Kid Chef Junior: My First Kids Cookbook by [Shah, Anjali]

Kid Chef Junior: My First Kids Cookbook



Kid Chef Junior: My First Kids Cookbook gives budding chefs confidence in the kitchen with fun, yummy recipes that they'll enjoy eating and be proud to serve to family and friends.
Children are naturally curious about what goes on in the kitchen, and are eager to step up to the counter themselves. Kid Chef Junior: My First Kids Cookbook will help kids ages 4-8 develop their culinary know-how as they make healthy, wholesome, kid-approved meals—first with an adult, and eventually, all on their own!
In this kids cookbook, mom of two and author of The Super Easy Baby Food Cookbook, Anjali Shah, teaches children how to chop, whisk, bake, and cook on the stove. Designed to give kids confidence cooking and build essential skills, these recipes develop progressively from easy to medium to hard.
Inside the pages of Kid Chef Junior: My First Kids Cookbook you’ll find:
  • Cooking 101 includes age-appropriate guidance for learning to cook, and tips for staying safe in the kitchen
  • 25 creative and fun recipes for breakfast treats like Blueberry Blast Banana Bread, healthy snacks like Smashed Silly Face Guacamole, family dinners like Lasagna Rollups, and yummy desserts like Peanut Butter Surprise Brownies
  • Pictures of each recipe that help kids choose what to cook and lets them see just how great their creations will turn out
Kid Chef Junior: My First Kids Cookbook is the ideal first cookbook for little chefs who want to eat their food and cook it, too!


My thoughts:

I can't wait to try some of these recipes with my grandson.  He will love the step by step and making his own food.  I, on the other hand, love the words of wisdom that Anjali Shah gives in the note to grownups and a note to kids.  All good points that everyone should read.   

The recipes are rated from 1 to 3 oven mitts (1-easy, 2 medium, 3 hard) to help you know if your child is ready to prepare this type of recipe.   Of course you know your child and what he or she is capable of.  Supervision is key.  

The pictures are fantastic!  Nice and clear, they give you a idea of what you will be doing and the finished product.  Perfect. 

A great quality kids cookbook!
