approachable recipes for the pre-teen and teen set
Reviewed in the United States on January 28, 2019
This book gets a thumbs up from my two. It's a serious cookbook for kids, not dumbing down important aspects of cooking. It turns everyday food into approachable recipes for the pre-teen and teen set. It includes recipes for all three daily meals, and also some good sections on baking, food safety, organizing, how to use a knife, and other essential kitchen skills. I especially like the tips throughout of what to add or substitute. I do wish recipes had at least some nutritional info. But if they can start to cook food from scratch, we're ahead of the game compared to prepared and preserved options. The adventurous can try a souffle at the end of the book, which must be a nod to the author's popular blog, Souffle Bombay. It took a few months, but my kiddos started asking if they could make some of the recipes, and I couldn't get out of the kitchen fast enough. Yes, please! Have fun in there!
