Here's what people have to say about You've Got Recipes:
"...YOU'VE GOT RECIPES is so au courant, so with it, so tuned into kiddie email messages, great tasting recipes, and so enchanting in visuals that it is definitely *****. Just think, Wolfgang Puck, Alice Waters, and Jacques Pepin love it also...." ~Joan Reardon
"...Jerry Anne DiVecchio's wit, cuisine expertise and kindness comes through strongly in this enchanting book that will introduce children to the idea that cooking is fun. The principles they learn here will expand their enjoyment of food and its preparation for the rest of their lives. The drawings are captivating, and the French lessons are a big bonus. Never again will menus mystify!..." ~Rosalie Pakenham
"...This is the perfect book for that child in your life, a wonderful birthday gift, for example, for any nine year old (on up) in your family or that of a friend. The illustrations are perfect, but the recipes by noted chef and food author, Jerry Di Veccchio, are really great. They all are practical for the child to achieve, and are delicious. Here are recipes and a "how to" approach that will engender the skill and love of cooking for a lifetime..." ~Tom Perkins
"...Hi. I am Jack and I am 10 and Jerry DiVecchio is my grandmother. I have made everything in this book lots of times and it's easy and we eat it all up. The pictures are great - it's better that being all words - and the pictures aren't for babies or anything. My favorite thing is the crepes. Crepes are really thin pancakes. I can flip them by myself. It took practice but now I am really good at it. You can make them even better if you fill them with stuff like Nutella or chocolate chips or marshmellows or sugar or butter - you can put in whatever you like. My friends are jealous that my grandmother is such a good cooker. You will like everything. Nothing is gross...." ~Jack G
