Turn Your Kid into a Star Chef with Food Network Magazine’s Newest Cookbook
There's no better time to bring kids into the kitchen.
If you’ve ever watched an episode of Kids Baking Championship or Chopped Junior, you already know that kids can create amazing things when you bring them into a kitchen. From gravity-defying confetti cakes to sweet treats masquerading as savory foods, there isn’t much kids can’t do. Nobody knows this better than the editors at Food Network Magazine — their new cookbook is full of recipes any kid can make. Here’s a taste of what you and your kids can expect when you order a copy today.
More Than 150 Kid-Friendly Recipes
Though there are a few that will require slight adult supervision, all the recipes in The Big, Fun Kids Cookbook have been tested again and again to ensure that kids can actually make them — even kids who’ve never cooked! Whether your children are looking for a creative way to transform their morning toast or they want to mix-up their afternoon grilled cheese sandwich, the possibilities are endless with this cookbook. We love the “Design Your Own Recipe” pages, which allow kids to put their own spin on granola bars, cereal treats, stuffed French toast and more. There are also hundreds of tips from our Food Network test kitchen chefs, so kids can easily get a handle on cooking basics in no time.
Ever wonder where the first-ever ice cream sandwich originated? Or how many cups of milk are needed to make one pound of cheese? Fun, thought-provoking facts like these are scattered around The Big, Fun Kids Cookbook.
Must-See Fake-Out Cakes
Looks can be deceiving, especially when it comes to larger than life imposter cakes like the one pictured above. Food Network Magazine devoted an entire section of the cookbook to these "fake-out" creations, along with a full page of step-by-step photography to help young chefs make each one. We’re big fans of the Steak and Fries cake, which is made with frozen pound cake and ice cream.
Fun Food Games and Quizzes
Think you know everything there is to know about produce? How about hot dogs? Or ice cream? Food Network Magazine also stocked this cookbook with dozens of multiple-choice quizzes and other games, so you can test your kid’s food IQ. We’ll be honest — we were stumped by quite a few questions on the “Lunch-Box Close-Up” quiz.
Coloring Book Pages
Last but not least, the back of this incredible cookbook comes with six intricately designed coloring pages for kids to enjoy. Not only are the illustrations fun to fill in, coloring them is a great way for kids to pass the time as they wait for their Snack-Attack Chocolate Chip Cookies to come out of the oven or their Ice Cream Wafflewich to chill in the freezer.
