Popular chef Emeril Lagasse kicks it up a notch for the little ones in his excellent new cookbook for kids, Emeril's There's a Chef in My Soup. Emeril provides seventy-five recipes that kids (with a little parental supervision) should have no trouble recreating at home. You and your children will have lots of fun with such recipes as Make Lots of Friends Oven Baked French Fries, Gingerbread Friends, My Oh My Spaghetti Pie, Notches Unknown PBJ, Cheesy Star Snacks, Lean Mean Turkey Loaf and Pokey Brownies.
Illustrator Charles Yuen and the stylists of the book deserve especial credit. The pages are large and colorful, with sidebars for the ingredients list. For each recipe, a photo of Emeril's head has been placed on an artfully drawn cartoon body, so kids can see Emeril's expressions as he explains the recipes. Emeril has even concocted a special spice mixture for the kids called Baby Bam, which definitely kicks things up another notch. Emeril has put safety first, and uses little icons to indicate dangers such as heat, electricity etc. He always points out any dangerous aspects in any recipe, such as removing a hot dish from the oven. This is a must-have for any parent wishing to share some quality time in the kitchen with his child.
