Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
From baking chocolate-chip cookies to frying falafel burgers, this tasty volume of the "Super Skills" series focuses on one of the activities kids love best. Starting with the basics (equipment, safety precautions like keeping separate knives and cutting boards for meat), big attractive pages use color close-ups to display ingredients and results, while clear, colorful drawings demonstrate techniques of mixing, chopping, grating, and peeling. No-cook cooking (coleslaw, salmon pate) gets cooks off and stirring, followed by easy menus featuring pea soup or stuffed potatoes. After that, it is on to favorites: marinara meatball pasta, noodle and chicken stir fry, and burgers with ingredients like chickpeas or topped with Greek tzatziki sauce of yogurt, mint, and cucumber. Gradually introducing more sophisticated dishes, Turnbull offers Asian curries using coconut milk, chili peppers, and golden rice with almonds and raisins. Desserts come last from cheesecake to cookies, but also starring fruit desserts like baked apples and smoothies blended with yogurt. Keeping up with culinary trends, several pages suggest learning about world foods, growing one's own ingredients, and the power of attractive presentation. Cooking as a possible career is explored; culinary skills could lead to college courses, becoming a chef or even owning a restaurant. Or what about food stylist or cake creator, temptingly illustrated by a gorgeous white cake decorated with tumbling roses? Teachers may find this book useful for plans involving manual skills, art appreciation, problem solving, and creative thinking, possibly teamwork or inspiring stories and poems about food. Parents will like the emphasis on healthful foods (fruits, vegetables, herbs, plain yogurt) and the suggestion to kids that too much heavy food makes eaters uncomfortable. A glossary and a list of websites for young cooks will help aspiring chefs on their way. Reviewer: Barbara L. Talcroft
