We love cooking with Food Network Magazine! It’s always a party with them, and this book is no exception! So many fun recipes in here, especially the PB&J cake. —Madeline & Anna Zakarian, Geoffrey Zakarian’s daughters
“I love how committed Food Network is to teaching both adults and children how to cook!” —Geoffrey Zakarian, Food Network Star, father of three Everybody knows I love cheeseburgers. I also love cake. Now I can have both in one bite! Best. Cake. Ever! Best. Cookbook. Ever! —Lorenzo Mauro, Jeff Mauro’s son
This book is so eye-poppingly colorful its hard to put down. Not only is a great resource for parents but also a great resource for today’s food-centric children. The photography jumps off the page and makes you want to put down your phone, pick up a spatula, and get to cooking with your kids. —Jeff Mauro, Food Network star
We kids have our own special way of seeing food. We are passionate about ingredients. We are learning about food and cooking from our parents and other family members. We have traditions and heritage to consider. That’s what makes us individuals. This book allows a kid like me to take her own experiences and explore a day of meals in a new way! I also love that the book is like a test, too. I want to know what I don’t know about ice cream trucks! It’s like a cookbook and a game at the same time. —Ava Clark, Alex Guarnaschelli’s daughter
My daughter Ava is so excited about this cookbook. It’s specifically engineered to celebrate kids, their discovery of gastronomy through familiar comfort food dishes, and learning to cook food for themselves! —Alex Guarnaschelli, Food Network star This book is chock-full of whimsical, fantastical (and delicious!) recipes that will actually get your little one running to join you in the kitchen. At my house, we pored over every mouth-watering picture, marking our favorites with sticky notes—and I realized we tagged more pages than not!! —Jane Francisco, Editor in Chief, Good Housekeeping
Our foodie family definitely lives to eat! And having interesting recipes that are straightforward and easily involve everyone is a huge help! From the Almond Butter-Berry Toast to the Chinese Meatball Sliders, we love the original twists to traditional dishes in The Big, Fun, Kids Cookbook!” —Vern Yip, celebrity designer and HGTV star
