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 —
