At first glance it may seem surprising that I offer recipes for leek and fennel cream soup and pear cake with curry in a cookery book intended for children. I chose such dishes, however, to show that these healthy, exciting and, at the same time, easy-to-prepare dishes with their slighly unconvenional, interesing and new flavours are appreciated by children. Children will grow up with tastes and open-mindedness we offer to them. My daughters, Karen and Nori, and I spend a lot of time in the kichen, and cooking together always brings much joy and laughter. The recipes recommended here have been tested, liked and approved by them. I trust that the “courageous” children will feel the same.
