleans will host Kid Chef Eliana’s book debut party on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 1:30pm.
A current honoree of New Orleans’ Gambit Weekly’s “40 Under 40” award, Eliana was also a competitor in SuperChef Kids, a national webisode series produced by the creators of Iron Chef®.

Landrieu for her achievements as a young chef and was chosen by Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority to receive an award for her preservation of Louisiana culture. She is an Ambassador for Healthy Fare for Kids, an organization that helps restaurants across the nation add healthy options to their kids’ menus. During Superbowl XLVII, Eliana worked with the Taste of the NFL to help “kick hunger” with a special edition of her radio show and media coverage of the event.
Despite such a full plate, Eliana still manages to maintain an “A” average in school and spend time hanging out with her family and friends. Her mission is to encourage families to cook together and to inspire kids to become culinary explorers. As Eliana always says, “Cool kids cook and get creative in the kitchen!”

About VoiceAmerica Kids Radio Network:
In August of 2010 Perry Damone Founder and Chairman of the KidStar Radio Network met an incredible gentleman with an extraordinary vision by the name of Jeff Spenard. Mr. Spenard is the President of World Talk Radio LLC / Voice America. Perry Damone and Jeff Spenard sat down to discuss a new channel that Voice America was thinking of launching; Voice America Kids. This was the beginning of a collaborative effort between World Talk Radio/ Voice America and KDSTR Radio Corp. The KidStar team consulted with Jeff Spenard and his unbelievably talented staff for several months to create and launch the VAK network with a short term goal of twenty Voice America Kids network shows to expand to one hundred shows in the next twenty four months. We have now met that short term goal of 31 all kid run network shows covering topics from sports, to politics, to school issues, to fashion, travel and even a show that is hosted by two twelve year olds called “Life At Twelve” which started as “Life At Ten.” Currently we have shows that are focused on communities and critical issues that face our youth today such as “Purple Songs Can Fly” which originates from Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston hosted by kids going through life challenging treatments. VAK also collaborates with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children offering a 24/7 on air beacon that looks for missing kids across the country and around the world. “Our Future is Missing, Voice America Kids” is hosted by kids looking for missing kids; to date and as of this writing, “Our Future Is Missing Voice America Kids” alongside incredible nationwide efforts, there have been 14 kids recovered which have been on the VAK airwaves.
