Honest Pretzels: And 64 Other Amazing Recipes for Cooks Ages 8 and Up

Overview

Many a bowl of pretend soup later, Mollie Katzen is once again stirring up the pot for Tricycle-sized readers. Her first cookbook for little chefs (PRETEND SOUP) has been a best-seller and kids' favorite since 1994, and her new book for slightly older cooks shows every sign of being another winner. This isn't gimmicky kid stuff, this is honest food made with real techniques. And of course, it's 100% kid-tested. And 100% vegetarian.

Editorial Reviews

Susan Marie Swanson
Honest Pretzels is a winner---welcoming, well-organized, and gimmick free. It engages the senses, teaches basic skills, and makes for plenty of good eating.
Riverbank Review
School Library Journal
Gr 2-6 Honest pretzels " are way more interesting than the store-bought kind: They're chewy on the outside, and soft and tender on the inside and you get to make them any shape you want!" This sentence describes one of 65 vegetarian recipes offered in this inviting anthology of breakfast dishes, soups, sandwiches, salads, main dishes, desserts, baked goods, snacks, and drinks. Katzen provides an introduction to each dish and includes background information, safety tips, and an occasional quote. Lists of the ingredients and utensils needed, written and visual instructions, and recommendations about when to ask for adult assistance accompany each recipe. The author's intent is that children participate in the cooking process; enjoy their accomplishments; and learn bits of math, science, and something about cooperation along the way. The nourishing recipes are clearly presented in an encouraging tone, making this a fine addition to most collections.

    Awewsome book. Perfect for anyone that wants to have fun in the kitchen!

    I bought this book for my 11 year old neice, she likes it so much she thanks me for it every time I see her. Her mother told me that she has made everything in the book and is now in charge of dinner! When I bought the book for her I didn't realize that it's a vegetarian cookbook and being a 'new' vegetarian I decided to buy a copy for myself! I love this book. It has great easy to follow recipes that actually taste good, not just peanut butter sandwiches like some children's cookbooks. This book is perfect for someone of any age that is just learning how to cook vegetarian dishes, I think my husband could even follow these recipes! The recipes are very easy to follow and fun to make. I can't wait to purchase some of Mollie Katzen's other cookbooks!
