Egg & Spoon: An Illustrated Cookbook

Written by Alexander Tylee, published October 2020 by Gecko Press.

A scrumptious collection for anyone who loves good healthy food — and an occasional indulgence. Here are after-school snacks, breakfast on a stick, cakes, slices and dinners. Egg and Spoon is for children learning to cook independently and families to enjoy cooking together. Much of the food is naturally gluten-free or vegan.

“Sorry everyone, let’s call it now and be done: big bold happy-go-lucky cookbook Egg and Spoon is absolutely the non-fiction book of the year.” Catherine Woulfe, The Spinoff

“Every recipe from Cauliflower Pizza Base to Watermelon and Feta Salad, has their pages filled with coloured illustrations that appear thrown on the page in abandon by illustrator Giselle Clarkson. It’s a wonderful effect. Gorgeous, quality paper is used in all Gecko Press’ books as in this one. A stunning lipstick red cover displays a boiled egg with a gold crown on top, sitting in a white egg cup. Very effective.” - Kids’ Book Review
