A cookbook for kids based on the Spatulatta Cooking 4 Kids Online website featuring the Gerasole sisters, Isabella (age 10) and Olivia (age 8). This fabulous cookbook for kids features Isabella and Olivia Gerasole, the adorable and charming hosts on www.spatulatta.com. A cooking for kids website that recently won a 2006 James Beard Award, which is the equivalent of an Oscar in the culinary world. Their kid-friendly recipes range from basic "Mom's the Star Toast" to a peek into various ethnic cuisines like "Yumbo Gumbo." The cookbook is arranged by season and also includes special sections devoted to snacks and vegetarian recipes along with easy-to-follow basic cooking skills and weights and measures.

Editor reviews

Excuse me while I drool over this colorful cookbook packed full of luscious recipes. The cookbook is the brainchild of pre-teen sisters Olivia and Isabella Gerasole who have won a prestigious James Beard award for their website (www.spatulatta.com), which teaches other kids how to cook via webcasts.

The Spatulatta Cookbook features dozens of great-looking recipes arranged according to season, plus special sections for snacks and vegetarian dishes. It also has well-illustrated chapters on "basic skills" for those who don't have a clue how to separate an egg, chop an onion, or measure ingredients. Each page-turn reveals another fun-looking dish to prepare along with bright photographs. The only question is where to start? I just can't decide between pulled-pork sandwiches or some spicy Spatulatta Enchiladas . . .

One thing is for sure: if you start browsing through The Spatulatta Cookbook, you may well find yourself as enthusiastic about cooking as Isabella and Olivia are.
