Zakiyyah Shaheed, Baby Bean Pie

Saturday, March 30, 2024, 11:00 am - 11:45 am

Stop by the Foodwise Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

Zakiyyah Shaheed is the Co-Founder of Baby Bean Pie, an artisan food company that caters to anyone who enjoys treats that are both healthy and indulgent. Baby Bean Pie uses the superfood Navy Bean in a creative way in order to pack nutrition power into the diet in as many ways possible.

Zakiyyah grew up in the kitchen helping her mom who was a gifted cook and pastry chef. Her mom would bake and sell a variety of foods throughout the community and this was her first example of entrepreneurship. Zakiyyah has always enjoyed creating in the kitchen and she was trusted to cook simple items as early as six years old. Her passion for food inspired her to study Nutritional Science at San Diego State University. Zakiyyah is now a Degreed Nutritionist with experience working in food service at five different companies over the course of ten years.

All demos take place in the Foodwise Classroom (under the tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
