I Want to be a Chef: Baking Learn to Cook More Than 100 Great Recipes by Various

Not for them the archetypal 'kids' food'. What they want to cook and eat is what the professionals are showing them. And, by mastering a few simple techniques, many seriously 'grown-up' items are well within their grasp. In I Want to Be a Chef: Baking, the aim of the game is spectacular cakes, desserts and cookies and light-as-air sweet and savoury pastries. Making meringues, sausage rolls, fruit tarts, cupcakes, iced cookies and a whole lot of other treats is achievable with clear instructions, step-by-step photography for some of the trickier techniques and beautiful images of the finished items. With more than 100 recipes to choose from, ranging from simple to show-off, young chefs will be baking just like a professional...maybe with a cooking show on television, too! Key points: everyone knows someone who can bake a spectacular cake and whip up featherlight pastries. With this book, that person is likely to be the child in the family; television cooking shows are inspiring a generation of new young chefs who are hungry for great recipes and simple-to-follow guidance; the more than 100 recipes are modern, great-tasting and teach specific skills; when a child learns to cook, it's an investment for life; clear step-by-step photography; advice on working safely and efficiently in the kitchen.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
