A lovely book designed to have children learn how to cook healthful meals on their own.
DK Publishing is known for their excellent books. This cookbook is no different. There are fantastic photographs throughout the book. Ingredients, kitchen tools and step-by-step methods are pictured to help children understand how to create each meal. This book is very easy-to-understand and is set up for beginner cooks.
Another thing that I enjoyed about this book was the way that there were a variety of protein sources, whether it be vegetarian, lamb, chicken or red meat. There are health tips within the book to help educate children on the importance of eating a variety of healthful foods. Food safety tips are explained too.
To help test this book out, I had my five-year old son look the book over. He found the pictures easy to understand. Being this book is designed for nine to twelve-year olds, I did need to help him read. But he did like the cookbook, and could follow the recipes.
There are a variety of recipes in here. There are recipes for: omelets, granola, tomato soup, cheese and potato pockets, chocolate cake, apple pie, vegetable tart, falafel, Naan bread, fruit crisp, fruit pops, roasted chicken, fishcakes, lamb kebabs, roasted vegetable lasagna, a stir-fry recipe, a curry recipe and much more!
If you have a child in the house that is interested in cooking, pick this book up!
