Chef Academy Review

Cooking / Food Fascinating Facts Featured Books for 7+ readers Featured Books for 9+ readers

Children fascinated by TV cookery programmes will learn just what’s involved in being a chef from this book, as well as lots about nutrition, hygiene and even kitchen equipment. The introduction explains that being a chef is not just about making delicious food, though obviously that’s important, but is also about managing a team of cooks, buying the best ingredients and making sure that your restaurant is a success – leadership skills and an understanding of maths and science are all part of that. No wonder then that the book is so varied, full of all sorts of interesting information presented over appealing, colourful pages. Children are invited to observe what’s in their own kitchens, as well as given write-in challenges to complete. There are a couple of simple but tasty recipes to follow too. Fun and informative. ~ Andrea Reece
