Melina has written the cooking-with-kids book that we have needed for a long time. She brings everything front and center: the heat, the anchovies, the knife skills. I would recommend this spectacular book to both kids and grownups alike.—Phyllis Grant, author of the Dash and Bella blog

"The clear and concise recipes are great for novice cooks of any age and keep with Melina's dedication to eating in season, and with flavor." — Design Sponge

[Kid Chef] is packed with all kinds of healthy recipes and culinary skills for the kid who's trying to take over mealtime. While geared towards the younger ones, these recipes are for anyone wanting easy to prepare, nutritious recipes. Miso Grilled Shrimp Skewers, Pulled Pork Sliders and Easy Tzatziki were a few that Chloe asked to make as she flipped through the pages. That's a pretty good sign of this books success!—Weelicious

This fabulous cookbook treats kids like real home cooks—just ones who are starting at the beginning. Packed with bright, beautiful photography and cooking facts, like quick and easy instructions on how to read a recipe and prep ingredients, this is a book that can truly help your aspiring cook thrive in the kitchen. The recipes are fabulous, from a simple but totally impressive Potato-Gruyère Tart to easy tutorials on how to make basics like garlic bread. —Cook Mom Picks

Because Melina's food is centered around fresh, good eating, the dishes will satisfy grownup palates just as much as adventuresome kids. —Milkbottle
