Who are the Tiny Tarts?

The Tiny Tarts are the Country Tart's two young daughters who help out so much in the kitchen, in the creation of this blog and in the production of the SERVING up a SMILE weekly column, that it only seems fitting that they get their own space to share what it is they do.

The Tiny Tarts Make Pasta

There's nothing like getting the kids into the kitchen.  It makes dinner prep take 10 times as long but the knowledge picked up alongside an apron-clad elder is expansive and ranges from fundamental food prep techniques to a deeper understanding of our relationship with food and even the earth. 

Sure, the noodles would have been far more neat if I'd made them myself but they'd not have tasted nearly so good!

The knowledge shared is enough to encourage your children to lend a hand at mealtime; it's a plus that children who take pride in their work will find enjoyment in a wide variety of foods!

Who Knew These Kids Liked Sushi?

Take it from me, the best way to assure that your kids will want to try something is only buy enough for yourself and, whatever you do, do not offer to share. It works in the same way that whispering makes their ears suddenly tune into your voice.

Without fail, they'll come in and eat up my food each and every time!
