From their beautiful, classic San Francisco home to their loving philosophy when raising their boys (Ellis, 6, and Sid, 4), there’s a lot to adore about mamas Jessica Battilana and Sarah Picard. The two have rich, diverse careers—Sarah works in biotech and Jessica works as a part-time chef at her children’s school, as well as a cookbook author—and it’s inspiring to see how they split up their parenting duties in order to best support each other and their lively family. Take a peek into their home below, and read along as they talk about raising two wild boys, the importance of family dinner, “mom guilt,” and Jessica’s brand-new cookbook, Repertoire: All the Recipes You Need, which—despite coming out just this week—is already a best-seller. Bon appétit!
