Alphanim and The Farm Get Cooking on New Series

Paris-based Alphanim is partnering with Irish house The Farm, to produce the new animated series, COOKING? CHILDS PLAY! Due for delivery in January 2005, COOKING? CHILDS PLAY! is based on Michel Olivers best-selling series of cookbooks for kids and is being produced with CCA and Canal J.

The series brings the worlds most loved recipes to the fingertips of aspiring young chefs. In addition to a new recipe every episode, there are tips for everyone and safety messages about cooking

Not only will the kids love cooking but they will also help their parents prepare wonderful meals and teach them the magical tips to make every recipe a success, said Clément Calvet, producer at Alphanim. We are very enthusiastic to bring this rather unique and tasteful program to the market.

Bobby O'Reilly, ceo of Dublin-based The Farm said, France has contributed so much to international cuisine and children in France have always appreciated good food. Kids across the world now have a chance to learn to cook French and international dishes. It has never been more important for kids to learn about freshly prepared food, the importance of good ingredients and a balanced diet, and we believe they can learn this in a fun and educational way. COOKING? CHILDS PLAY! is a recipe for success!
