The Silver Spoon is a 50-plus-year-old, thousand-page international best-seller that has been called the Italian Joy of Cooking. In this beautifully produced children’s version, food writer Grant has greatly reduced the original into an attractive, informative delight. Refreshingly free from overly cutesy language and images (no cloying puns; no meals shaped into animals), this is a title aimed at kids with a serious interest in food, and in this age of Food Network popularity, when grade-schoolers have won James Beard awards, that’s a growing audience. The recipes, drawn straight from the original, have been broken out into clearly explained steps, each illustrated with Russell’s whimsical drawings on uncluttered pages that include color photos of the finished dishes, which are divided into basic categories, from lunches and snacks to desserts. The focus is on Italian food, of course, but the helpful tips on basic safety and techniques, such as chopping an onion, make this a universal introduction to the kitchen that may also attract grown-ups seeking a less muscle-straining edition of the adult tome. Grades 4-8. --Gillian Engberg

The book is large 11"x 10" so it is easy to read and lays well on a counter or a cookbook stand.
It contains lunches and snacks, pasta and pizza, main course and desserts and baking. There are sections showing cooking techniques and safety tips. There is no index, but that does not really seem to be a problem.
The recipes are good, what child wouldn't be proud to make risotto, or even know how to make fresh pasta. The age level is listed at 9-10 and depending on expertise would even be a book for those that are older and just learning how to cook. Just really a grand idea and resulting cookbook for young future chefs.
