Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
06/30/2014
Organized by season, this cookbook offers nearly 40 recipes for children and adults to create together, charmingly illustrated by Billet with cartoons of animal gardeners/cooks. The recipes come from Parisian chef Sébastien Guénard, and while the instructions are simple and straightforward, adults will need to explain some of the procedures involved (“Shell the prawns” reads the first step for orange soup) and decode ingredients like “tomato passata sauce,” “single light cream,” and “fromage frais.” Several recipes are best suited for adventurous eaters, whether it’s duck tenderloins with grapes in the autumn or blanquette de veau in winter. Ages 3–up. (May)
From the Publisher

“While these recipes would work beautifully at any adult party, they are also simple, fun, slightly exotic, and will expand your child’s palate beyond chicken nuggets and cheese pizza.”
BoingBoing

"Cooking with kids is a great bonding experience, and an opportunity for them to learn about math, science, culture, nutrition, and safety. And then you get to eat!"
The Baltimore Sun

“This book is flat-out adorable—I don’t care how old you are. The pages are full of vibrant colors and lovable forest creatures…I could definitely see my young niece paging through this picture book for hours, peering at each little drawing.”
The Kitchn

Introduction

The kitchen is the place to give children a desire for the good things in life. Passing on recipes to the younger generation is a lovely way to exchange ideas and expertise. Cooking is very special as it brings together all the five senses - touch, smell, vision, hearing and taste. Encourage your children to touch the food and appreciate the difference between the skin of an orange and that of a fish and learn how to tell when a vegetable is ripe and ready for cooking. These recipes have been created by top French chef, Sébastien Guénard, using fresh seasonal ingredients with tips to share with your children and hep them get the most from their senses. Some of the ingredients are typically found in France, but we have included some alternative ingredients in case you can't find the authentic produce!

Meet the Author


Viginie Aladjidi & Caroline Pelissier used to work for a variety of children's publishers in France before deciding to write books themselves.

Marion Billet was born in 1982 in Lyon, France. She studied children’s book illustration at the Emile Cohl School. Marion has published around 80 children’s books published in 11 different countries including "Whizzy Wheels: London Bus" and "Whizzy Wheels: London Taxi" for PanMacmillan. Her illustrations have appeared in magazines and on stationery and toys, as well as on children’s furniture and clothes. Marion lives in Paris.

Sébastien Guénard trained at the 3 Michelin starred l'Hôtel du Palais in Biarritz before learning from his "second father" Thierry Blanqui at the Beurre-Noisette in Paris. He then worked with Alain Ducasse as Chef at Les Lyonnais for two years. In 2008 he opened his own restaurant in Paris, "Le Miroir", where he reinvents forgotten French cuisine classics.
This is his first contribution to a children's book.
