Gets Kids In The Kitchen
on 23 January 2010
"The Silver Spoon for Children" is a fantastic scaled down version of the classic recipe book "The Silver Spoon". It gives a great selection of recipes that both kids and adults can have a go at attempting. There are also simple, great illustrations to help guide the user through the steps. Even reading the short sideboards of the history of the dish helps the young chef get involved with the food they are creating. The book is appealing to the eye and not overly complicated, so kids (and adults!) have an easy time creating interesting, tasty and healthy dishes.
It gives a good solid foundation of classic, Italian recipes that, once learned, kids can build on and continue making into adulthood. Not only do my kids enjoy using it, but it is also my gift of choice to friends with children. It is a great book to help kids learn how to cook proper, healthy dishes from a young age.
