What Chefs Feed Their Kids
Recipes and Techniques for Cultivating A Love of Good FoodeBook - 2012
How do those who know the most about food tackle the challenge of cooking for children’s palates? How do they get their youngsters to sit at the dinner table when most kids would rather play underneath? Why do some kids love to eat broccoli, sushi, or pesto while others insist on chicken nuggets or macaroni and cheese every night? A lifelong foodie and a first-time mother, Fanae Aaron had lots of questions about how to teach her son to enjoy a variety of fresh, whole foods. So she sought advice from a diverse group of twenty award-winning chefs who are also parents. The book’s first-class lineup includes Eric Bromberg, Marc Murphy, Zack Gross, Ana Sortun, Piero Selvaggio, and Floyd Cardoz. These chefs stimulate their kids’ curiosity about new foods by engaging them in the process without coercing them, and their tips and stories provide an intimate glimpse into the chefs’ family lives. Their strategies include allowing the kids to help prepare meals, taking them to farmers’ markets, and giving them choices with healthy family-style meals. What Chefs Feed Their Kids takes parents chapter by chapter through all the key stages of a child’s development and features seventy-five flavorful recipes from a variety of cuisines —such as Scrambled Eggs and Kale; Baby Lamb Chops; Nori Chips; and Risotto with Pumpkin, Ginger, and Sage.
