I had a wonderful day in the kitchen with my best friend and her daughter, who is nine, making recipes from this book. Both the simple macarons and the cheesy pasta bake were easy to make and really delicious. The recipes were kid-friendly and it was a great way to have an interactive day together where we were all learning a few new things. I think the food tasted even better because we'd worked together to make it!

Prior to receiving Mardi Michels' book In the French Kitchen with Kids from the publisher I couldn't think of anything less daunting than French cuisine. Maybe it's because the final results look so complex and elegant (hello croissants I'm look at you!) that I never believed I could master those recipes let alone teach my (or anyone's kid) to cook French recipes. Embarrassingly I do own cookbooks that are dedicated to French cooking and baking that I've never cooked from so what is it about Mar ...more

Tonight I made Pork Chops with Apples from the great cookbook "in the french kitchen with kids" by Mardi Michels, author of the blog, 'eat, live, write'. The recipes are easy to follow and the cookbook is filled with luscious photographs. You don't need to be a kid to try this book, but if you have kids it would be fun to cook with them. Bon Appetit!

This book was pretty good. It had recipes for every meal, and I especially liked the Special Occasions section.

It is always a treat when reviewing a cookbook to receive a real, paper copy in the post; I’m convinced the whole cookbook experience is improved by flicking through the pages, reading an ingredient list here, looking at photos there and then selecting something you know you need to try out. I spent many a happy moment with my morning coffee, this cookbook and my notebook close to hand.

My first thoughts were how straightforward the methods were, with clear and concise instructions, which is per

This book is nothing short of awesome. My 12yo (boy) picked it up and read it cover to cover, bookmarking what he wanted to cook. In the last 24 hours he has turned out the no-knead bread (delicious) and the Berry Galette (super duper yummy). The easy-to-follow recipes are challenging enough, but not overly so. The results are outstanding and really help kids build kitchen confidence! In my opinion, this is the best 'kids' cookbook I have ever come across. Recommend for adults too! Yum!

My 7yo and I are loving this book. In the past two days we’ve made the macarons, croissants and pains au chocolat and as someone who bakes quite often I’m impressed by the quality and ease of these recipes. Highly recommend!

*** edited to add we also made the celery root salad and I mean, who doesn’t want their kid to ask for celery root for lunch?

Not sure exactly how 'kid-friendly' this is (maybe older kids), but I love a lot of the recipes myself.

I got this excited to cook with my toddlers, but this wasn't their level at all. I might pick this up again when my kids are maybe 8 and above.
