Format: Paperback
this book is the perfect tool for children who want to move beyond basic cooking and prepare real food that tastes good and the rest of the family will want to share. It is non-patronising and has been a great source book for my children - aged 10 to 14, and for the many groups of children I work with of all ages. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it - minimal assistance - if any required from an adult.

I was shown this book by a friend who is a fantastic cook. This was a wedding present to them and although the cover doesn't do it any justice the inside and recipes are brilliant!
I do cook and i am what i call a 'good cook' though stuck in a rut with the same meals and sometimes, due to a hectic lifestyle, want to russel up something quick, easy and different.
I was so impressed i brought myself and my eldest daughter the book. It makes you want to cook. It is so easy and simple to understand and the recipes are great too.
+Highly recommend, not just for kids and beginners but the rest of us too!

Fantastic cookbook. I actually already had this and love it so much I've purchased it as a present! Very basic recipes some but very tasty and effective. My kids love to cook and the pictures throughout make it a perfect recipe book for them to follow.

Bought this so my kids 6 and 8 could read the recipes whilst i get on with making things...bit too basic for an adult but perfect for when the kids want to help.

Some nice and easy recipes and also a few fancy things too, definitely worth a buy.

I got this for myself years ago, when I was a stay at home mum to start cooking food from scratch. It was a great book to start with as it assumes you are a beginner like the title. I have since bought this for friends who cannot cook and they also found it easy to use.
