Review By SpizeVilla:
- I bought ATK’s Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs as a gift for a buddy who wants to learn to cook. She liked the book, the simplicity of the instructions, and the explanations.
- This book was requested by my 9-year-old niece, and I must admit, it is an excellent cookbook. The instructions are simple to follow (as much as my daughter CAN follow directions since she already know everything…) She normally makes everything herself and doesn’t require any assistance. And her inventions are delicious (the more so because I didn’t have to assist; I despise cooking). However, certain things are strange, such as chopping a stick of butter into 1 inch pieces. And, in my opinion, whipping the frosting for so long gives it an odd consistency.. But she’s pleased to contribute to our dinners, and that’s enough of a reward. I’d really suggest it for your aspiring baker.
- The recipes are well-organized, with separate sections for ingredients and equipment needed, such as specific-size pans, parchment paper, and so on. This is helpful for young cooks because they don’t have to sift through the recipe looking for specific ingredients. The recipe includes numbered instructions to make the procedure easier to follow. The empanadas, especially the homemade dough, were delicious! It was flaky and delicious, unlike anything I’d ever prepared before. This book is best suited for older children who have some cooking expertise. I’d estimate around 11 years old. I’ve tried a few of the recipes in this book, and they’re all great. I definitely recommend it for kids who have some cooking experience and want to improve their skills.
- These books contain delicious dishes that may be made with readily available items. Instructions are provided in great depth. The peanut butter cookies were created by me. This is the greatest I’ve ever produced. (Soft). Before Christmas, I’ll be busy replicating recipes.
- I like that this baking book includes a range of recipes, not only desserts. Keep in mind that some of these recipes produce a lot of food. I believe they changed them to smaller batches to make stirring easier for inexperienced hands. I’m so pleased I doubled the chocolate crinkle cookie recipe. Wow. I had intended to share a dish with neighbours, but I delivered it with some reluctance because we wanted more for ourselves. The individual pizzas were a great way to spend a Sunday night. Each recipe includes notes from young recipe testers, and my kids have enjoyed providing their own critiques of each dish. For small children, the step-by-step instructions and availability of photos are really useful.
- The meals are tasty, and the instructions are thorough and straightforward. My daughter was just flipping through the cookbook and cooking the dishes that seemed nice at first, but after I took a look, I asked her if she would just go through and make each one! As a baker, I appreciate how this book not only delivers tasty recipes, but also teaches youngsters proper technique in the process. We’ll also be buying the culinary book in this series. This is an incredibly well-written book.
- The book is excellent; it begins with a number of cooking fundamentals, including kitchen safety. The recipes are easy to follow and understand. It’s quite inventive because it’s made using minimal components.
- I bought this cookbook as a gift for a budding chef/baker! This is her first cookbook, and she was giddy with delight when she received it!! Very simple recipes with easy-to-understand pictures! A must-have for any young baker!
- The recipes appear to be delicious, however they are written in American and imperial measurements, which we cannot use because we use metric measurements. A conversion table is included in the back, but it is too complex for a child who is also learning about weight.
- The only issue I have is that the measurements are in American units, so it takes some effort to figure out how much a “stick” of butter is worth and how many degrees Fahrenheit the oven should be set to. The recipes are appealing, and it’s an excellent resource for my 10-year-old son. Easy-to-follow recipes with illustrations! For any little Baker, this is a must-have!!
