Book Description

From the award-winning and much loved Italian food writer Anna Del Conte comes a beautiful and inspiring book about cooking with children.

About the Author

The best writer on Italian food in the UK and perhaps the world, Anna Del Conte has written 12 books including the acclaimed Portrait of Pasta, Gastronomy of Italy and Amaretto, Apple Cake and Artichokes. She won the Duchessa Maria Luigia di Parma award for Gastronomy of Italy, and was shortlisted for the Andre Simon award with Entertaining All'Italiana. The Classic Food of Northern Italy won awards from the Guild of Food Writers and the Accademia Italiana della Cucina. She has contributed to Sainsbury's magazine and received the Glenfiddich award for her journalism. Her memoir, Risotto with Nettles, was published by Chatto in 2009. This year Anna was awarded the honour of Ufficiale dell'Ordine al Merito della Repubblicao Italiana in recognition of the work she does for Italy and Italian food in this country. She lives in Dorset.

I have just sat and had my first full read through of this, after buying it solely for a recipe mentioned on Nigella Lawson's website - the upside down sausage and onion tart. I made it hte first night I got the book, and it was delicious! After reading through, the whole book is littered with my post it page markers - it is THAT good. I don't have children yet, but if I ever do, I'll need a whole new copy because mine will be falling apart! I also loved how the children's comments were sprinkled in with the recipes, along with their favourite variations of things for some recipes. I'll be making another of the recipes tonight!

Seriously, children or no, this book is full of lovely recipes and you might even find yourself wanting to lick the photos! I would say, they are all fairly simple (obviously - it's about cooking with children), but simple is often the best way with good quality, fresh ingredients.

I came across this book in our local Italian deli and was immediately drawn to the beautiful photography. It was duly purchased on Amazon where it was much cheaper (of course!) and I've barely had a week where I haven't used it since.

Nigella Lawson loves this book and I can see why. It really is one of the best family cook books I have found and the narrative which accompanies each recipe is a real treat. My 3 yo son already spends a lot of time 'helping' in the kitchen, but this book has given me new ideas to try out with him.

If you are looking for excellent day to day family recipes this is the book for you!

Anna del Conte never disappoints: her cookbooks are heirlooms for many generations of cooks to come. The premise of "Cooking with Coco" is to provide a useful and imaginative series of recipes that parents and children can enjoy cooking together, as a team, from the age of 3 till the teenage years. The book is split into four sections. The first, "Mixing and Messing" is about introducing toddlers and primary school children to the simpler recipes and techniques, such as making minestrina, a light broth with pasta, or a broad bean and goat cheese salad, bruschetta and sweet, milky puddings.

By the age of six, children are ready for "Chopping and Cutting", and the gentle art of making ravioli and cappelletti stuffed with ricotta and herbs, or farfalle with ham and peas, granny's own fish fingers and soft chocolate nougat.

At the age of nine Thai chicken with noodles, a meat roll with mushroom sauce and a cream and coffee trifle are all achievable in "Inventing and Creating". The teenage years provide more complex and layered menus with eggs in a pasta nest, a Swiss chard torte, a cake of chocolate and bananas and brandy snaps filled with cream. "The Budding Chef" is a chapter which showcases Coco's greater independence and control in the kitchen. Anna writes: "Whether she will become a fully-fledged chef is immaterial. What she will always be is a good cook, who, I hope, will one day teach her own children the importance and the pleasure of good food in a family."

Throughout the book, Anna provides hints and tips of working with "your own Coco", how to ignite children's interest in food, how crucial it is to taste and to communicate with children about seasonings, likes and dislikes, the importance of the seasons and good quality ingredients.
