They both instantly loved this book, saw lots of things that they fancied cooking, but, unlike many other cookbooks, felt confident enough to give them a go.
My sons are very dyslexic, but they found the layout easy to follow and the pictures useful.
These are not groundbreaking recipes, or even the best renditions of well-known dishes, but they work fine, are well illustrated and introduce young cooks to a range of techniques in a very straightforward, jargon free way.
There are also (from my point of view) helpful comments on diet and nutrition, delivered in a very matter of fact way.
Impressive all in all
I have a son who is about Sam's age. When he was younger we enjoyed doing various activities together, but with the dawn of the teenage years and the allure of the Playstation, I found it more and more difficult to find common ground.
I have always enjoyed cooking and after seeing Sam on BBC Breakfast I rushed out and bought the book. It was an instant success and together we have already made a few recipes which were enjoyed by the whole family, which in itself was a reward for my son.
This isn't just a children's book. It is a serious cookbook, with serious recipes, that does not talk down to teenagers. Sam manages to explain both simple and innovative recipes in familiar, fun and straightforward language.
