Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Parrini has compiled a collection of delicious recipes for real food, not just simple snacks constructed from ready-made items, as most cookbooks for children have. Inside, you'll find recipes for minestrone, potato croquettes, meatballs, crunchy chicken fingers, perfect potato gnocchi, sticky rosewater dumplings, mini chocolate souffles, shortbreads, and more. The recipes are truly delicious, and children learn real cooking skills with real ingredients. Parrini includes two introductory letters, one written to the children and one to parents, as well as a "safety first" section and a rundown of the kind of ingredients and equipment needed for the recipes in the book. The recipes were well-written, with clear instructions that the child could easily follow. The potentially dangerous steps in each recipe are flagged with the phrase "Ask a grown-up" to remind young children and parents alike of the importance of adult supervision. This is not, however, a beginner's cookbook. While nothing is too difficult for a child to handle (with appropriate adult help), the recipes are not necessarily what I would call "simple." Parrini warns, in her introductory letter to parents, that you should "plan to cook when you have plenty of time," and she isn't joking. Most of these recipes take at least an hour to prepare, in addition to cooking time, so cooking with children takes patience. However, in the end, the kids learn real skills in the kitchen and are better prepared to tackle real recipes on their own as they grow. Reviewer: Veronica Bartles
Library Journal
Parrini, who established Australia's first organic cooking school for children, Little Kitchen, discusses safety (regarding knives and other sharp equipment, oven and stove top, and allergies), ingredients (she uses whole milk and free-range meat), and equipment. Recipes (e.g., Bite-Sized BLTs, Meatballs, Tacos, and Mini Chocolate Soufflés) feature steps that children can do and others that require the help of a grown-up, as well as photographs of the finished dishes and illustrations of necessary equipment. This fun cookbook should make teaching cooking a joy for both parents and kids.

    A fantastic kids cookbook!

    My family love this cookbook. We've already cooked quite a few recipes from it and they've all been a hit. The instructions are super clear & it's good how there are photos of all the recipes.
