Overview

Yes, you can play with your food! If you've got a picky eater at the table--serve something special that any kid will devour with pleasure. Sandwiches in the shape of rabbits, a vegetable airplane (with passengers), a tropical pizza with a smiling face: each dish tastes so good and looks irresistibly colorful and creative. How imaginative can you get? Try this to tempt your little ones: take some small sausages, link them, and create a merry creature with a multitude of legs, a tail, antennae, and raisin eyes. Or, prepare an appealing teddy bear tart out of bread, carrot puree, cucumber, tomato, and zucchini. Clown around with a jester made of fruits--a pear body; legs of banana, berry, and kiwi; and a raspberry nose. And, of course, don't forget the sweets--like a really cool cow cake with ice-cream-cone horns and chocolate sprinkles! Each yummy treat turns mealtime into fun time.

Even the fussiest eaters will love these fun recipes made from healthful ingreadients like vegetables, fruits, and more. Now lunch and dinner can be the best times of the day.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up-The premise here is that picky eaters can be fooled into consuming anything if it's painstakingly carved, arranged to look like a funny animal, and followed by a marzipan-based dessert. While the recipes produce beautiful creations, all photographed in full color, and closer to artistic masterpieces than edible munchies, they are difficult and intricate to construct. Fruits and vegetables are sliced and placed "just so," yielding a "Fruit-Compote Trailer" or an "Old-Fashioned Locomotive Sandwich." The "Veggie Airplane" requires 60 minutes of prep time and would better serve as a centerpiece than crudit s. The instructions presume significant experience and dexterity on the part of the cook, to say nothing of immeasurable patience. The desserts depend heavily on marzipan used as "edible play dough," either to decorate cakes or cookies, or by itself. While this title may be of interest to those interested in food as art, it won't fool fussy eaters. Clare Crespo's The Secret Life of Food (Hyperion, 2002) features far more clever and appealing creations, many with a "creepy" edge that kids enjoy, and Cheryl Porter's Gross Grub: Wretched Recipes That Look Yucky but Taste Yummy (Random, 1995) is deliciously disgusting. Both are marzipan-free.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
