Cole LaMarca is sixteen years old and has always had a love for food. This love blossomed into a passion for cooking and baking, and it is safe to say that Cole spends many hours adapting recipes and enjoying the yummy food he makes.

Cole created a cookbook, The Kid’s Illustrated Cookbook, to help others find their way into the kitchen. When Cole’s book was published, Jeff Kinney, author of The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, sent Cole a video. He told Cole he was proud of him for being a creator. This is one of Cole’s favorite memories.

Cole also enjoys watching cartoons, movies, YouTube, ribboning, and petting his cats. He hopes one day to own a restaurant, make a movie, and invent lots of stuff.
