The two moms who founded Piccolo Chef cooking school for kids in Los Angeles have years of experience under their belt formulating recipes and strategies for getting kids involved in the kitchen. Tina Fanelli Moraccini and Lilian Palmieri just published their first book this summer, and even got Top Chef alum Fabio Viviani to share his ideas about family cooking in the foreword. "It's really the perfect snack," says Moraccini about the suggested combos for their Crostini A-Go-Go recipe. Sounds like an ideal afternoon or rainy day activity.
