read the book...I would recommend it for folk who want kids to learn how to cook.  well written instructions and stuff a teen or 'tween would probably eat.

I assumed his daughter feigned being awkward.  Perhaps not.

Ive always thought that myself.

 

but a while back I read something that suggested otherwise.

 

She moved right on to the Wine business.

 

smart !

As a small child JP's GD has shown up from time to time in JP's shows

 

she is a young adult on this show

 

however doesn't get to taste a drink they make : ' The Adonis '

 

Sherry , vermouth . bitters

 

she gets pineapple juice , ginger syrup , grenadine

 

so she's not of Legal Age.

 

she's far more comfortable in the kitchen than her mother it seems

I received the book today

 

I was a brief amazon prime member for one month

 

Free !  and of course cancelled one day before a change 

 

I got a few things to ' catch up ' etc

 

this book is not what I expected , but it makes a lot of sense to me now :

 

if you like cooking , and have children that are ' helping out ' in the kitchen ...

 

this would be an outstanding book for them to have , making it their own book

 

so Kudos to JP   for getting children and young adults Into the Kitchen

 

even if they can't enjoy Personal Beverages  i.e. MR outside your own home.

 

JP was not mailing it in

 

when you look at this book that way.

 

""  Why don't we write a book showing the relationship between a grandfather and a granddaughter and how it can be enhanced 

 

and made better by spending time together in the kitchen ? "

 

from the intro

 

would work well w a daughter or a son

what a fine idea , esp if the book belongs to the child.

59e4fb1848a19_JPSalmon.thumb.jpg.ddb04f49949f31542507c19eeb681c8c.jpg

 

again , simple but very interersting

 

59e4fb42b26c6_JPTS.thumb.jpg.c4e4d087360a2b135a800fdd9dae5767.jpg

 

tomato soup   not from Cambells.

 

59e4fb62e4bb8_JPHD.thumb.jpg.b3d124ed739369838f778c628695b558.jpg

 

and a wonderful thing for a child to discover.   Brats would be nice here

 

59e4fb99f327c_JPAsp.thumb.jpg.be911f22511e8a97a94f5a6c54e4fa06.jpg

 

simple.  delicous

 

59e4fbb3d74b7_JPCG1.thumb.jpg.0d0004339760b9ba64e8461f250ca3ec.jpg

 

a bit more complicated , but not really.

59e4fbe0c70c3_JPCG3.thumb.jpg.d25fa50e7f73cfc7957ab120b69b7ed1.jpg

 

I send Kudos to JP and those who might find this book

 

just the right thing

 

for their children
