4.0 out of 5 stars Good For Big Bairns Too!, 2 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maw Broon's Cooking with Bairns: Recipes and Basics to Help Kids (Hardcover)
I have bought all of the Maw Broon's cookbooks so far and, despite being an adult, this one is my favourite. The book is beautifully produced with vintage Broons comic strips and all of the usual humour you would expect from the series.

What I particularly like about this book is the fact that the recipes are typed, I found the handwriting hard to decipher in the other Maw Broon books but this was much easier to read.

Onto the recipes and they range from very simple to more complicated, good old favourites like stovies are given a twist by being made with chicken and a plain old burger is a haggisburger instead. My favourite recipe is the one for tablet which turned out lovely and was a big hit with all of my family.

My one criticism of the book is that some of the recipes are a bit old fashioned like marzipan fruits. I don't think the recipes are all child friendly either as I doubt if you would trust a kid with a pan of boiling sugar to make tablet. It is a gift I would happily give to a nostalgic adult who loves the Broons or an older (10+) child.
