20 Recipes Kids Should Know


One of my fondest childhood memories was helping my grandma make homemade cinnamon rolls. I'm talking about from scratch, not the ones from the refrigerator section in the scare you to death when they pop open cans. I loved being part of every step of the process from measuring the ingredients, to mixing, and even waiting for them to rise so we could bake them. Because I knew all that hard work ended with ooey gooey hot cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven. Cooking in the kitchen can be a wonderful bonding experience, and is a life-skill that every kid out there deserves to learn starting at home. Fast forward to today and you'll find me in the kitchen with my daughter baking cakes and teaching her how to perfect a grilled cheese. I want her to grow up with memories just like the ones I had. And for those times I'm not around to help her in the kitchen, or when she's feeling independent and wants to do it on her own she has this fun new cookbook featuring 20 Recipes Kids Should Know.

About the Book: The perfect book for children, this fun and engaging cookbook is written and photographed by a pair of young sisters for budding chefs. Whether they're helping stir cake batter or producing their own YouTube cooking channel, kids of all ages are getting increasingly busy in the kitchen. This cookbook features twenty classic recipes that are fun, healthy, adaptable, and easy to prepare. From banana bread and the perfect grilled cheese to breaded chicken and apple pie, each recipe is written in a clear, accessible style that young cooks of every level will be able to follow. The author is a young chef whose love of cooking developed from her own family's food traditions like baking popovers with her grandmother and Sunday-night pizza making. By teaching kids basic recipes that can be adapted in endless ways, this book is the perfect launching pad to finding their way around the kitchen--or launching their own cooking careers.

About the author and photographer: ESME and CALISTA WASHBURN are sisters living in New York City. Esme, who is in middle school, is an amateur chef and cooking enthusiast. She has learned everything she knows from her grandmother. Calista, a recent high school graduate and budding photographer, loves helping out in the kitchen and eating the delicious food that Esme cooks.
