A Kid's Review on March 15, 2009
Hi. I am Jack and I am 10 and Jerry DiVecchio is my grandmother. I have made everything in this book lots of times and it's easy and we eat it all up. The pictures are great - it's better that being all words - and the pictures aren't for babies or anything. My favorite thing is the crepes. Crepes are really thin pancakes. I can flip them by myself. It took practice but now I am really good at it. You can make them even better if you fill them with stuff like Nutella or chocolate chips or marshmellows or sugar or butter - you can put in whatever you like. My friends are jealous that my grandmother is such a good cooker. You will like everything. Nothing is gross.

You've Got Recipes is the book I've been waiting for. No grated carrot salads with raisins for eyes, the kind of recipe typical of the junvenile cookbooks of my youth. Di Vecchio and Kirkman have brought welcome sophistication to their young audience as well as a touch of France that will delight my nieces who are already francophiles but whose culinary education needs a jump start.

Using the rare skills of cooking and corresponding, these mischievous raccoons become cooks and pen pals, through the story of their kitchen adventures in San Francisco and Paris, whimsical illustrations that kids (and adults) will love, and tempting and generally authentic recipes despite being a kids' cookbook. In fact, adults may learn a thing or two as well since serious foodies and chef parents such as Alice Waters and Jacques Pepin have "approved" of the book.

Cooking is an important skill that everyone should learn. This is a perfect introduction. Everything--from the supplies you will need to the preparation of the ingredients--is clearly explained. And beautifully illustrated. Proceeding from the child's-eye view makes the process entertaining. And the results are gratifyingly successful. The recipes work! Boys and girls alike will find making these recipes a rewarding pastime.

I love children's cookbooks and a gem like this deserves special note. This is a smart, fun, well-conceived and gorgeously executed book that takes children's cookbooks to a whole new level of experience and enterprise.

The illustrations are fanciful, colorful and brilliant. They track the adventures of Henry in San Francisco and Chloe and Sophie in Paris as they share recipes and cooking ideas -- crepes --yes crepes! (They're more fun to make than regular pancakes and a lot more versatile.) and peanut butter and lettuce -- there's no easier nor more nutritious snack for any cook at any age.

Each recipe was tested and approved by the grandchildren of the creators -- Jerry DiVecchio, former Food and Wine Editor of Sunset Magazine, food consultant and cookbook author/contributor, and Francoise Kirkman, whose artistic career began in Paris and continues today in Los Altos, California. Together they have produced a culinary and visual tour de force that children of all ages will love.

There's much to set this book apart from the usual: an English/French word and pronunciation guide, an introduction to good kitchen practices that merits everyone's attention, a splash-forgiving cover and hearty paper that will hold up well, and an interactive website that encourages enthusiastic cooks to share their recipes and ideas just like Henry, Chloe and Sophie!

If you're serious about food and teaching the children in your life to love it, this book is a must.

This is a charming book. My 6 year old niece and I made dinner for her Grandpa: roast chicken, baked carrots, salad and a mango smoothie for dessert - she made up the menu, and insisted in doing most of the cooking. Fabulous fun and her success started her cooking with confidence.

Delightfully illustrated, deliciously conceived, supercoherently structured, this is, above all, a splendidly written invitation for kids to become initiated into and enchanted by the art of cuisine. I defy even deeply experienced grownups not to find treasurable insights in the recipes and technique directions. But most of all, this is a timeless and provident guide to making and doing good things together with your children, grandchildren, or favored other young ones. Get it. Get more, a splendid gift for children and sdults alike.

What first struck me about this lovely book was the charm and whimsical beauty of the lavish illustrations. They made me think of the special favorite fairytale books I treasured when I was a child. Then I really looked at the recipes and was so pleased to see, at last, a cookbook for children that takes them seriously as eaters. These are not dumbed down recipes, but really good ones for delicious dishes I think kids (of all ages) will enjoy making, sharing and devouring with pleasure and satisfaction. I'm getting copies for my little nieces and nephews but not before I bought one for myself!
