Cooking for Kids
Tesco Cookery Collection
I lived in the UK for a few years back in 1990s and was a Tesco regular. It took a while for me to adapt to some of the more interesting food choices or names. (I initially thought that Spotted Dick was some type of STD.)
There is nothing really wrong with this book, but I am cracking up at some of the delightful treats. Some actually sound like they would taste pretty good. (Wholemeal Vegetable Samosas, I’m looking at you.) I want to meet the person who has time to make delightful dishes to entertain the kids. Of course my kids fell on food like vultures, so I didn’t have to resort to food tricks. I have to say, I am not a big fan of food that looks like something else. Food should look like food.
As far as library collections go, cookbooks can go in and out of style. Old doesn’t necessarily make something a weeder, but I would put this little gem in a category like Better Homes and Gardens cookbooks. Popular for awhile, but not a keeper for all time.
