"Pretend Soup" By Mollie Katzen & Ann Henderson: A Great First Cookbook for Curious Junior Chefs

Pretend Soup by Mollie Katzen and Ann Henderson is one of my absolute favorite books. The book has become something of a classic for children ages 3 and up.

You might remember the famed Moosewood Cookbook author Mollie Katzen from pre-Food Network days of cooking shows, which is seeing a resurgence this summer. A culinary veteran, Chef Katzen has teamed up with educator Ann Henderson and the two of them have collaborated to create comprehensive, simple and surprisingly delicious recipes suitable for even the youngest chefs.

Each of the 17 vegetarian recipes appears twice, once in words and once in full-color pictures. The drawings in Pretend Soup allow small children to grasp the sequencing behind cooking. Recipes range from Zucchini Moons to Carrot Pennies to Pretend Soup (a yogurt parfait). The selections are nutritious, straightforward and toddler-proof.

This is a great first cookbook for the curious chef. Checkout the companion book, Salad People.
