5.0 out of 5 stars She loves it!
Reviewed in Canada on 19 April 2021
My youngest daughter at the age of 10 loves cooking and cooking shows. She saved up her own money and purchased herself two cookbooks, this one and The Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs from America's Test Kitchen. This was the first to arrive and she loves it. She carried it around the house for days, put in sticky note tabs for recipes she wanted to try. But more on that later.

This is a beautiful cookbook. Full color glossy pages. Heavy weight paper. Solid binding. And very well designed and made. It is a great book to flip through and get ideas from. Or to plan whole meals. The chapters in the volume are:

Breakfast & Brunch
Sandwiches
Snack Like You Mean It
Noodles & Pasta
Sheet Pan Fever
Extreme Bowling:
Grain Bowls & Salads
Food Parties for the Fun Food Fans
One-Pot Meals
Breads
Sides
Sugar Time!

Prior to the chapters on specific foods there are 5 short sections to get you started. They are:

Hi! (An introduction)
How to Cook Any Recipe
The 20 (or So) Tools to Cook Almost Anything
Insta Your Dishes: Food photography Hacks and Tips
Kitchen Decoded

My daughter picked 5 dishes she wanted to prepare and made the family brunch. We had to purchase several ingredients we did not have in house. That first foray she made:

Brown Sugar Bacon
Siracha Glazed Bacon
Mustard Glazed Bacon
BLT on Artisan Bread (with bacon from above and avocado.)
Scrambled Eggs
And French Toast

It was a smash hit. The bacon and bacon sandwich she made for me blew me away. At 10 she still needs significant help in the kitchen but is a quick learner, and eager apprentice.

She loves this book and give it a solid 5/5 stars. And I am certain we will have many other meals prepared from this volume over the weeks and months to come.

An excellent cookbook for younger aspiring chefs. A great place to start.

Our 7th grade son has gotten so much inspiration, pride, and delicious results from this book already! It empowered him to get cooking in a way that is a joy to see and he has made us some seriously delicious meals — AND then cleaned up!! Melissa’s recipes always work and always taste even better than you expect. What a healthy, happy new activity for our bored tween during quarantine. Thank you!!!
