I am a big believer in teaching kids to cook starting at a very young age. All 3 of my girls, including my 2 year old, get to help in the kitchen a lot. I feel this helps them not only learn to cook but teachers them about making good food choices. 20 Recipes Kids Should Know by teen sisters Esme and Calista Washburn is the perfect recipe book for children! This fun and engaging cookbook is written and photographed by a pair of young sisters for budding chefs.
Whether they're helping stir cake batter or producing their own YouTube cooking channel, kids of all ages are getting increasingly busy in the kitchen. This cookbook features twenty classic recipes that are fun, healthy, adaptable, and easy to prepare. From banana bread and the perfect grilled cheese to breaded chicken and apple pie, each recipe is written in a clear, accessible style that young cooks of every level will be able to follow. The author is a young chef whose love of cooking developed from her own family's food traditions like baking popovers with her grandmother and Sunday-night pizza making. By teaching kids basic recipes that can be adapted in endless ways, this book is the perfect launching pad to finding their way around the kitchen--or launching their own cooking careers.
ESME and CALISTA WASHBURN are sisters living in New York City. Esme, who is in middle school, is an amateur chef and cooking enthusiast. She has learned everything she knows from her grandmother. Calista, a recent high school graduate and budding photographer, loves helping out in the kitchen and eating the delicious food that Esme cooks.
Here are some pictures of my two daughters using the cookbook. The recipes include easy to read and follow instructions as well as gorgeous photos of what the food is supposed to look like.
My girls here are 10 and 7 for reference.
Their pancakes turned out light and fluffy and we ate them all up. The recipe cooked plenty for our family of 5.
You can purchase 20 Recipes Kids Should Know conveniently on Amazon or other places books are sold. If you are ready to have your kids start following recipes this is the book to get started with! My girls constantly are flipping through this book and picking out what they want to cook next!
