Acknowledging the troubles of feeding kids, Joshua David Stein, a food stuff author and mother or father, introduces “Cooking for Your Little ones,” his collection of recipes meant to satisfy kids, by expressing: “For several moms and dads, myself incorporated, the evening meal table can be a battlefield.” So to fill the arsenal he turned to cooks who are also mothers and fathers. His resources consist of Sean Brock, Pierre Thiam, Danny Bowien, Elena Arzak, Ana Ros, Jocelyn Guest and Erika Nakamura, Daniel Rose and Marie-Aude Rose, and Suzanne Goin and David Lentz. The recipes run the gamut from straightforward fruit kebabs by Lee Anne Wong of Koko Head Cafe in Honolulu and a vegetable frittata by Will Goldfarb of Place 4 Dessert on Bali, to an grownup-pleasing rooster, leek and tarragon pie from Margot and Fergus Henderson of St. John in London. Every entry has a powerful clarification.
