Review quote

"There may be no better way to instill a love of good food in your kids than by having them learn to cook. Kid Chef helps them develop fundamental skills, harness their curiosity, and turn out tasty, family-friendly dishes."
--Cooking Light Magazine

"I am excited to see a book for children focused on technique and healthy cooking. No more food cut-outs and cute gimmicks. Kid Chef empowers children and teaches them one of the best skills they will need: feeding themselves and the ones they love."--Aran Goyoaga, author of Cannelle et Vanille food blog and Small Plates & Sweet Treats: My Family's Journey to Gluten-Free Cooking

What kid wouldn't want to don an apron, gain a little know-how, star in their own kitchen and spread the love?--Betty Fussell, award-winning food historian and author of Raising Steaks: The Life and Times of American Beef

Melina has written the cooking-with-kids book that we have needed for a long time. She brings everything front and center: the heat, the anchovies, the knife skills. I would recommend this spectacular book to both kids and grownups alike.--Phyllis Grant, author of the Dash and Bella blog

"The clear and concise recipes are great for novice cooks of any age and keep with Melina's dedication to eating in season, and with flavor." -- Design Sponge

"I am excited that all kids and their caretakers will have access to such an important tool for teaching children the joy of cooking. This book will equip children to make tasty, from-scratch meals for themselves now and well into the future, when they are living on their own." - Bryant Terry, 2015 James Beard Foundation Leadership Award-winning chef

[Kid Chef] is packed with all kinds of healthy recipes and culinary skills for the kid who's trying to take over mealtime. While geared towards the younger ones, these recipes are for anyone wanting easy to prepare, nutritious recipes. Miso Grilled Shrimp Skewers, Pulled Pork Sliders and Easy Tzatziki were a few that Chloe asked to make as she flipped through the pages. That's a pretty good sign of this books success!--Weelicious

This fabulous cookbook treats kids like real home cooks--just ones who are starting at the beginning. Packed with bright, beautiful photography and cooking facts, like quick and easy instructions on how to read a recipe and prep ingredients, this is a book that can truly help your aspiring cook thrive in the kitchen. The recipes are fabulous, from a simple but totally impressive Potato-Gruyère Tart to easy tutorials on how to make basics like garlic bread. --Cook Mom Picks

Because Melina's food is centered around fresh, good eating, the dishes will satisfy grownup palates just as much as adventuresome kids. --Milkbottle
