Publishers Text

From the prolific blogger behind eat. live. travel. write comes a new cookbook for parents, children and Francophiles of all ages. Forget the fuss and bring simple, delicious French dishes to your home kitchen with Mardi Michels as your guide.

Twice a week during the school year, you'll find Mardi Michels--teacher, blogger and home cook--directing a dozen children in her school's science lab as they slice, dice, mix, knead and taste their culinary creations. Whether they're learning three different variations of ratatouille, or tackling quiche made with pastry from scratch, Mardi's students can accomplish just about anything in the kitchen once they put their minds to it.

In her first book, In the French Kitchen with Kids, Mardi takes what she's learned in her years as both an educator and a well-known blogger, and combines these lessons with her all-time favorite place: France. The result is an elegant yet approachable cookbook that shares definitively French recipes, tailored for young chefs and their families. From savory delights like omelettes, croque monsieur or steak frites, to desserts like profiteroles, madeleines, or crème caramel, readers will find all their beloved French classics here. And with helpful timetables to plan out projects, as well as tips on how to get kids involved in the cooking, Mardi breaks down any preconceived notion that French cuisine is too fancy or too difficult for kids to master. With Mardi's warm, empowering and encouraging instructions, kids of all ages will be begging to help out in the kitchen all week long.
