If you are a foodie baby then there are certain things that you need to know how to do. You need to know your "way around the kitchen," even if that only means that you play with kitchen utensils in the cabinets. You need to appreciate "small plates," cheese, and finger foods. Of course you need to do these things in an appropriately baby-like manner. After all, babies have their own way of doing things.

In this delightful board book the creators of Urban babies wear black take a look at urban babies who have an appreciation for one of the good things in this world – food. With tongue in cheek humor that adults will greatly appreciate, and using just a few words and wonderfully retro artwork, this talented duo give readers a splendid portrait of hip babies.
