The secret to The Bold Italic’s “A 4-Year-Old Reviews…” series is all the beautifully composed still photos of each young reviewer’s reactions. That’s no less the case with “A 4-Year-Old Reviews Chez Panisse,” where guest reviewer Mila Allwood’s reactions are completely priceless.

The photos where Allwood’s verbal reactions are quoted remind us of the judges on most cooking competition shows we’ve ever watched. Perhaps that’s where her future lies?

In any case, here’s a quick overview of some of our favorites. There’s a lot more to Allwood’s review than this, so you should definitely check out the entire piece for full photographic context.
