Pretend Soup - Mollie Katzen new hardcover kids recipe book

Pretend Soup - Mollie Katzen new hardcover kids recipe book


and other real recipes

by MOLLIE KATZEN and Ann Henderson

See more children's cookbooks click here

New hardcover book, 96 pages. Recipes are all in both written and picture form. Suitable for ages 3 and older

Mollie Katzen, renowned and beloved author of The Moosewood Cookbook and other vegetarian classics, and educator Ann Henderson bring the grown-up world of real cooking to a child's level. Children as young as three years old and as old as eight become head chef while an adult serves as guide and helper. Extensively classroom- and home-tested, these recipes are designed to inspire an early appreciation for creative, wholesome food. Whimsical watercolour critters and pictorial versions of each recipe will help the young cook understand and delight in the process. Just consider all that can be explored in the kitchen: counting, reading readiness, science awareness, self-confidence, patience and, importantly, food literacy. Pizza, after all, does not come 'from a telephone'

You and your child can have great fun finding it all out!

About the author:

Mollie Katzen, with over 6 million books in print, is listed by the New York Times as one of the best-selling cookbook authors of all time. A 2007 inductee into the prestigious James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame, Ms. Katzen has been named by Health Magazine, along with Julia Child, Alice Waters, Deborah Madison, and Martha Stewart, as one of "The Five Women Who Changed the Way We Eat". Mollie is widely credited with moving healthful cooking from the fringe of American society onto mainstream dinner tables. Born in Rochester, New York, Mollie studied at the Eastman School of Music, Cornell University, and the San Francisco Art Institute, where she received a BFA in painting. Her classic Moosewood Cookbook, first published in 1977, was followed by The Enchanted Broccoli Forest (1982), Still Life With Menu (1988), and Mollie Katzen's Vegetable Heaven (1997) and others. All of Mollie's books are vibrantly illustrated with her original artwork. Ms. Katzen's newest work is a 400-recipe breakfast book, Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Café (2002), which was chosen by Book Magazine as one of the five best cookbooks of 2002.

To inspire young cooks to explore the wonders of the kitchen, Mollie illustrated and authored the award-winning children's cookbooks, Pretend Soup (1994), Honest Pretzels (1999) and Salad People (2005).

Mollie recently co-authored, with Walter Willett, Eat, Drink and Weigh Less: A Flexible and Delicious Way to Shrink Your Waist Without Going Hungry. She has lectured extensively on nutrition and hosted a cooking program on the Public Broadcasting System. She was personally selected by the Dean as a founding member of the new Harvard School of Public Health Leadership Council, holds a charter seat at the Harvard School of Public Health Nutrition Roundtable and was an inaugural inductee to new Natural Health Hall of Fame. Ms. Katzen has now formed a partnership with Harvard University as both a consultant to Harvard University Dining and the architect of their new, groundbreaking Food Literacy Initiative.
