"This is a wonderful book and one which, despite its unbearably sad origins, is a joy to read and cook from" Nigella Lawson
From the Inside Flap
The inspiration for this book was a young girl called Daisy who loved her food and was a wonderful little cook. She died suddenly at the age of 18 months and this book, written by her mother, is a tribute to an incredible daughter.
Cooking with Daisy is packed with over 130 practical and easy-to-prepare recipes that children will love, all of which have been donated by parents and celebrities. These were then tested by a willing team of 20 mothers and, their most critical audience of all, their children. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout with full colour photographs by Pip Calvert featuring Daisys friends and contemporaries making and enjoying these fabulous foods.
Delia Smith, Nigella Lawson, Anthony Worrall Thompson, Nigel Slater, Brian Turner, Gary Lineker and Emma Forbes are among the household names who have contributed. Leading dietician Rosan Meyer has approved all of the recipes in the book, as well as providing nutritional information and advice on feeding children
The Isobel Medical Charity
All royalties from this book will be donated to The Isobel Medical Charity. The charity pioneered and funded the development of Isobel, an on-line system that helps doctors reach an accurate diagnosis in children and adults. Isobel is a tool that could have helped to save Daisys life and The Isobel Medical Charity continues to provide funds to prevent medical error and promote patient safety.

My 6-year old also wanted to know why it was called Cooking with Daisy, and was very sad to hear about what happened to Daisy, and had a little cry and a lot of questions, and it's made him all the more keen to make 'her' recipes and help a good cause (he wants to give copies to all his friends). Daisy's story runs through the book in a very poignant but never too depressing way - it's dotted with lovely little stories about her, of the food that she loved to cook and eat with the other members of her family, and of her two siblings who will never meet her but who will never forget her. It's a book that reminds us of what we have, and how we must cherish that every day, even (and especially) in the simple, daily pleasures of cooking and eating with our children.
Buy it - its for a really important charity.
The book looks great too. It's bold and funky with great photographs. There is a good range of recipes. Some are quite simple when you look at them but it's the simplicity of them that makes them so fab for mums like me who are not very confident in the kitchen. Others are a little more advanced but always well written and easy to follow. Its nice to know that these are tried, tested and loved recipes too. Each one tells you the name of its contributor...a nice personal touch. Buy this book. I love it! It's great! And it's for charity!

Have to agree with all the other reviews, this is superb book (though a very sad tale attached); our kids have loved all the things they've made and it's great to help the charity. Read morePublished on 9 Aug. 2009 by M. Smith
