Few activities are as much fun as cooking with mom or dad. This lovely cookbook offers the perfect balance of quick bakes and a few more ambitious projects, such as chicken risotto (made with basmati not the harder-to-work-with arborio rice, but you could always substitute the real thing) and a blueberry sponge cake. I love the introduction of the food type, such as rice or tomatoes, and the explanation of what they are and how to cook them. There’s also a section on healthy food – good for teaching children about food and letting them appreciate fresh, healthy ingredients. Easy to read – a great gift book for aspiring little chefs.
