This is a really cute book, contains easy to follow recipies for younger and older children. I have used the potato soup recipe many times with a blender! It is decorated with the illustrations from the classic Peter Rabbit story books. It was published in hardcover and softbound editions.

I had this book as a child and it was destroyed in a flood. I was thrilled to find it online, especially since it is no longer in print. This seller delivered! The description was accurate, delivery was fast, and I am perfectly happy with this whole experience. Finally I am able to make awesome blueberry cobbler again.

"Peter Rabbit's Natural Foods Cookbook" offers 108 pages of delight: delight in the illustrations from Beatrix Potter, delight in the child-friendly recipes, and delight in being able to make soups, salads, sandwiches, breads and desserts of mostly natural ingredients with much flavor & little fuss.

WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT

Nostalgia for the older chef, new memories for the younger, and simple, nourishing & tasty recipes. Published in 1977, this book seems as charming as 1900 and as fresh as tomorrow. The six sections include

--breakfast and breads
--sandwiches
--vegetables
--salads
--soups
--desserts

Each recipe is named after a Beatrix Potter character, such as (in breakfast and breads)

--Samuel Whiskers' roly poly pancakes
--Timmy Willy's sunny Sunday scrambled eggs
--Squirrrel Nutkin's banana nut loaf
--Pigling and Pigwig's hot rice breakfast treat
--Johnny Townmouse's granola
--Tommy Brock and Mr Tod's wheat germ muffins

THE RECIPES

The recipes are well organized with each listing equipment needed, ingredients, and preparation. Many have additions that may broaden young tastes, such a splash of lemon and fresh herbs. The recipes are sweeter than carbohydrate conscious cooks might prefer, but these are typically natural sugars such as honey and some recipe adjustments (except for the baked goodies) seem possible.

On the nutritionally positive side, wheat germ, yogurt, and healthy ingredients such as whole wheat flour appear often.

I enjoyed just reading this book. It was fun to use when cooking with the 8 to 12 year olds, and seeing how the names made for remembering which books told their story.

I love the fresh food recipes in this book. I plan on using this book with my grandchildren. The illustrations add charm.

Peter Rabbit's Natural Foods Cookbook is out-of-print, but if you search carefully for a 'like new' gently used copy, it's worth it, for the recipes as well as for Beatrix Potter's illustrations on the cover and in the text, in colour as well as black-and-white. My copy was a 'like-new' copy from a bookstore liquidation, and came triple-wrapped!

This is a natural and vegetarian cookbook, with eggs, dairy, and cheese used--there is NO meat in any of these recipes, so wabbit-hunters, take note! (But you can toss some cooked, sliced chicken breast, cooked shrimp, or bacon bits into many of the salads if you MUST have meat!)

The recipes, instructions and text are written for children aged 8 to 12 years, as opposed to very young children. (I've found another Peter Rabbit themed cookery book targeted for children aged 4 to 8, but with very British measurements and kitchen instructions.) I haven't made any of the recipes from Peter Rabbit's Natural Foods Cookbook yet (I just got the book on 7/17/13), but looking through it, I'd guess about half of the recipes use fresh, raw vegetables. Cooked eggs and the most commonly available dairy products are also used--butter or margarine, cream cheese, cottage cheese, and sour cream; NUTS are also used, with peanuts used most often.
