Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“What makes ChopChop so great is not only Sampson’s choice of subject, appealing and respectful design and language, bright colors and surprisingly sophisticated food photography; it’s her (and her editors’) choice of recipes. . . . Sampson [is] doing preventive medicine. Because cooking reduces obesity and reducing obesity reduces disease.”

ChopChop is introducing a generation of children (and their parents) to cooking, establishing a healthy lifestyle from the start. Keep a copy in your kitchen.”

“[ChopChop] is ideal. It has lively graphics, a bright (but not saccharine) tone, and modern, realistic recipes.”

The New York Times - Mark Bittman

“Plant the seeds of cooking enthusiasm in the young, and give them the gift of a lifetime. ChopChop imparts the joy of kitchen fluency to our next generation with a crisp, inviting design, an inspiring, encouraging voice, and broadly appealing recipes.”
author of Rin Tin Tin and Throw Me a Bone - Susan Orlean
ChopChop has made my son love math (measuring ingredients); chemistry (that’s cooking!) and good, nutritious food. Most of all, he loves the spirit that ChopChop embodies: Intelligent, healthy fun. It’s wonderful.”
The Atlantic - Corby Kummer
"Sampson has solved a puzzle everyone talks about—how to make children and families cook—by being truly cross-cultural, practical, explicit, and never patronizing."
