THIS BOOK: is helping me adjust what I learned 2 years ago (but lost because I wasn't able to practice it very long) to our new life situation. I cook a real meal every single night, often stress free, and the kids always eat what we eat. Period. I used to see food I'd never tried as something I never would try. Now, I see a strange combination of flavors or completely new flavors or objects in a dish and I think, "I wonder how this will surprise me and what I'll like about it." Thus when our four friends visited us in Seattle last January, we took our three kids age 3 years and under to the best restaurants for three dinners and two brunches. Among other delights we served them sea urchin, bone marrow, coconut jellied bites, and rich desserts, sips of strong wine, and aromas galore. My kids and I have lost all interest in repetitive home menus and most processed foods; they don't like staples such as quesadillas, mac n cheese, chicken nuggets, burgers. (They do like pizza and PBJ, but so do I!) The hardest nut to crack has been my husband, but after getting this book and getting back into new recipes and tastes, he said he's coming around.
This book is worth the buy for KIDS because:
1. It offers a practical, tangible, accessible way to create happy & healthy attitudes toward food in any family situation.Read more ›
