Here’s a fun and easy way for young folks to learn how to cook. What makes this cookbook unique? The directions.
Kids Cooking: Scrumptious Recipes for Cooks Ages 9 to 13 from the Williams-Sonoma Kitchen Library explains the cooking process clearly. Much of the information is illustrated by color photos. For instance, pictures demonstrate the difference between sliced, chopped, and minced. The uses of kitchen equipment are explained at the beginning of the book. And every recipe is written out step by step for the benefit of the novice cook.
But the recipes will last well past age 13. Here are a few favorites that may stick around:
- Apple Cinnamon Muffins.
- Mamma Mia Minestrone.
- Taco Salad.
- Old-Fashioned Mashed Potatoes.
- Spaghetti & Meatballs.
- Giant Oatmeal Cookies.
Kids Cooking includes breakfasts, soups, salads, vegetables, lunches, dinners, and desserts that are sure to please. Many of these recipes use real, unprocessed foods, some of which you may be growing in your own garden.
An excellent choice for young chefs. Highly recommended!
