Presented in a striking, beautiful format, Erin Gleenson’s 40 recipes offer kids a free-spirited approach to cooking that is also well-suited to those who prefer images to reading.
As the accompanying photos make clear, Forest Feast for Kids presents its recipes with a minimum of text and an emphasis on succinct practical demonstration. Gleeson, who does her own photography, seeks to inspire young cooks through her carefully composed layouts of ingredients and finished dishes. And whether you’re buying for a young vegetarian, or seeking to reform a reluctant vegetable eater, there is plenty of inspiration to be had here: a curly kale and curly pasta salad with pesto and pecans; rainbow chard quiche; pesto pepper pizza; rosemary shortbread cookies.
Note that in order to make the recipes as easy as possible, Gleeson suggest the use of store-bought doughs and sauces in some cases.
