In tune with the popular move toward fresh, local, and homegrown food, The Kitchen Garden lets you get the most from your garden and helps to dramatically reduce the amount you spend on produce at the supermarket. The Kitchen Garden is the perfect companion for gardeners who want to turn their harvest into a meal while also seeking some measure of sustainability.
Stephanie Alexander's philosophy is that there is no such thing as special food for children: if food is good, everyone will enjoy it regardless of age. This revised edition of Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids tells the inspiring story of the garden and cooking program Stephanie initiated in a large inner-city school in Melbourne in 2001. Since then, the program has given thousands of children, at 260 primary schools around Australia, the opportunity to plant, harvest, cook and eat the very best kind of food - freshly grown, organic, unprocessed and delicious. Gathered here are 120 of Stephanie's recipes, all written for children, with simple instructions and lots of fast, fun facts for curious minds. In the same way that The Cooks's Companion changed the culinary habits of a generation, Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids challenges the eating habits of our children.
