An essential cookbook and guide for foodie parents who believe kids deserve better than burgers, pizza, and chicken nuggets
Dedicated foodies Hugh Garvey and Matthew Yeomans saw no reason to abandon adventurous eating once they had kids. Between them, they and their wives now have four children under five-all of whom eat "adult" fare and gladly try new foods. In this lively full-color cookbook, Garvey and Yeomans share their strategies for raising fearless, unfussy eaters. They don't try to hide vegetables or trick kids into eating healthy food. Instead, they show how to broaden kids' tastes-and put together simple but sophisticated meals that the whole family will love. From Orange and Ginger Soy Ribs to Spinach Mac and Cheese and Watermelon and Feta Salad, the book's 72 recipes have plenty of kid appeal, but are stylish enough to satisfy food-loving parents.
Recipe Excerpts from The Gastrokid Cookbook
"...this is an essential collection of sophisticated, kid-friendly -- and delicious -- recipes..." (Easy Food, September 2009).

The recipes are good, but a bit gourmet, lots of ingredients.
-That people can't figure out how to steam clams
-That anyone could get a picky eater to try something that even erudite adults often shun
-That shellfish are maybe not one of the things you want to introduce to your toddlers so early
-That there's no vegetables in the dish
I got this book hoping to turn my kid on to good healthy balanced meals, instead tonight I'll ask the Chinese food delivery folks to throw more veggies in our beef lo mein.
A recipe for grilled Japanese eggplant- just cut and grilled and plopped on a plate- worst of all, mint bits on top. It's all green, naked vegetables. If I could get my kid to eat grilled veggies, I wouldn't need a freaking book!
Augh- here's a dish, wrap prosciutto around shrimp and sear... add a slice of lemon. I am not kidding, that's the whole recipe. No veggie, no fruit, a bunch of salt and two of the easiest things to get anyone to eat, plus, it's more shellfish!
A caprese salad? REALLY?
I want my money back!
