Children’s reading books, toys, and games are often targeted at specific age groups. In Cook School, Amanda Grant teaches core cooking skills designed for children aged 3–5 years, 5–7 years, and 7–11 years. Each skill is presented at the stage when a child’s development, self-confidence, and independence are ready. With plenty of step-by-step photographs for children to follow and easy, tasty, and fun recipes that they will love to learn, this is an invaluable book for parents to help teach their kids practical kitchen skills that will remain useful throughout life. As well as explaining hygiene and kitchen safety, there are more than 50 recipes specially suited to particular age groups.
Amanda Grant’s passion is encouraging as many children as possible to be excited about food, to enjoy cooking and to help families eat well. She has worked as food editor for a variety of food magazines and has written for many national newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian and Delicious. Amanda is the author of several successful cookbooks, including Healthy Lunchboxes for Kids. Two of her cookbooks were listed in BBC Good Food’s Top 5 Children’s Cookbooks, one of which was the previous edition of Kids in the Kitchen (originally published as Cook School).
