“If I had to choose the best cookbook of the year, The Sous-Chef’s Cookbook would win the game… The recipes are diverse and cleverly marked with colors… the book trusts, that children are smart and openminded by offering recipes from blinis to sushi and ‘ugly ducking soup’… pictures are beautiful… the layout is unpretentious, fresh and clear, perfect achievement!”
– Juhani Tolvanen, Ilta-Sanomat Plus, 11/15/2010

“Cooking with children is often just fries and nuggets. The Sous-Chef’s Cookbook doesn’t fall to this kind of contempt… The idea of different fonts (colors) is great… The book’s content and recipes selection are commendable.”
– Markku Haapio, Iltalehti, 11/15/2010
“The Sous-Chef’s Cookbook encourages adults to cook with kids, but what’s the best, authors have also considered and tested, how it would work in practice, as conveniently as possible.”
– KaksPlus, 12/2010
“The book offers a solution cooking together with kids… A fun, down to earth style encouraged to take action… Getting responsibility clearly inspired the child…. The book is a decent gift for little cooks or their parents.”
– Emilia Kolari, Maku 6/2010
“The idea of a small child to be included in cooking is bold and brave … Every place was red at the base, but it was fun. The child enjoyed in particular for breaching of eggs and patting the steaks.”
– Katja Kärki, Aamulehti 11/25/2010

Il-Manuale-Del-Piccolo-Chef-coverEppure non c’è modo migliore del cucinare insieme per dare ai bambini la possibilità di acquisire autonomia, divertendosi sotto l’occhio vigile, ma tranquillo, non giudicante, di un genitore o di un nonno. Niente traguardi o gare, soltanto per divertirsi.

La freneticità del quotidiano lascia sempre meno spazio a esperienze in famiglia, con questo volume gli autori finlandesi Koski e Jarvinen offrono lo spunto di riscoprire il piacere di stare insieme mettendo al centro della preparazione i bambini.

Un libro che non solo contribuisce efficacemente alla formazione del gusto del bambino, ma insegna a diventare grandi e ad affrontare la vita con leggerezza, complicità e senso di responsabilità.

L’ho regalato alla mia cuginetta ed è stata felicissima, anche perché assieme al libro troverete un simpaticissimo gadget: un grembiulinoda cucina!

Book CoverMagnificent book! It explains very well, how to get kids cooking together with you. This would make a great schoolbook as well. If you have children or grandchildren, this is a book worth to get.

This book is absolutely great! The recipes are good, food tastes both for picky eating kids and for demanding adults! Without the color-coded work stages in the recipes I wouldn’t never found all those tasks little chefs are able to do in the kitchen. Thanks for the magnificent book!

Our kids have cooked with us since they were small. Pihla was about two when she first time came to the kitchen and wanted to help. I took a chair and placed it on the front of the stove. We continued with measuring and mixing the spices.

It will result in good food and kids who eat better and are interested in food. New tastes are easier to get used to when they are served together with more familiar favorites.

Take the kids with you to the kitchen! Miikka Järvinen’s and Maija Koski’s cookbook Apukokki maailmalla (Schildts & Söderströms) provides you international recipes for that.

Even though the book is written for families with kids the recipes will work as well for single grown up chefs who love to try out new things. The recipes are a combination of American classics and famous ethnic delicacies.

One of the most interesting cookbooks of the year might be this one: the book where you cook foods from around the World together with the smallest ones in the family.

Also the filmstars fell in love to delicious Pasta Alfredo. 26.10.2015

Cooking together is quality time as it’s best. The food is just more delicious when done together with kids. Can’t help it.

Along with the kids we’ve gotten new dimensions in our life, some kind of crazy curiosity. When the kids were small, we used to cook in our kitchen floor. It was just easier to decorate a cake there, for example, no matter for the mess.
