The Purple Book from Ella’s Kitchen has been described on review as: “Fab”, “Beautiful”, and “Easy To Follow”.

Here are some recent reviews:

This is a great book, which takes you through from day 1 of weaning to the later stages when you can prepare full meals. Some lovely recipes and all information is clearly laid out. I already have one child, so this was my second experience of weaning, however I still found the book really useful.

“I really thought that this book would be too cool for me, but as other reviewers have said it’s really got some great recipes in it. We had trouble weaning our little girl at first, but this book made it so easy and made me feel less overwhelmed as the whole process is set out into managable stages. the recipes are really simple and mean that i’m able to provide my baby with a fresh meal (made during nap time!) if my husband and I are eating something she can’t have. i’d highly recommend this book for its ease of use, helpful tips, good layout and yummy recipes.

Well this is our bible. The recipes in here are easy and tasty and there is enough guidance to make you keep coming back to the book. The pull out wallchart is useful and its organised into food for age ranges as well, although the finger foods section is separate and it can be difficult to see the age in the star.  What we ella's kitchen recipeslove is that this is a book that is informative and we can always go back to and use again. It gives details of the number of servings you are making as well.

The Purple Book from Ella’s Kitchen is currently REDUCED to £14.99 with FREE DELIVERY.

The Red Book from Ella’s Kitchen has been described on review as: “Fantastic”, “Brilliant”, and “The Best Book Out There”.

Here are some recent reviews:

“It has really simply recipes, lovely pictures, and the method is well described. Although I say simple recipes, they are without exception tasty and delicious. For example it has a marvellous meatballs recipe which would be difficult to get wrong. Simple steps. Not too many ingredients. And if the instructions are followed. Tasty food. As you can see I really like the book. Don’t be put off with pictures of 5 year olds. I know it looks like a child’s recipe book. Because it is.  However, this is good, healthy food, recipe book for ALL generations.”

Purchased this to help give me inspiration with weaning. It hasn’t failed. It’s a really good cook book for children and adults with a variety of recipes to suit young and older children that aren’t too difficult to make.

“Beautiful book with lovely ideas. Bright colours and opportunities for kids to colour in. Comes with ideas to include children in cooking or other learning experiences such as counting/ weighing. Comes with lovely stickers too.

Here are some recent reviews:

“There are plenty of good recipes in this book. I particularly like the way it encourages you to involve your children within the cooking process which, in turn, encourages them to eat what you have both prepared. My toddler and I have enjoyed making some of these recipes very much.”

“Nicely presented book. It has loads of pictures, not just of the food but also of little ones enjoying the cooking and eating. As a Grandma who loves cooking, I am looking forward to trying recipes out with my granddaughter.”

ella's kicthen recipes“I love this book! I use it regularly to cook with my little granddaughter with much success. The recipes are easy, tasty and much lower in fat and sugar than conventional recipes. In fact I’m about to buy another copy for my niece and nephew as they already have (a well used) Red Ella’s Cookbook so this will be a welcome addition for them.”
