A memoir about the joys of food and parenting and the wild mélange of the two

 

Matthew Amster-Burton was a restaurant critic and food writer long before he and his wife, Laurie, had Iris. Now hes a full-time, stay-at-home Dad and his experience with food has changed . . . a little. He's come to realize that kids dont need puree in a jar or special menus at restaurants, and that raising an adventurous eater is about exposure, invention, and patience. He writes of the highs and lows of teaching your child about food--the high of rediscovering how something tastes for the first time through a childs unedited reaction, and the low of thinking you have a precocious vegetable fiend on your hands only to discover that a childs preferences change from day to day (and may take years to include vegetables again). Sharing in his culinary capers is little Iris, a budding gourmand and a zippy critic herself who makes huge sandwiches, gobbles up hot chilis, and even helps around the kitchen sometimes. Hungry Monkey takes food enthusiasts on a new adventure in eating and offers dozens of delicious recipes that "little fingers" can help to make.

Super funny book about the adventures of raising a kid under a foodie's watch. The writing style and pace of the book make it tough to put down. Plenty of bacon and pirate references as any good book should have.

The recipies seem to be pretty dang good. I have made the Phad Thai recipe so far and am going to try out the braised short ribs soon even though my kid can't eat real food yet.
