Publisher Review

"For the pasta-loving kid... My 6-year old loved it... we were delighted when [the recipe] worked, hitting all the right notes - salty, sweet and creamy."-The New York Times "A successful children's cookbook is not an easy thing to do but Phaidon has managed in spades. This charming book hits exactly the right note: childlike but not childish and neither intimidating nor patronising... The design is enchanting with colourful step-by-step drawings. A fabulous gift."-The Bookseller "Set to inspire budding cooks of 10 and over... Shows that it's never too early to start cooking... Just the job for bored children on rainy half-term afternoons."-The Daily Telegraph "The adorable bambino of The Silver Spoon... An appealing idea, sweetly done... Each step accompanied by a charming, hand-holding illustration."-Mail on Sunday "Colorful, cleverly illustrated."-The New York Times Magazine "The Silver Spoon for Children serves up 40 authentic, healthy recipes. The book's whimsical illustrations are easy to follow."-Parents Magazine "In this beautifully produced children's version, food writer Grant has greatly reduced the original into an attractive, informative delight."-The Booklist "Includes easy-to-follow directions for making pasta, which is so mind-blowingly easy and fun it makes you wonder why you ever bought Barilla."-Fatherly "It makes pasta-making approachable, even for a young kid."-The Strategist/New York Magazine Online "If your kids love Italian food, then this cookbook should have them more than excited to learn how to make traditional recipes like rigatone and meatballs or minestrone soup."-My Domaine "With recent releases like The Silver Spoon for Children to United Tastes of America: An Atlas of Food Facts & Recipes from Every State! and more, it's clear that Phaidon wants to build a new generation of sophisticated foodies."-Forbes "The 10th edition of the classic cookbook for kids."-The New York Times "[Kids] can prepare their own simple pasta-based dishes with this easy-to-follow Italian recipe book... Children will love the pictures and will want to choose the recipes they like best."-Pragmatic Mom
