Did the book Nourishing Traditions change your life like it did ours? Then you'll be thrilled to hear there's another book in the line… the Nourishing Traditions Cookbook for Children.
I couldn't be more thrilled to share this new book with you — not only because of the gorgeous illustrations and beautiful kid-friendly layout — but because it's written by long-time Traditional Cooking School member and friend, Suzanne Gross.
In today's podcast, Suzanne shared that she had the idea to write the book, so she approached Sally Fallon Morell. Sally said yes and that's how it all began… If that's not encouragement to follow your dreams to share something marvelous with the world, I don't know what is!
Congratulations, Suzanne — and job well done!
In today's podcast, you'll get to hear all about Suzanne and her family, about writing the book, what's in the book, and what she wants the book to do for your family — especially your children.

About Susan Gross and The Nourishing Traditions Cookbook for Children
Suzanne Gross lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Ziv, and their three children, Ariella, Natalie and Ethan. For as long as she can remember, she has loved books and music and has written numerous short stories, poems and songs. Cooking became one of her passions when she realized it was a necessary skill to have in order to keep her family healthy. She holds a bachelor's degree in Library and Information Science and at one time was planning to become a school librarian. She still thinks being a librarian or a teacher would be one of the best jobs in the world, second only to being a mom of course. The Nourishing Traditions Cookbook for Children is her first book.

About the Book
Cooking the Nourishing Traditions way means following the wisdom of our ancestors, whose food ways were mindful of the earth, the animals and their own bodies. It means avoiding industrial processed foods (and dietary advice that promotes these foods) and instead, selecting natural, nutrient-dense foods.
Inside this book, you will find an entire chapter devoted to butter! Eggs, raw milk, meats, broth, fermented foods, whole grains and vegetables all take their turn in the spotlight. Children learn why these foods are good for them and how the way food is grown, processed and prepared can either help or hurt us. Over one hundred recipes invite children into the kitchen to learn preparation of nourishing meals, snacks and treats.
Colorfully illustrated, The Nourishing Traditions Cookbook for Children describes the principles of good nutrition in a simple language that children can understand. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nannies, teachers and anyone involved in a young person's life can use this book to successfully equip children with the skills and wisdom they need to nourish themselves and–one day soon–their own families.
