the whole family cookbook giveaway

I’d like to introduce you today to a good friend of mine.  Her name is Michelle, and teaching children to eat fresh, healthy, local food is her passion.  Founder of the San Francisco-based children’s cooking school “What’s Cooking,” and blogger behind What’s Cooking with Kids, Michelle Stern is committed to providing families with the resources they need to cook and enjoy delicious, local food together.  She has recently compiled all of her expertise into her first cookbook called: The Whole Family Cookbook: Celebrate the Goodness of Locally Grown Foods.

The Whole Family Cookbook

The Whole Family Cookbook is a wonderful tool for parents looking to teach their children about having a healthy relationship with food.  It’s an informative and encouraging starter cookbook for families who want to learn more about making good food choices for their health as well as for the environment.  The book is filled with over 75 organic, family-friendly recipes, along with practical advice for getting kids of all ages involved in the process of cooking.

My full review of the book, along with 3 additional reviews of the recipes I tested, is over at Cook That Book, a website dedicated to reviewing and testing cookbooks.  Please head on over there to find out more about the book.

I am also pleased to tell you that Michelle has generously offered to send a copy of The Whole Family Cookbook to one of my readers!

    Nice review, Sylvie. It’s so important to get kids interested in cooking while they’re young.
    I’ve been reading a lot about kale chips but still haven’t made them. Will be trying them soon.

  2. says

    Very well written review, Sylvie. We need more books like that, so kids can eat healthy instead of inhaling junk every day.

  3. Ania says

    Great review, Sylvie! I will definitely try making the Couscous Salad with Apricots, Ginger & Pine Nuts, got the Moroccan feel to it :)

  4. says

    I’ve been so intruiged by kale chips lately. I simply must make them! And thanks for leaving me a comment over at Chef Dennis’ and at my blog. I really appreciate it! You are just so very encouraging to a little ol blogger like me! ♥- Katrina

    The lemon buttermilk sherbet sounds refreshing. I think that I am going to have to try this soon!

  6. says

    Great review of what looks like a book I will be picking up regardless. We’ve been hearing a lot about kale chips as an alternative to snacking on potato chips and that is the recipe I would want to try the most.

    We follow you on Facebook and on Twitter

    I would try the Couscous Salad with Apricots, Ginger & Pine Nuts because I’m always looking for new side dishes.

    Great review for a book that sounds like fun! I new instantly I’d make the lemon buttermilk sorbet to begin with. It’s a wonderful recipe, simple and full of zing! Beautiful pictures too Sylvia! {I got a US address if that will work}

    I am salivating over this cookbook! the cous cous salad may just find it’s way to my Mother’s Day table! What a great idea for a cookbook!

  12. Jenny says

    I’ve never worked with kale before, but am interested in taking a crack at making the kale chips!

  13. says

    I LOVE the idea of this book and of the recipes you shared the Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet would be my choice it just looks light, creamy and perfect for a warm summer’s day.

  14. elizabeth says

    I am definitely going to try the lemon buttermilk sherbert (last year my four year chose to have a lemon themed birthday party!) And I’m really intrigued by the ABC frittata to make with my chicken’s eggs!

    I would make the couscous, but I wish the Thai spring roll recipe that is mentioned in the review was on your page as well.
