KIDS IN THE KITCHEN

For Donna Hay, in­tro­duc­ing lit­tle peo­ple to the won­ders of cook­ing is a very spe­cial thing. Ba­sics to Bril­liance Kids (Harpercollins, $45) — which ac­com­pa­nies her Foxtel TV show — is full of step-by-step recipes young chefs will adore, and they’ve all had a healthy makeover too. Cov­er­ing all the kitchen ba­sics, with lots of room for ex­per­i­ment­ing, you’ll mas­ter tasty meals and bet­ter-for-you snacks, plus treats for par­ties, pic­nics and bake sales.

SENSE AND SEN­SI­BIL­ITY

US cook, restau­ra­teur and au­thor Alice Waters has had an enor­mous in­flu­ence the world over. Chez Panisse in Berke­ley, Cal­i­for­nia — the restau­rant she opened in 1971 — is a culi­nary des­ti­na­tion, and her Ed­i­ble School­yard Project, founded in 1996, was un­doubt­edly an in­spi­ra­tion for our very own Stephanie Alexan­der Kitchen Gar­den Foun­da­tion. In Com­ing to My Senses (Hardie Grant Books, $39.99), Alice tells how she found her voice and be­came such an in­flu­en­tial fig­ure.
