5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious!, 4 Mar 2014
I realise that there have been a number of complaints about this book: recipes are too simple for seasoned cooks; recipes are too difficult; there are no spices; watch out for the spicy ginger in the parsnip and ginger soup, etc. etc. BUT for me, personally, this book deserves a five-star rating as its recipes involve a careful balancing of ingredients, seasoning and cooking methods, in order to bring out the very best in each dish. I love it!

In fact, I think it was worth buying for the roasted veg ratatouille recipe. I've served it as part of a mediterranean-style buffet and it is definitely the star dish. The tomato sauce, which is used for completing the ratatouille, smelled… Read more

I bought this book when my little boy had already passed the weaning stage, unfortunately, as I would have loved to have had it at hand when trying to come up with interesting purees for him to try! Nevertheless, I have found many recipes that both he and our whole family have enjoyed. I particularly liked the authors' guidelines for how to get around fussy eaters - or how to ignore fussy eating, not make a big deal out of it, and to encourage children for the food they DO eat :) Very practical advice, with a wide range of recipes, from veggie to carnivorous.

Cannot recommend this book highly enough. Other baby and toddler recipe books just can't compare, in my opinion, to this… Read more
