This is a gorgeous vegetarian cookbook for adults to share with kids. The photos are as lovely for the adults to look at as they will be inspiring for kids to make. The Forest Feast for Kids would be a perfect way for your children to share in the cooking for family guests. Who doesn't like to show off their talented kids? I'm not hinting or anything, but if any of the kids I know would like to invite me to a Grilled Cheese Party (page 80), or would like to have me over for a Fried Banana Split (page 66), I'd be totally game!
