What’s Cooking at 10 Garden Street is a cookbook for children, but I think “kids” of all ages will enjoy it too! This delightfully illustrated children’s cookbook offers a global menu of dishes to share with friends, family, and neighbors.
I am grateful for all of my readers. When you interact with me on social media, it makes me feel like you are grateful for me too!
What’s Cooking at 10 Garden Street
by Felicita Sala
Something delicious is cooking in the old apartment building on Garden Street!
Pilar is mixing gazpacho, Monsieur Ping is stir-frying broccoli, Señora Flores is preparing a pot of beans, and Josef and Rafik are rolling meatballs. Other neighbors are making mini-quiches, baba ganoush, dhal, and peanut butter cookies. Then, when they’re all finished cooking everyone gathers in the garden to enjoy a delicious meal and each other’s company.
Each inviting spread in this storybook offers a recipe from a different culinary tradition.
Dishes that kids love, like guacamole, spaghetti, and banana bread are interspersed with others that include less familiar ingredients, such as mirin, tahini, and turmeric.
In addition, the recipes explain how each dish is made and come with fun and detailed illustrations. Combining simple, fresh flavors with recipes from around the world, this book will nourish and inspire budding cooks while whetting the appetites of their more experienced helpers.

My review of What’s Cooking on Garden Street
What’s Cooking at 10 Garden Street is more than a cookbook for children. It is a book about cultures and family. I’m sure that you’ve got a favorite recipe that has been passed down through your family. It’s probably one you’ve made so many times you don’t even need a recipe. The recipes in this book are very much like that. They represent the ones making the dish. Most of all, this cookbook is about friendships. We don’t all come from the same backgrounds, nor do we make the same dishes. But we can certainly all come together to share in a meal. Don’t lose touch with your neighbors. We live in a closed off world. Teach your kids that differences mean very little, and connections with those around us are important. Maybe this little book will inspire you to have a neighborhood dinner too.
