Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids by Stephanie Alexander
Reprint, with revisions. Lantern, Penguin Group, 2012
Stephanie Alexander's philosophy is that there is no such thing as special food for children: if food is good, then everyone will enjoy it regardless of age.
In Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids, Stephanie gathers together more than 100 recipes, written for children, with simple instructions. While all these recipes can be negotiated by a couple of eight-year-olds in aprons – with a bit of adult supervision – the dishes are anything but standard kids' fare: alongside the muffins and slices are homemade pastas, Indian curries, Asian tea eggs and vegetable rich winter soups.
Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids also tells the story behind the recipes – the inspiring tale of the Kitchen Garden at Collingwood College. In 2001, Stephanie initiated a garden and cooking program in a large inner-city Melbourne school. Since then the Program has given thousands of primary school children the opportunity to plant, grow, harvest, cook and eat the very best kind of food – freshly grown, organic, unprocessed and delicious.
In the same way that The Cook's Companion changed the culinary habits of a generation, Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids will challenge the way we think about the eating habits of our children.
