Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Part of the "First Facts: First Cookbooks" series, this cookbook is full of serenely simple, and fabulously fun recipes that even young children can make. With recipes like Prima Ballerinas, Nutcracker Snacker and Tutu Toppers, young chefs are sure to enjoy cooking creatively. Most recipes in this collection make two to three servings, which makes them perfect for after ballet rehearsal snacks or fun one-on-one creative time with a parent. The recipes are simple, and as the generally rely on prepared ingredients, they require little or no stovetop cooking, making them safe for even the youngest aspiring chefs. Steps requiring adult help and supervision are clearly marked, and the introduction also contains a reminder that, just as ballet stars need a teacher in order to learn the basic steps, new cooks need to learn from parents or other adults in the kitchen. Schuette provides tips and hints for personalizing the recipes to fit individual tastes, and the recipes are designed to teach real cooking skills, such as measuring, mixing and following directions, in simple applications. A glossary defines the more difficult terms, and for those who want to learn more, a code is provided to access safe, pre-researched websites related to the book on facthound.com. An introduction to the tools and techniques used will help young chefs follow the recipes with minimal adult supervision, giving amateur cooks a sense of accomplishment, as they can say that "I did it myself!"
