From School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—Inspired in part by the birth of her son, food photographer and artist Gleeson has written a lushly photographed and illustrated cookbook for young gourmets. Similar in style to her adult cookbook The Forest Feast, this title uses eye-catching photos and colorful watercolor drawings to illustrate every recipe. The first pages explain terms and measurements and show kitchen tools and prep techniques (how to trim kale, how to mince garlic). There are five to seven recipes in each of the five sections with four suggestions for parties that include additional theme recipes. Most recipes call for just a few ingredients. Photographs demonstrate what is meant by "make ribbons" or "cut into 1/4" slices." The dishes assume a sophisticated and adventurous palate. Adult supervision is likely necessary for some—to prepare quinoa or to know how to free the fresh pomegranate seeds for the hot cider. VERDICT A feast for the eyes, with some recipes more likely to appeal to the average child appetite than others. Likely to find its best audience in large, urban libraries and anywhere there are young vegetarian foodies.—Maggie Knapp, Trinity Valley School, Fort Worth, TX

-- the pictures, OMG
-- ease of recipes
-- the pictorial instruction style is easy for kids to follow
-- the prep guide in the front matter is amazing
-- the suggested party themes/menus are a lot of fun
-- written FOR KIDS, not for adults to guide kids (new readers can probably use it all on their own)
-- fun, unusual ideas for beautiful food
-- questionable seasonality (asparagus and sweet potatoes and cherry tomatoes all on one party menu?)
-- REALLY expensive to do a lot of cooking from due to a reliance on striking produce colors
-- not a good resource for CSA-head-scratcher veggies (no eggplant, no beets, no turnips, no celeriac, no kohlrabi)
-- sometimes the prep pics show radically different food from what's in the final dish photo ("Red Salad" shows a Red Delicious apple in the prep pic but a Fuji/Gala-type apple in the finished dish), which can be confusing for literal-minded younger children
Overall, we really enjoy this book, and my small chefs (6 years old) LOVE to look at the pictures even when it's not their night to cook.
Save your money and buy the original.
