What Chefs Feed Their Kids
Recipes and Techniques for Cultivating A Love of Good Food
How chefs make food an adventure for their kids--and you can, too! How do the people who know the most about food tackle the special challenges of cooking for children's palates? How do they get their children to join them at the dinner table when most kids would rather play under the tablecloth? Why do some kids love to eat broccoli, sushi, or pesto while others insist on chicken nuggets 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 out 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 they share their tips and stories, which provide an intimate glimpse into the chefs' family lives. Chefs' strategies include allowing their kids to help prepare meals, taking them to farmers' markets, and giving them choices with healthy family style meals. "What Chefs Feed Their Kids" also features seventy-five flavorful recipes--such as Kale and Scrambed Eggs, Baby Lamb Chops, Nori Chips, and Risotto with Pumpkin, Ginger, and Sage--from a variety of cuisines.
