The2Woodies Cookbook

Our names are Carter and Tucker Hellman (aka “The2Woodies”), and we are twin toddlers who love to eat and travel. Our dad always wanted us to have baseball player names like “Woody”, so he gave us the middle names “Nash” and “Ford”, respectively, after two car companies that made the Woody car so that he could call us “the Woodies”. Ever since, our moniker began.

Our journey of eating and exploring throughout the world is captured in a series called “Where in the World are The2Woodies”. These dishes are a storybook of how we fell in love with different types of cuisines, meats and fish, spices and herbs made by the people who are near and dear to us. We have had each of these dishes dozens of times at home, and no matter where we are in in the world, at least one of these dishes is made during a trip to remind us of home.

We live in a town called Atherton in California, and ever since we were babies, we’ve always had the good fortune of having home cooked meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We learned that with a little organization, preparation and fresh ingredients, it’s very manageable to cook meals for your kids and family throughout the week that are fresh and full of flavor.

We hope that you and your family enjoy these dishes as much as we do.

Bon Appetit!
