Meet Genesis R.

Genesis R.

With my autism, it’s special to me what I have in my heart. Cooking.


As part of our commitment to kindness and work to create more understanding and acceptance for people with autism, we’re connecting people on the spectrum with what they love the most. In this “Kindness Connection,” Chef Andrew Zimmern connected with Genesis, a young, aspiring chef on the spectrum, for a virtual cooking lesson. On the menu: Andrew’s recipe for Garides Saganaki, a Greek classic. Get the recipe here.
