Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Bébé Gourmet features] dozens of extraordinary-sounding recipes. Carenco’s Baby Beef Bourguignon, with its dry ham and caramelized chestnuts, looks like a dream.”
New York Times Magazine

“With just the right touch of French flair, a charming must-read for new parents.”
Karen Le Billon, author of French Kids Eat Everything

“With gusto, and a pinch of inspiration, Bébé Gourmet makes the seasonal ingredients and strong flavors of French cooking accessible for every family.”
Elizabeth Bard, author of Lunch in Paris

“The genius of Jenny Carenco's recipes for bébé is that they're not only relatively easy to make, but they're delicious and oh-so French.”
Amy Thomas, author of Paris, My Sweet

“These are easy, doable recipes. . . . At every stage, Jenny Carenco offers advice on introducing new foods, tempting reluctant eaters, and introducing bits of flair into otherwise simple meals. Carenco takes away much of the worry and anxiety we may feel about cooking for wee ones, and replaces it with the eager anticipation over what baby food to try next.”
TheKitchn.com

“This is an incredibly varied collection of recipes meant to establish an appreciation for all types of nutritious, healthy foods. Beginning with purees and compotes at age four months and progressing through first lunches, dinners, sweets, and on to big kid meals, the author provides quick, easy-to-make, French-inspired meals using all-natural ingredients.”
Unshelved.com

“[Jenny] Carenco knows her stuff . . . Her recipes are varied and accessible, many are easy and quick to prepare, even with a toddler underfoot. BΘbΘ Gourmet is a fun and simple way to introduce children to new dishes, tastes and smells, with recipes sure to please even the pickiest little eaters!”
CrayonsAndCroissants.com

I pre-ordered this book after reading "French Kids Eat Everything". It is very important to my husband and I that we raise an adventurous eater. Our daughter is seven months old and I have been making her meals at home. I felt I could make a larger variety of foods than the prepackaged foods. However, I was surprised by the variety of prepackaged foods and realized I had to step up my game to create more dynamic meals. This book is exactly what I needed! It has recipes from first foods to adults. I really enjoy the excerpts for each age milestone which includes helpful guides for educating children about enjoying a different variety of foods. It also includes excerpts from a pediatric nutritionist and endocrinologist, Dr. Jean Lalau Keraly. This book helps answer many of the questions my husband and I had about feeding our daughter. We also have made many of the recipes for up to our daughters age. They are delicious and easy to make and freeze. We have also enjoyed making our dinner with the same ingredients that is in our daughters meal plus a few things that each recipes' tips recommends. Its a new way of cooking for us and we have really enjoyed it. My daughter also loves the recipes as she heartily eats each one! I'm looking forward to the recipes for older babies which are cleverly written to give several different options for each meal base, like pasta or risotto. This book is beautiful and easy to use to make simple, delicious and creative meals for the whole family.

I have made many of the recipes in this book for my son, including the early meals of fruit compotes and veggies with rice. I also successfully made the Baby Beef Bourguignon - the entire family thought that dish was delish! I like to be able to make ahead and freeze, and so far all of the dishes have worked out well. This is a great book and gives tons of ideas for making baby food for 6 months - 9 months, big kid meals from 9 months - 1 year, and bigger kid meals/snacks/treats from 1 year and up. I was running out of ideas and never knew boiling bananas was acceptable, the whole house smelled delish and my kid scarfs down the food.

We are quickly approaching my son's 1st birthday. I had such great success with all other recipes in the book, I decided I would make his cake and cupcakes using the Birthday Cake recipe in the book. UMMMM...no. I would not consider myself a gourmet baker, but I can follow a recipe and have used both "from scratch" and box recipes and had wonderful desserts. I love the idea of using all fresh ingredients in the cake, however there is no way it would ever take 45 minutes for a cake to bake. There is also no way it would take regular size cupcakes, much less mini cupcakes 15 minutes to bake. So, clearly the baking times are off. Also, the ingredients for the cake make no sense. The finished product was flat on top, like a sugar cookie consistency. Also had a very salty finish to it, although I used NO SALT. The birthday cake icing would never form correctly, and I realized because a teaspoon of sugar is not going to make that much whipping cream rise ever. I added more sugar and now have a delicious bowl of icing with no cake to go with it. Luckily there is a lovely grocery store around the corner that can whip up a cake and 24 cupcakes in time for his big birthday tomorrow.

So, YES by all means buy the book and explore the wonderful dishes and compotes. But avoid making the cake - just no!

This is my first time reviewing a book on Amazon and I felt I needed to because of how great this book is. I really like the point of view from the nutritionist and the author so you know both sides of feeding your child, a mom and an expert. The recipes are so easy to follow and freeze and I love how after each recipe there are few variations of how to make it a little more adventurous or how to convert it into a meal for someone a bit older.

The pictures are great and very clear. I refer to this book all the time, I am still in the first few chapters as my daughter is only 6 months old, but I look forward to the next stage. This book gives me a lot of confidence as a first time parent wanting to raise an adventurous eater. I have too many friends where their babys only eat one thing or they don't like this texture or that, and I really didn't want to head down that road. I want our daughter to eat with us at the table and eat what we are eating, I remember eating what my parents were eating when I was little and I wanted to be able to do the same for our girl.

I think it is very important to read the intro's to each chapter instead of just the recipes. The author really explains how ready a baby is for foods that we wouldn't think would be a great first food like Mango and some fresh herbs. I just wish there was another book with more recipes!

I bought this book after reading Bringing up Bebe and as long as you take ALL parenting books and advice with a grain of salt I think both my daughter and my husband and I have benefited greatly from a lot of the French parenting tips and now recipes.

We own several baby food cookbooks but use this one constantly. Recipes are easy to follow and offer a great variety of options for parents who want to cultivate a good eater.

My biggest gripe with this book is the number of editing errors in it. My book must have been a 1st Ed. as when it arrived it came with a 2x3 inch yellow card with editing errors, which has subsequently been lost. I wouldn't mind a few spelling errors, but these were errors in the recipes. What cookbook has mistakes in the recipes! For example one recipe called for 2 teaspoons of an ingredient and on the correction paper it said to reduce the amount to 1/4 teaspoon. How does this get past the editing department? If you really want my advice it would be to hold off for a 2nd edition, or another book.
