Back to our regularly scheduled post:
I have been cooking for as long as I can remember. My first “job” as my mom’s assistant chef was performed while standing on a sturdy, barn red chair at the side of the chopping block.
As a bibliophile, I feel the need to own a gazillion cookbooks.
Here are my favorites for the young cook:
Better Homes and Gardens: Junior Cook Book for the Hostess & Host of Tomorrow— reprint of the 1955 original– also, a good gift for the older chef that may have used it as a kid
Easy Bake Party Planner — Easy Bake oven recipes
The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Children’s Cookbook
The Spatulatta Cookbook — look for it in the scholastic book papers sent home from school
Rookie Cookie Cookbook
Just for Kids
Usborne Farmyard Tales Children’s Cookbook
Alpha-Bakery: Children’s Cookbook & The Rainbow Bakery: A Color-Full Adventure Children’s Cookbook — send for these two in the mail. Look for the form on Gold Metal Flour.
Curriculum based cookbooks:
Book Cooks: Literature-based Classroom Cooking — for K-3rd grades. I believe there is another one for older students, also. Hm… not sure. You’ll have to dig.
The Little House Cookbook — the cooking adventure inspired by Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House” series. A personal favorite … I have worn through two copies growing up.
The Pooh Cook Book –the cooking adventure inspired by A.A. Milne’s “Winnie the Pooh”
Perhaps, another time I will give a more in depth review of each in turn.
