Children’s Quick and Easy Cookbook: More Than 60 Simple Recipes

DK. Apr. 2023. 96p. Tr $19.99. ISBN 9780744073980.
Gr 3 Up–Wilkes, along with many talented photographers, has created the kid-focused cookbook you’ve been looking to purchase! Drawing from early reader design, most pages have a white background with colorful boxes hosting recipe ingredients and equipment needed. Recipe pages also include cooking time, servings, and suggestions for vegetarian-friendly changes. Parents and caregivers are strongly encouraged to supervise children at all times when in the kitchen. Red warning signs are placed by recipe instructions that may require an adult to help. While the title is not entirely health food conscious and a few recipes do include frying, overall, the focus is on fresh fruits, veggies, and unprocessed meats. To encourage a well-rounded palate, recipes from around the world are included, such as Turkish Kebabs, Falafel, Tacos and Guacamole, Chicken Chow-mein, Chicken Curry and Rice, and Tabbouleh. The recipes are simple snacks, meals, desserts, and sweet treats, and they range from simple to more complex, from oven-baked potato wedges to a chocolate soufflé. To help young chefs prepare these dishes, there is a chef’s know-how section, complete with pictures showing diverse children’s hands at work and written instructions.
VERDICT A must purchase!
