This is a wonderful, accessible cookbook that is a delight to read as well as cook from. This is the case for myself and for my daughter. It introduces whole foods, recipes that are fresh from the garden, recipes that are delightful to look at, smell, consider, and taste. This is a wonderful contrast to most of the cooking for/with kids cookbooks out there. There is no open-this-can, open-that-can mix-it-together-and-call-it-food. There's no horrifyingly sugar-laden, preservative-laden, artifically-colored, -textured, -flavored anything. There's no start-with-something-healthy-and-then-tart-it-up because we-don't-think-kids-will-eat-food-unless-it-is-formed-like-a-smiley-face. This book assumes your child is not an idiot. It doesn't talk down, it doesn't try to sneak healthy food under their radar, it doesn't assume that they are screen-addled dolts with no awareness or affinity for the world around them. This book knows that kids are interesting and interested creatures who notice and are fascinated by the world around them, and how things work. This book lets them know how food work, how it gets to the table, and how wonderful it is to enjoy when it gets there. So. If that describes your son or daughter, this is the one for you.
