Around the World in 80 Purees: Easy Recipes for Global Baby Food
by Leena Saini

Sally's Place contributor Leena Saini has written her first cookbook. Her columns, titled Raising an Adventurous Eater, offers flavors and spices to tempt tiny taste buds. This is also the premise of her new book. More than 100 quick and easy recipes, accompanied by richly colorful photographs by Christine Han, take readers on a culinary tour of the globe: Savory and Sweet Selections for Babies 6 Months and Up, Flavorful Spoonfuls and Mouthwatering Meals, and Tidbits, Tips, and Tricks.

Tiny taste buds can be just as discerning as those of grown-ups, so why feed your baby a lackluster pile of bland paste? In Around the World in 80 Purees: Easy Recipes for Global Baby Food (Quirk Books; $19.99), food blogger and mother of two Leena Saini gives little tummies a taste of the extraordinary, offering an array of enticing recipes inspired by dishes from around the globe. These baby food blends allow petite palates to experience big flavors from more than 40 countries, from China to Colombia, Turkey to Taiwan.

The transition to solid foods is a milestone across all cultures. And by sharing a broad range of flavors and ingredients with their little ones, parents can encourage a lifetime of adventurous eating. In Around the World in 80 Purees, Saini shares her research of global first foods and offers developmentally appropriate serving suggestions and tips for safely introducing babies to herbs, spices, and other ingredients.  Click here to for more information.
