Review for What’s Cooking at 10 Garden Street?

What's Cooking at 10 Garden Street?, House, Smoke, Cooking, People, Felicita Sala, Children's Books, Non-Fiction, Cooking, Party, Picture Books, CosyRecipes, a cosy and welcoming building with tons of fun people, and yummy food.


I read this book in Dutch but wanted to post my review in English. Note, I will use the Dutch names for the people/street.

Welcome to Granaatappelstraat, and then especially welcome to this big apartment-block.You will meet several people who live there and their families. And see the yummy foods they are making. Because everyone in this house is making something superdelicious (well, OK, I would have to adjust 1 or 2 of them if they have nuts or soy) for a big party in the garden.

We see Mr. Ibrahim thinking about his childhood and making Baba Ganoush (which looks superduper yummy), while in another apartment Mr. Ping and his nephew Benjamin are making Boompjes (trees because of how broccoli looks), and we switch over again to Ms. Ishida making delicious Oyako Don. And so there are many others in this book that will show you what they are making and believe me I loved it.

The recipes are done in the same gorgeous way as the the rest of the books, with illustrations and a small part with text to explain what to do with the ingredients. I really love this way of doing recipes, it is instantly clear what you need and it looks pretty.
The recipes are all quite simple, so perfect for kids to try out along with an adult to help with cutting and all that.

The illustrations are perfection, I really love the style. It really helps with the warm and cosy vibe the book has.

All in all, I would recommend this cute, cosy and fluffy recipe picture book to all.

Star rating, 4.5 stars
