This is a fun book to share with the little cooks in your family. It is loaded with recipes, but the unique thing is that they’re all tied to various fairy tales. Something I especially enjoyed was that there are bits of history and tips along the sides of the pages. (p. 117, #5 is a fave)
Note: Many of the recipes are quite basic, nothing new to me. However, I did copy down a recipe for “Seaweed Stuffed Shells” (which is really spinach & ricotta stuffed pasta shells), as this looks like something my family of picky eaters might actually eat!

A collection of fairy tales. Each tale is matched with a recipe or two. The tales are simply told, but are not for the youngest kids. ( )

This is a must have for your children. It is a fun, creative and child-friendly book. The recipes that are included are easy for children to produce. The book also has interesting facts about the recipe and food in general. It also includes related folk and fairy tales. ( )

Readers will find both folktales and recipes in this colorful collection. After enjoying the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, young cooks, along with their grown-up helpers, can turn the page to find recipes for all of the goodies in Red's picnic basket. The story of Jack and the Beanstalk introduces a recipe for Jack's Magic Party Beans. The Fox and the Grapes, an Aesop fable, is followed by a recipe for fruit salad. Both recipes and folktales include detailed margin notes providing more information about tale versions and food trivia. Although the recipes themselves do not include photographs, each folktale is illustrated in full color.

A wonderful, beautiful book. Fun, child-friendly recipes and interesting food facts accompany related folk and fairy tales. "Stone Soup" for example (not what you might think). The illustrations and design are gorgeous and complement the book perfectly.

Book description
Fairy Tale Feasts is more than a collection of stories and recipes. In it, Caldecott-winning author Jane Yolen and her daughter, Heidi Stemple, imagine their readers as co-conspirators. They share fun facts and anecdotes about the creation of the stories and the history of foods. This book is designed to encourage future cooks and storytellers to make up their own versions of the classics.
