New School Cuisine Cookbook: Nutritious and Seasonal Recipes for School Cooks by School Cooks

School food is key to get kids to eat healthier. Educators, administrators, and parents across the country are working to improve children's nutrition and eating habits - building school gardens, designing cooking classes, organizing farm field trips. But the fastest, most realistic way to get kids to eat better: serve school food that tastes good.

New School Cuisine is the first-ever effort by public school cooks who wrote a hands-on cookbook for their peers. It is the only cookbook that:

  • is for school cooks, by school cooks
  • includes only kid-tested recipes
  • features local, seasonal ingredients and farm to school resources

The book includes more than 75 recipes for school kitchens to prepare healthy, locally-sourced meals for their students. It's a practical resource for child nutrition programs: each recipe is in USDA format, yields school-sized quantities, includes a nutritional analysis and contains information on the specific food components that credit towards meeting the USDA meal pattern.
