Kid Chef Eliana wins a 2013 Parents’ Choice Award for Cool Kids Cook: Louisiana!
Jambalaya at Octavia Books
“Classic Cajun dishes come together with ease, thanks to Kid Chef Eliana’s simplified recipes. She starts with the basics of the cuisine: Cajun spice, trinity, and roux. Most of the recipes that follow use at least one of these components in combination with shrimp, andouille sausage, and other ingredients. This cookbook will teach children that food can still be flavorful and indulgent, without needing to be as unhealthy as what is served at most restaurants.” – Parents’ Choice Foundation
