Kids in the Kitchen. We used to spend hours paging through a children's international cookbook that was a gift from our grandparents. We still remember the illustrations of Dutch children in their wooden clogs and an intriguing recipe for Mexican Cocoa. While we didn't turn out to be the next Julia Child, leafing through cookbooks and watching and helping our mother cook sparked a lifelong interest in the culinary arts. Some of our favorite cookbooks for kids after the jump.
