This is a wonderful new cookbook for kids. The good people at Mesorah Publications have spared no expense creating an accessible and appealing cookbook that is full of fun for both children and adults. The brightly colored design sense and jump-off-the-page graphics will surely grab any reader. Here’s an example of instructions from page 9 (colored green and pink) on how to keep your kitchen kosher: “Be a Kosher label detective…Meat and dairy never mix…Yuk! Creepy crawly things don’t belong in kosher food!”
A full-page, irresistible color photo accompanies each mouth-watering recipe. The author’s introduction states that all the recipes in the book are for “real food— nothing silly like gummy worms crawling out of cookie crumbs. The concept is to challenge kids and to inspire them to want to cook more.” It is reassuring to note that real, live kids tested all recipes. This would make a wonderful gift book for any budding cook, adults and college students included. Highly recommended for ages 9 and up.
