The illustrations are fanciful, colorful and brilliant. They track the adventures of Henry in San Francisco and Chloe and Sophie in Paris as they share recipes and cooking ideas -- crepes --yes crepes! (They're more fun to make than regular pancakes and a lot more versatile.) and peanut butter and lettuce -- there's no easier nor more nutritious snack for any cook at any age.
Each recipe was tested and approved by the grandchildren of the creators -- Jerry DiVecchio, former Food and Wine Editor of Sunset Magazine, food consultant and cookbook author/contributor, and Francoise Kirkman, whose artistic career began in Paris and continues today in Los Altos, California. Together they have produced a culinary and visual tour de force that children of all ages will love.
There's much to set this book apart from the usual: an English/French word and pronunciation guide, an introduction to good kitchen practices that merits everyone's attention, a splash-forgiving cover and hearty paper that will hold up well, and an interactive website that encourages enthusiastic cooks to share their recipes and ideas just like Henry, Chloe and Sophie!
If you're serious about food and teaching the children in your life to love it, this book is a must.
-- Michael Pakenham, retired books editor and columnist, Baltimore Sun, and senior editor of other newspapers and magazines.
