WHY HOST CHEF GINO?
"Pages are slick and richly colored, with eye-catching illustrations and photos of food prep and finished dishes prepared by the chef and a diverse group of young kitchen helpers. Processed ingredients are rarely used and fresh vegetables appear often....Budding cooks are encouraged to experiment with flavor combinations and make the recipes their own...The bright colors, catchy dish names and Campagna's friendly attitude offer encouragement and guidance for novice cooks." --School Library Journal
