Beginner's Cookbook by Fiona Watt

This is a new edition of the hugely popular Beginners Cookbook , which introduces children (and kitchen-shy adults!) to the basic techniques of cooking through a selection of mouth-watering recipes. Recipes include ideas for pizza and pasta dishes, vegetarian dishes and delicious cakes and cookies, giving novice cooks something to create for every occasion. Each recipe is shown through easy, step-by-step instructions. Concealed spiral binding makes the book practical to use in the kitchen.


'I would definitely recommend this book to children who love to cook and those who want to take those first steps into the kitchen' - First News'
