Emeril Lagasse, the celeb chef who BAMMED! his way into America's kitchens, follows up his successful cookbook for kids, Emeril's There's a Chef in My Soup!, with this delectably delightful winner for the whole family.
Aimed at bringing everyone together in the kitchen, Lagasse's book includes 76 recipes, from appetizers to desserts, that are easy for kids to participate in but difficult enough so that adults will need to help. Accompanied by colorful illustrations and photos, the cookbook is divided into several color-coded sections by course, featuring such yummy recipes as "Emeril's Favorite Fried Egg Sandwich," "Talk About a Taco Salad," "Fondue for You," and "Perfect Roast Chicken." Lagasse also includes helpful safety tips and "The Nuts and Bolts" of kitchen tools, while a "Good Things to Know" section -- spelling out techniques like hulling strawberries and measuring -- even provides the handy recipe for Emeril's "Baby Bam."
Sparked with Emeril's own brand of style, this mouthwatering read should have no trouble kicking up family time a notch or two. The recipes have thorough, numbered steps and include lists of tools needed, letting kids easily take the lead in gathering ingredients, reading, or creating meals, depending on their age. A sure addition to that cookbook collection. Matt Warner
