“Carolyn Federman knows as well as I do that if you introduce kids to real food and teach them in the garden, at farmer’s markets, and in the kitchen, they will want to cook and eat every kind of food. Wisely, she has chosen the most simple yet delicious recipes based on fresh, whole produce in season. But most importantly, she has shown kids that they are capable of anything.”
--Alice Waters, owner of Chez Panisse and founder of The Edible Schoolyard Project
“The best kid’s books are the ones that are equally beloved by adults. New Favorites for New Cooks is one of those: essential in your kitchen however young, or old, you are. Carolyn Federman’s enthusiasm gets even an old cook like me making hand-pressed tortillas and baking homemade honey-cinnamon granola!”
--Cal Peternell, author of Twelve Recipes and A Recipe for Cooking
