Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Camberwell, Vic. : Penguin Group, 2006Description: vii, 247 p. : col. ill. ; 26 cm.ISBN: 9781920989491; 9781920989491.Subject(s): Vegetable gardening | Kitchen-gardens | Cooking (Vegetables) | Cooking -- Juvenile literatureDDC classification: 641.5637 Summary: Stephanie Alexander's philosophy is that there is no such thing as special food for children: if food is good, everyone will enjoy it regardless of age. Here are 120 recipes with simple instructions, a colourful layout and lots of fast, fun facts. And while these recipes can be made by a couple of eight-year-olds in aprons - with a bit of adult supervision - the dishes are anything but standard kids' fare: alongside the muffins and slices are homemade pastas, Indian curries, Asian tea eggs and vegetable-rich winter soups. Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids also tells the story behind the recipes of the Kitchen Garden at Collingwood College, which Stephanie set up in 2001 in the grounds of a large inner-city school. It includes plans, activities and lists that together make up a blueprint that other schools may wish to follow. The program has given hundreds of primary-school children the opportunity to plant, grow, harvest, cook and eat the very best kind of food - freshly grown, organic, unprocessed and delicious.
