Kid in the Kitchen : 100 Recipes and Tips for Young Home Cooks
By Melissa Clark, Author. The New York Times Food columnist and beloved home cooking authority spins 100 all-new recipes for a robust new audience of home chefs: kids ages 8-14! Melissa Clark, who has more range than any food writer today (and a young daughter to boot), marries the flavors beloved by adult fans of her bestselling cookbooks and her work in the New York Times with recipes that any kid age 8-14, whether cooking-curious or already kitchen-puttering, can make and build on, including Brown Butter French Toast, Sweet or Savory Dutch Babies, Burgers with Kimchi Mayo, Gingerbread Snacking Cake, and No-Machine Ice Cream. These one hundred recipes (each with allergy and special diet info) are unmistakbly Melissa, just simplified. With seventy-five full-color photographs and helpful lessons on topics such as how to measure, the ingredients you really need (anchovies, guys!), stuff you can fudge (herbs), and how to clean up like nothing ever happened, this must-have resource is both friendly and authoritative. For ages 8 and up.
