Product Description

Amazon Review

Do restaurant menus featuring full-colour food photos kick your salivary glands into high gear? Angela Wilkes's inviting, heavily illustrated cookbook offers the same satisfaction of seeing exactly what you're going to get--along with the ensuing hunger pangs. Children can follow each recipe step by step, with photographs that show what you're supposed to do, how to do it, and when. Thankfully, the 60 recipes are appealing dishes the whole family will want to eat, from Salade Nicoise and Filled Crepes to the more basic Tacos and Guacamole and Spicy Chicken Burgers. The chapters include: "Before You Start", "Kitchen Rules", "Super-Fast Snacks" (Cheater's Pizzas, Crunchy Crostini, Fruit Smoothies), "Speedy Meals" (Classic Omelettes, Vegetable Soups, Chicken Curry and Rice); "Delightful Desserts" (Lemon Cheesecake, Fruit Crumble, Tiramisu), "Treats and Sweets" (Oat Bars, Chocolate Dips, Macaroons), "Picture Glossary" (Grilling, Stir-Frying, Marinating) and a helpful index. The book provides quantities of ingredients in both imperial and metric measurements and clearly organizes the ingredients lists. The overall effect is dazzling--youngsters will find themselves right at home in the kitchen, whipping up simple or elaborate dishes with confidence and glee. (Ages 9 to 12)

5.0 out of 5 stars Speechless 7 Jun 2003
Angela Wilkes is a God! No matter how hard I have tried I have never been able to get my children into cooking - until this book came along. Its quality is in its unique simpilicity. The writing is clear and easy to comprehend and the colourful photographs make everything even easier to understand. I would recommend this masterpiece to anyone who likes cooking, young or old. Thank you Angela.

5.0 out of 5 stars Salivating yours 16 Jun 2000
By A Customer
This book is just fabulous! Being 19 years old and loving cooking I have all sorts of recipes at home. But this book . . . with all its photos and so easy to understand instructions you just can't spoil those dishes. Even profiteroles seem so easy. You know, this book is in fact dangerous : everytime I read it, I get hungry, of course, but then when I have a look what we have in our fridge - I become sad . . . Buy it, try it and love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant recipe book 27 Feb 2010
Apart from the fact that both copies of my book say that the author is Angela Wilkes (which can be seen on the illustration) this is a great recipe book for both children and adults. It covers little cakes and biscuits/cookies as you would expect in a childrens' recipe book but also savoury snacks and main meals too which I think helps to make children realize that there's more to baking than just making cakes. Easy to follow step by step instructions and pictures. The index also contains pictures instead of the tradtional text list which is easier for younger children especially, to see what they'd like to make. I bought a copy of this for my girls (then aged 2 and 8) and more recently for my 3 year old niece. Would recommend to anyone especially with children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Start! 4 Feb 2009
My son, in Year 7, had just started cooking and loved it so i brought him this book to start him off at home.

He loves it. Easy to understand with great graphics. He wants to try all the recipes and is enthused totally.

Long may it continue as I hate cooking!

4.0 out of 5 stars My Review 20 July 2009
By Shiv L
I am very pleased overall with my purchase of this book. A detailed description of the slight wear and tear would have been good, but as the condition of the book is fine generally, this was not entirely necessary. Apart from that, all I can say is that I would definitely recommend this seller to others!
