The recipes in this cookbook are HORRIBLE! Apparently “America’s Test Kitchen” didn’t actually test these recipes before publishing this cookbook. Don’t waste your money.

Bought this on a whim as a gift for my 7YO - she's made three recipes in two days and is planning out her next meals. Well written, great photos. Easy for a 7yo to follow. Very pleased with this purchase!

This gorgeous, full-color hardcover book is amazing!! Bought it for my 11yo and she has already {successfully!!) made several delicious meals out of it- including homemade marinara sauce! I can not say enough about this awesome book!! We plan on buying it again as gifts! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!! Our 7yo is cooking from it too. Also, the recipes are for REAL FOOD- mostly from scratch!!

I regularly use ATK recipes, and find them consistently delicious. I purchased this book for the daughter of a friend, on her 11th birthday. The daughter picked a recipe (crispy tofu with green beans), we discussed the ingredients and the steps, and she was able to make it for lunch for her mom and herself with no additional help. She didn't have any previous cooking experience. Her mother reported that lunch was delicious, and she had always wondered how restaurants made their tofu crispy, and now she knew because her daughter had taught her about tossing the tofu in corn starch before sauteing it. My only complaint about the book is that it has a weird smell.

Bought this as a gift for my niece, but from what I saw flipping through the pages it not only has recipes but also covers kitchen basics such as how to use knives safely. My niece loves it and her mom says this cookbook is great.

This looks like a great cookbook for my grandson! He has started cooking at 12 years old, so he doesn’t want a “children’s” cookbook....he wants the real deal! This looks like a great one for him!

I have a 6 year old and 4 year old daughters and they cannot get enough of this cookbook. They love picking our things to make together and the recipes really are simple enough for them to do most of it. The recipes are also very kid friendly and I have two very picky eaters.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this cookbook actually more than I had expected to! High quality hardback with easy to read recipes and tips! Visually appealing pictures. Lots of little tip boxes and the resource pages ROCK! Bought one for my classroom and one for the cousins to each have. They are all looking forward to bringing something they cooked to the next family gathering. Cousins and my students having been oohing and aging over the recipes! My favorite part are the tips written by kids who have tried the recipes!

Good book for beginner - needs more recipes for meals

D - 6 years ago, Verified purchaser
The cook book has lots of photos and gives very good step by step instructions for the beginner. But they did not need to waste paper on how to make sandwiches, any child over the age of 7 knows how to make a grilled sandwich, a Quesadilla or how to make lemonade. There should have been more recipes for meals.

I bought it for a Christmas gift for my great nephew who has set a goal of learning to cook. It has plenty of photos, which I think will be inventive for a young cook along with lots of tips and techniques.

This will be a gift to my granddaughter for Christmas. She enjoys cooking, I can's think of a better resource than a cookbook from America's Test Kitchen, which I use as a resource (the adult version) for myself.
