A book for all generations, it will seduce the little ones thanks to these magnificent colorful illustrations and its "Lost and Found" game. and the older ones will appreciate the new pastry recipes, created especially for this book.
Big plus, the book is bilingual (French and English) with small touches of Chinese. Another way to learn a language while having fun!
📷 Read the article of Anne Maynard: HERE "The Mystery of the Yellow Dragon" is the second volume of A Cooking Journey, successfully funded last year.
The book in detail:
A4 format, hardcover, 56 pages, paper 150gsm.
Thanks to your unwavering support, to word of mouth and to our globe-trotting pastry chefs,
this first volume has traveled to different countries and continents (France, USA, Russia, Greece, Spain, Switzerland, Africa...) and has won over a large number of children.
It is therefore time to propose a follow-up to this gourmet adventure!
What do you think ?
If you follow our adventures on Instagram
, you were able to discover the first names of the characters in this second volume:
📷 As with the first book,characters are the real friends of my children, Tao and Capucine.
This time, no trip around the world. But a great adventure in China, discovering fabulous regions that we had the chance to visit!
For this second volume, I created the 7 recipes by drawing inspiration from Chinese specialties and giving them a little western taste.
The recipes are adapted to be made by children alone or with 4 hands.
You won't find these recipes in any other book! They are unique and I imagined them for your pastry apprentices.
Who is behind this foodies project?
Me, Camille Mallet. Mom, pastry chef (recipes blog In love with a Lemon Tart) and full-time storyteller!
I admit that this first experience with A Cooking Journey gave me the virus of writing! Even though we haven't lived in Shanghai since (now heading to sunny California), I wanted to write this book to highlight the beauty of this country,China, who welcomed us during these 4 years.
As for the first volume, I put all my love into writing this story. My children having grown up, I added a dimension of puzzles and a Lost and Found game (they love it and me too ;)).
Who is hiding behind these beautiful illustrations?
📷 Nina Bruneau, talented cosmic artist! I had the chance to work with Nina on the first volume, A Cooking Journey (discover her interview here). And for this new gourmet adventure, I am sure that its colorful and imaginary universe will appeal to young and old alike. Moreover, during this campaign, we propose to schools or associations to meet them for 1/2 day (Nina in Bordeaux and for my part in San Francisco) and have a great time with the children by drawing, talking about the profession of author...
