Delia Smith wrote How to Cook in 1998 in an attempt to teach cookery skills to adults who didn't know how to boil eggs properly. Mary Contini and Pru Irvine are attempting to prevent the problem by writing Easy Peasy, which is aimed at introducing children to the joy of cooking and eating well. "If you catch an adult reading this book," they write in the introduction, "be kind". "They may also want to learn to cook absolutely fabulous, incredibly simple and gorgeous food." They reckon that cooking is a life skill and that once you know the basics you can survive anywhere. And if children have time to watch television, they have enough time to learn a skill which will serve them well throughout their life. Easy Peasy explains how to cut and peel various types of fruit and vegetables. Photographs show various kitchen appliances, including basics such as whisks, tea strainers and ladles. The book is divided into recipes using potatoes, eggs, pasta and bread. There are also recipes for soups and cakes. All the recipes, like Gold Fish Cakes and Greece Salad, are aimed at offering some amusement. However, it's likely that Chocolate Mouse will be more popular than garlic-laced Knock-out Bread.

This book is really easy to understand and has got great recipes too.
Most childrens' menus are stuffed to the brim with absolute junk food.
I think that children also want to be independent for some things.
So this book has really made a difference in my life. Let it make one in yours!
