The rest of the book is taken up with Fanny's favorite recipes divided into sections such as "Carrots, Cucumbers, and Bell Peppers," "Corn," "Garlic," "Fruit," and more. Recipes range from raita to Peach Crisp and Roast Chicken with Herbs, and are easy to follow with some adult supervision. Though Fanny at Chez Panisse is primarily aimed at children, the recipes in it are delicious enough for adults to enjoy as well. And remember, the family that cooks together has a really great meal to show for all that togetherness!

As for the recipes, they are great. The step by step explanations of what to do (the egg whites should be whipped until they are white, and you can get a soft crest when you lift the mixer) are invaluable if you are a novice. Still, it's all a bit complicated for young children. I'd say the recipes are probably good for a 10-year-olds with some help. My favorite at the moment is the recipe (and step-by-step instructions) for a 1234 cake - which I am making for a birthday party. I'd never have attempted it without this book and its detailed instructions. I am hoping the cake is as good as the batter - YUM!
Well that made me think of this book. (One of our family favorites that I ought to buy for each of my kids. All three are cooks and good ones.) It's one book my children and I enjoyed because it lead us into the kitchen, and prompted us to get many others of Alice Waters and as we visited Stanford long ago for my daughter's pre-surgery visits ( major reconstruction of chest at 6) we always had time to enjoy food Water's style.
Yes, there is "a lot" of story and good thing too. That's another "value" we are passing along to children. That food tells about who we are.
It's one of the best living histories I know.A window into everything in a culture without the angers that so many other areas contain. A way to share ourselves.
Just growing and preparing with what you have harvested, be it spices in a window or lovely baby bib, carrots, tomatoes in a pot on the porch or digging and growing you are learning about the art of food and self care.This book is so insightful. Nutrition and values that keep our connection to nature.
This is an EXCELLENT present for kids.Read more ›
This is a wonderful contrast to most of the cooking for/with kids cookbooks out there. There is no open-this-can, open-that-can mix-it-together-and-call-it-food. There's no horrifyingly sugar-laden, preservative-laden, artifically-colored, -textured, -flavored anything. There's no start-with-something-healthy-and-then-tart-it-up-because-we-don't-think-kids-will-eat-food-unless-it-is-formed-like-a-smiley-face.
This book assumes your child (and you) is not an idiot. It doesn't talk down, it doesn't try to sneak healthy food under their radar, it doesn't assume that they are screen-addled dolts with no awareness or affinity for the world around them.
This book knows that kids are interesting and interested creatures who notice and are fascinated by the world around them, and how things work. This book lets them know how food work, how it gets to the table, and how wonderful it is to enjoy when it gets there.
So. If that describes your son or daughter, this (or Marion Cunningham's book) is the one for you.
I just bought this book twice in a week. The first was as a baby shower gift ~ the fifth such since it was published in '92 ~ and the second time for myself, realizing that while I had looked through, skimmed and admired it I had never owned or cooked from it.
Several years ago I remember running into the women I had given the first copy to as a Christmas present, her daughter was Fannies age at the time. She told me daughter had completely taken over the kitchen, relegating her husband and herself and the siblings to shopping prep and cleanup. Her brother refers to her as "Mothra" Stewart. All the kids not only eat but relish broccoli and Brussels sprouts and never balk at cleanup! I asked if she wanted help getting her "real" family back? Laughingly she screamed, "No!"
Outta' the skillets of babes! Go figure! [ASIN:0060928689 Fanny at Chez Panisse: A Child's Restaurant Adventures with 46 Recipes]]

The text is too boring for a kid and the recipes are not exciting enough for an experienced cook (typical fans of Waters.). The illustrations are gorgeous, though. Read morePublished 8 months ago by kl
This is such a delightful read. The story is well told and nicely illustrated. I'd buy the book just for the narrative. The recipes are a bonus.Published 15 months ago by plunkem
