Easy Peasy by Mary Contini

Book Description

Mary Contini and Pru Irvine are passionate fans of real food, and firm believers in teaching children to appreciate it too. Both authors are involved in teaching sessions for children of all ages and have learnt at first hand that what kids really want is to be able to cook properly. Drawing on this experience and on their vast knowledge of food and cookery, they have written EASY PEASY, a new kind of cookery book for kids. Instead of decorating frozen pizzas or making ice-cream sundaes, this book will teach you how to cook for real. Going from the basic building blocks of preperation, through the different food groups and on to different ways of using the skills you have learned, EASY PEASY will lead you to complete competence in cooking food and combining the dishes you have learnt into interesting meals. But the authors never forget that cooking should also be fun - with helpful hints, jokes and a totally fuss-free approach, they appeal to children who are just starting to cook, but this is a book that will be kept and used until they are well into their teens.
