  • I bought this book for my 11 year old daughter who has taken more interest in baking over the last few months. This book is very descriptive and appropriate for new cooks. So far she has made us pancakes and the chocolate chip cookies and both recipies were very good! I am looking forward to what she makes next.
  • This is from America’s Test Kitchen, so pay attention to the “…for Young Chefs” aspect of the title and realize it’s more than just a “kid’s cookbook.” First, there are ATK’s trademark tutorials on tools, techniques and the science of cooking. And then there are the recipes, which are largely from scratch ingredients and respect kid-chefs’ tastes and talents -- breakfast proteins and sweets; snacks (hummus, salsa and guacamole come to mind); sandwiches like a BLT wrap and a caprese panini (a hip version of grilled cheese); main dishes; sides (note my only quibble: I doubt many of these would appeal to kids!); and desserts.Each recipe is presented via a two-page spread that includes a color photo of the finished dish; the number of servings and preparation time; a training routine about assembling ingredients and equipment; and then preparation instructions. Each recipe also notes the level of skill required to prepare, plus whether a knife, microwave, stovetop or oven is required (good info for parents). Nutritional information for every dish is collected into a table at the back of the book.I have a lot of books from ATK and this one feels unique. My mother-in-law would have loved it for her junior-high home economics classroom. I’d have loved it as a kid -- and heck, I’m excited to cook from it now!
  • I love this cookbook!! I learned something.from it,and I am no beginner. I did not notice it was from America's Test Kitchen until deli dry, but it is and the practicality is present on every page. It lies flat open. The colors are.gorgeous. The I structions.are.clear. The recipes.are interesting a d practical. It is perfect for any beginning cook from age ten up, including new.housekeepers. It would make a great wedding gift.
  • I grew up as a latchkey kid and my mom let me cook for myself as long as I cleaned up and didn’t burn the place down. Now as an adult I love to cook when many people I know can’t find their way around a kitchen. This latest offering from America’s Test Kitchen is a great way to start ‘em young with easy to master recipes so you can instill a love of cooking early in kids that will benefit them the rest of their lives.
  • This was delivered on Friday and I woke up to avocado toast prepared by my 10 year old on Sunday. She adores this cookbook and I am 100% here for my child cooking for me for a change! This book has boosted her confidence and encouraged her to try new things - Saturday night she made tofu and geeen beans! You will not be disappointed with this book.
