5.0 out of 5 stars Proper family cooking for adults and their little helpers, 23 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Daddy Cooks: 100 Fresh New Recipes for the Whole Family (Hardcover)
I'm a keen cook and as such I have many, many cookbooks strewn around my kitchen. However two things bug me about the cookbooks I've purchaed in the past, firstly it's rare to find a cookbook that contains recipes that the whole family can enjoy from my little toddler to grandpa and secondly, buying a cookbook is sometimes a leap of faith - will I find the ingredients? Am I capable of cooking the recipes? Do I actually want to cook from this book time and time again?

No such problems with Nick Coffers genius cookbook. I'm a follower of his blog so I was expecting good things from this book and I haven't been disappointed so far. All his recipes are written in a wonderfully easy to follow style and are prefaced with a little passage about the recipe and what it's all about. You can find all the ingredients in your local highstreet, there's no specialist equipment to purchase and all the recipes can be rustled up in no time at all. But by far the best thing about this cookbook is that at the end of the cooking process you end up with fresh, tasty, family friendly food.

There is also a big. big bonus with this cookbook - although I imagine adults will love cooking from it, the recipes are fabulous to do with your children! My daughter is 19 months old and already helps me prepare lunch, dinner and bake cakes. She has helped (just like Archie) in a few of the recipes now and loves to flick through the book whilst i'm cooking pointing out the pictures of Archie and the food.

If you buy only one cookbook this year, make it this one - you will not be disappointed, it will not languish on the shelf untouched, it will be used, battered and covered in food debris though!!
