Kids love the holidays and the foods that go with them, whether they're sharing sweet treats for Valentine's Day, decorating Easter eggs or preparing a Passover Seder dish, cooking a special breakfast in bed for Mother's Day, barbecuing on the Fourth of July, or helping put together a Christmas or Hanukkah dinner. This volume in the Williams-Sonoma Lifestyles series presents a delightful collection of recipes that children ages 9 to 13 can contribute to holiday meals. Holiday Cooking with Kids includes 44 delicious, fun-to-make recipes for dishes of all kinds, from first courses to desserts. Created by Susan Manlin Katzman, a recognized authority on teaching children how to cook, recipes are accompanied by helpful tips and hints, a nutritional analysis, and a beautiful full-page, full-color photograph. A lively introduction explains, season by season, food traditions behind the 11 holidays featured in the book: Valentine's Day, Passover, Easter, and Mother's Day in spring; Father's Day and Independence Day in summer; Halloween and Thanksgiving in autumn; and Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year's in winter. Also included are a guide to kitchen safety and a glossary of basic cooking terms.
