A Child's Restaurant Adventures with 46 Recipes
by Alice Waters (Paperback—1997)
Opening up the magic world of cooking to children, Alice Waters describes, in the words of seven-year-old Fanny, the path food travels from the garden to the kitchen to the table. Teaching kids where food really comes from—not just from the market but from farms and people who care about the earth—Fanny at Chez Panisse has lessons on the importance of eating with your hands, of garlic, and of composting and recycling. It is also a delightful beginner's cookbook with 46 recipes that will tempt children into the desire to cook and eat with whole hearts, alert minds, and all the senses. From banana milkshakes and green apple sherbet to cherry tomato pasta and black beans and sour cream, as well as spaghetti and meatballs, french fries and pizza, there is something here for every child to prepare and enjoy.
