Cool Kids Cook is an informative, fun and stylish first cookbook for the pre-teen market. Children from ages 7 to 14 are getting more and more interested in getting into the kitchen. Moreover, they want a cook book that looks quite cool and grown-up, has lots of interesting and fun facts about food background, but that doesn't include recipes for rice crispy cakes and doesn't patronise. This books aims to do just that - to empower kids to a point where they could put a great supper on the table (with a bit of help/guidance for the first few years) and then give them a few exotic dishes with which to show off. This is NOT 'children's food', but real, achievable dishes that teach children about how to eat healthily, shop cannily and learn the vital basic cooking skills to set them up for life.



Alongside the classic recipes for muffins and a great birthday cake, you will also find nutritious ideas such as fish en papilotte, adventurous stir fries, vegetable slaws or homemade granola. 50 recipes will teach the basic skills and offer variations to build on those skills. With easy-to-follow step-by-step photography, a fun graphic style to the food facts and kitchen safety, plus loads of basic info on how to shop, plan and balance your diet, this is the book to get kids cooking properly for life.

I have been very impressed with this book as its a great book for older children. It has a good mix of meals and simple recipes along with interesting facts about food. I had been looking for something that had a little more than fancy cakes for my son to try cooking and this book is perfect. There are some great starter recipes, that they then tell you how to change slightly to make into something a little different.
Perfect for my ten year old son to start cooking for himself.

Very nice cookbook aimed at older children. Instructions are clear and concise with lots of colourful pictures. Lessons on nutrition and basic cooking skills are well laid out. It encourages children to get involved in cooking and can help with rectifying fussy eating habits.

As a family we love cooking, so when we found this book we were super excited to try out some of the recipes. The steps are easy to follow and the pictures are helpful too, simple for any child, and adult. There are also tips to help the children with cooking techniques. 
For food lovers this is a fab book.

Cool Kids really can cook! This book makes cooking really fun for little ones. It's bright, clear and easy to follow. We really like the additional information about where food comes from.

This book is very well laid out, looks attractive and has loads of brilliant information about different foods as well as tips on how to prepare them.  However for my older two children the recipes are just too adventurous.  They like most of the sweet recipes but the savoury ingredients just don't appeal to them.  However if you have children who are great at trying a variety of textures and flavours then this book is worth a try!

I quite liked this book as I love cooking and baking but there weren't as many recipes for cakes and biscuits as I would have liked. A lot of the recipes were for main courses and will be good when I'm a bit older. I think children about 10 or more would like this better.

Both my 8 year old and 3 year old used this book. The recipes were fantastic and the information about the vegetables and where food come from was brilliant. They have made 2 recipes out of the book already. With its easy to follow step by step guide and illustration it was easy for them to follow.
