Description



About the Book



An exciting new book from The Culinary Institute of America that teaches kids to cook and think like a chef, with 100 delicious recipes, essential techniques, insider tips, fun facts, and more



Book Synopsis



Learn how to cook and think like a chef from the best of the best--the experts at The Culinary Institute of America

Aspiring chefs turn to The Culinary Institute of America for top-tier training--and now younger cooks can too. Coauthored by chef-instructor (and parent) Mark Ainsworth, this book is for kids ages ten to fourteen who love to cook or who want to learn how, from the perspective of the nation's best culinary college. It begins with techniques--from key cooking methods to staying safe in the kitchen to how food fuels your body--then augments those lessons with more than one hundred recipes for dishes that kids (and their families and friends) will love, from Chinese "Takeout" Chicken and Broccoli to Mexican Street Corn Salad to DIY Hummus to Raspberry Shave Ice. These recipes are easy enough that beginners can try them with confidence, but are loaded with insider tips, fun facts, kitchen vocab, and other teaching moments so that more adventurous junior cooks can use them as a springboard to take their skills to the next level, express their culinary creativity, and have fun in the kitchen!



Review Quotes




Amazon, Best Children's Books of the Year: NonFiction "Recipes in the Culinary Institute of America's new cookbook for children are not dumbed down. Pizza starts with dough, not an English muffin. And the book opens with good habits for kitchen safety -- for the food as well as the chef. (It is recommended for children ages 10 to 14, but an adult who has never really cooked could learn a few lessons, too.) This bright and engaging book explains equipment, knife work, cooking methods and how to taste and create flavor. Sidebars headed "Think Like a Chef" offer variations and tips, and strewn throughout are notes about ingredients and their histories." --The New York Times "If you have a budding cook in the family, keep "The Young Chef" in mind. Summer is coming." --Houston Chronicle "Ainsworth and the Culinary Institute of America have created a solid and comprehensive cooking manual that has something to offer for new and practiced young cooks. With clear and succinct discussions on sanitary practices and knife handling, as well as strong tutorials on cooking methods and the creation of flavorful food, this title emphasizes important cooking fundamentals in an orderly and bold way... VERDICT: An extensive resource for recipes and culinary methods; a recommended purchase." --School Library Journal --
