Meet Author, Michelle Stern, and Take A Taste of The Whole Family Cookbook

If we are going to change children’s relationship to food, save their health and the health of our planet — then we need to find our kitchens again.  To teach our children the symbiotic relationship between healthy food, a healthy earth, and healthy kids, we need to shop, cook and grow together. The Whole Family Cookbook is a wonderful and delicious tool to help us all eat better, feed our kids well and teach them about good food. ~ Chef Ann Cooper, The Renegade Lunch Lady

The Whole Family Cookbook has been described as “a must-have” cookbook for busy families.

I appreciate the clarity and joy in these pages…Michelle conveys her contagious love of food and family togetherness. Especially important: the recipes are spot-on. ~ Mollie Katzen, author of The Moosewood Cookbook

What Makes This Book Unique…

The Whole Family Cookbook offers color coded instructions that guide kids of all ages through age-appropriate steps in every recipe.

It is a beautiful book that will appeal to kids, but it is full of real food, real cooking and will provide them with skills to cook for themselves in the real world. ~ Raising Cooks
