Tiana’s Cookbook

Tiana's CookbookOf course we love The Princess and the Frog! Well the animation style is beautiful anyway- less said about the characterisations the better…  We enjoyed this tarot sequence, and all the references to Louisiana cooking. Alas the special tarot pack doesn’t seem to be included in the merchandising, but we did discover this wonderful book. Some of the recipes are impressively grown up- including mint juleps, chicken and biscuits, and red beans and rice. Mmmm! The Princess and the Frog: Tiana’s Cookbook: Recipes for Kids
