You may know Little Dish as the company that makes fresh, healthy food for kids using only natural ingredients, an idea which has no doubt been of endless help to busy mums and dads everywhere. Well, they have now released their first collection of recipes, the ‘Little Dish Favourites Cookbook’.
Little Dish Favourites reads like a children’s book except, instead of stories, it’s a series of recipes tracking the journey of a child’s life from weaning onwards. That means recipes beginning with carrot purée to aubergine parmigiana and Eton mess. But unlike most cookbooks, there are no images of what the dishes look like, just endearing illustrations of little titbits. Actually, hidden amongst the drawings and recipes, there are a few witty poems too.
The book has been written by Hillary Graves, the co-founder of Little Dish, and it’s been designed with the busy parent in mind. As a mother herself, Graves has gone through the journey with her children and shared some very interesting and helpful hints on what the new parent should expect in this book. There is also the added bonus that after consulting with a paediatric dietician, Little Dish recipes have been tried and tested with Graves’ own children.
This looks like the perfect first family cookbook.
