A wonderful family cookbook with over 120 tasty, easy and practical recipes from the bestselling author of THE DINNER LADY for all those kids who are hungry for more!

Jeanette provides quick solutions for busy parents who want to feed their children well. She knows what children really like.There is an update on Jeanette's latest travels and achievements, plus handy tips and nutritional advice to help you to change the way your children eat. The emphasis of this book is on the home and eating together - these are recipes that the whole family can enjoy, although there is also a section at the back which gives quantities for 96 that is useful for dinner ladies!

Jeanette is making the recipes more adventurous to broaden the kids' palates so there are salmon fish fingers, curries and fruit smoothies as well as traditional old favourites like Lancashire Hotpot and Sticky Toffee Pudding, all using the best possible ingredients. This book has sections on breakfast, tea and snacks as well as lots of ideas for the main meal of the day. It looks delicious with gorgeous photographs and an attractive yet practical design.

5.0 out of 5 stars And I'd have thirds too!! 24 Sep 2006
I have enjoyed the Dinner Lady for the past year or so, and I would say that her second book is every bit as good, if not better. She seems to have grown into her position. The writing before the recipes start is pertinent but not to wordy, and the recipes are just a little less basic (which is not a criticism at all) than in her first book. The flavours are slightly more exotic and I would say she is being more adventurous. If, like me, you want to create good food for your family, but sometimes struggle for inspiration, then I would certainly say that this is one to add to your collection. This woman is a star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better! 9 July 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Dinner Lady get's better and better! The first part though, before the recipes is a bit boring when you've read it all before. All is forgiven when you get to the recipes which are superb!

5.0 out of 5 stars second helpings from the dinner lady. 13 Jun 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Excellent condition on the second hand copy i bought from this seller. I knew it would be a good addition to the first book from Jeannette Orey, and i was not disappointed.
I'm a school cook myself and this is a big help with recipes that have been tried and tested on the age group i cook for. Also very good for cookery lessons with the children too.
