(From the Book Blurb)
My little one has just first made his first omellette from scratch! and although it might be lacking in presentation, it actually tastes pretty good. As he is becoming increasingly more and more interested in food preparation, I decided it was time to let him browse a cookbook for kids and have a chat about what he can see in the pictures.
Pierre Lamielle’s book is a fun introduction to cooking techniques, flavours and basic recipes. I loved the way the book started with safety and dealt with it in a very clear and visual manner. It also has little warning symbols (hot, sharp, germs) throughout the book, so little chefs wouldn’t forget to pay attention to safety issues once they get super-excited about making their own ketchup, volcano eggs and bananamole. The suggested age range is 8 to 13 years old, although it will depend, of course, on the support you are providing your child with.
The difficulty level increases as the book progresses, but the recipes continue to be fun! The chicken herby stew looked simply gorgeous.
I wish I’d had a book like this when I was a child. I would have had such great time with it and possibly would have avoided quite a few cooking disasters my family still keep quietly chuckling about whenever the topic comes up at family reunions.
