I Want to be a Chef: Baking by Murdoch Books Test Kitchen


I Want to be a Chef: Baking by Murdoch Books Test Kitchen

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.
