Complete Children’s Cookbook
Complete Children’s Cookbook includes more than 150-delicious dishes children will want to make and eat!
This cookbook is more than just recipes for children to prepare – it is a learning tool which will teach them basic cooking and baking skills and how to work in the kitchen safely. The recommended age range for this book is children from 7 to 10 years of age (with adult supervision).
The first section, Before you Begin, introduces:
- Healthy eating (including kitchen hygiene and safety)
- Tools and equipment (an image for each and every item used in the book)
- Ways to cook (includes preparing ingredients)
- Ways to bake
- Cooking rules (includes how to follow the recipes in the book)
Next we have the recipes which have been organized into 9 different chapters:
- Soups and Salads
- Light Bites
- Main Meals
- Cakes and Muffins
- Cookies and Bars
- Party Time
Some of the recipes included are:
- French Toast
- Rainbow Salad
- Vegetable Lasagna
- Tomato Soup
- Apple Crumble
- Mini Muffins
- Blueberry and Sour Cream Cake
- Pizza Squares
Complete Children’s Cookbook focuses on safety and has implemented a visual warning symbol to remind the young cook each time a step in the recipe could result in injury (i.e. hot pot/sharp items/using electrical equipment). Whenever there is a “Safety in the Kitchen” step the warning symbol (a red triangle with a white exclamation mark in the center) will be included, to remind them to be careful.
You can see the warning symbol used in all four images below:
Every recipe includes step-by-step photo examples of the actions the young cook will need to follow in order to create their dish.
The instructions are in an easy-to-follow format and the supportive images demonstrate visually what needs to be done.
Colorful and fun to browse through…with so many different recipes to choose from – your young cook is sure to find one they want to make.
Although Complete Children’s Cookbook is geared toward children it is also a fantastic resource for anyone who wishes to begin cooking, or baking. The step-by-step photos take the guesswork out of the written instructions and make this an easy-to-follow cookbook for all ages. Bright and colorful, the photographs included may also inspire children to try foods outside their ‘comfort zones’; to take a more active role in the kitchen at an earlier age and as a result, to become more competent adult cooks.
