When she picks a recipe, she really picks a recipe.
This is from The International Cookbook for Kids by Matthew Locricchio, which she borrowed from the library. I believe this Beef Stew with Tomatoes and Olives is French.
It was a project that took several hours, lots of chopping and stirring, even some very, very attentive brushing of dirt off mushrooms with a paper towel.
The cookbook did a nice job of laying out the steps, and I appreciate that they clearly didn’t dumb down the recipes just because they’re for kids.
