More About the Author

While living in San Francisco, a city so rich in culinary culture, I wondered why so many children were eating strange colored, mass produced food from a jar. I thought it was a shame that a child's first bite would hardly resemble the real food their parents were enjoying. And that so many children are filling up on processed foods and ingesting harmful chemicals and pesticides. That's why I started Petit Appetit, a culinary service devoted to the palates and health of infants and children. I teach parents to provide fresh, healthy, organic foods to their children through private in-home cooking classes, mothers' groups cooking demonstrations, parent resource workshops and lectures throughout Northern California. I am proud to be the author of The Petit Appetit Cookbook and Petit Appetit Eat, Drink and Be Merry, as I am able to reach many parents beyond my classes and empower them to make and enjoy healthy meals with their families. I authored the recipes to Cooking for Baby by Williams-Sonoma, and also contribute writings, recipes and blogs to various online parenting websites (iVillage, Organic To Be, Chic Blvd) and regional mother's group newsletters. I am on the board of directors of Leah's Pantry, a nonprofit organization that provides interactive, activity-based nutrition workshops to families, kids, and seniors living in transitional housing shelters and affordable housing communities all over California.

Customer Reviews

This book has great recipes, and it's well written.

My favorite thing with this book is that it breaks down age and what foods you should introduce to your baby at each range.

This book has great recipes, and it's well written. What I like the most about this book is that it starts simple with one-ingredient purees, and gradually introduces recipes that have more texture and use the same ingredients that the baby has already had. Before each section of the book (e.g., 6 months, 7-8 months, 9-11 months, etc), there is some good information about food choices, textures, quantities, and similar, that I found useful... I have read many baby food books, and I believe that this one is one of the better ones. Highly recommend it.

I bought this book since I was planning to cook at home for my daughter and I needed some ideas. This book is excellent for the following reasons:

- Separates food introduction by ages:
6 months
7-8 months
9-11 months
12-18 months

- Recipes are simple to follow(believe me I am not an expert on cooking and I was able to make it) and above all they are healthy.

- Tips on food introduction, finger foods and alerts on possible food allergies.

The recipes are really yummy and I even tried some of the recipes myself.

This book should be given to all new parents! Excellent organization according to baby age, easy-to-read format, beautiful photos. Includes great lists such as what foods are easiest for baby to digest, which foods might cause gas, and which foods are best introduced when baby is a bit older. Great tips on storing and freezing food. Love that each recipe has side notes about specific foods. This is the best common-sense, organic, healthy approach to feeding your child...don't hesitate to buy it!

I received this book as a gift, as well as 'Top 100 Baby Purees' by Annabel Karmel. If you are considering purchasing one of these two titles, I really like the 'Cooking for Baby' cookbook - visually, it's very appealing, and the recipes are simple - something I, as the mother of a 6-month-old, appreciate.

I prefer this title over the other I mentioned as these recipes stay away from adding butter and milk to baby's dishes, whereas 'Top 100' uses these additives.

Thus far, I've only made a couple of the vegetable purees (and really, it's not these early recipes that make the book as it's pretty basic, common sense stuff) but am looking forward to making some of the dishes in the 7-to-8-month and beyond sections.

I was looking for a way to feed my son with allergies without feeding him the foods he was allergic to. I came across this book and not only are the pictures amazing but there are tips on why certain types of food are offered later and some earlier. I have yet to come across anything in this book that my son won't eat! The best part is now he feels like he's eating what mommy & daddy eat since I'm not just opening a jar to feed him from.

My favorite thing is that it breaks the recipes down by age. Many of the other books just have all the recipes lumped together. Simple, clear, quick, and full of good info.

This book has lots of pretty pictures but thats not what i need, i need a recipe book with lots of yummy recipes for my daughter, this book was a disappointment. It only had a few good recipes and everything else was pretty standard that you would already know to do your self. Mash bananas, puree apples etc.. I wanted recipes that were like something i would eat myself. I ended up ordereing a different book top 100 baby purees by annabel karmel and i LOVE that book! Much better. If you are deciding what recipe book to get, id go with that one instead.
