Do you like to cook? Do your kids?

Cooking is a great skill to have. If you can be confident in the kitchen, know how to use a knife safely and to be careful around boiling liquids and hot flames, then you are well on your way to becoming an independent and capable person in the kitchen and in life. This Action Pack: Family cooking, will help cooks of all ages to become confident in the kitchen.

Cooking not only teaches you about healthy eating and good quality food, but also makes you aware of the ingredients that go into your food. Kids will begin to appreciate all the time and effort that goes into cooking a meal for the family too. They might not even complain so much if it’s not their favourite food served up at dinner time. Enable your children to become confident cooks and experimental eaters with these 30 delicious and easy to make recipes.

Cooking is part science, part art and part practical skills. Knowing how food reacts and why you need to include certain ingredients in a certain order and cook them at a certain temperature is all science. Why baking powder and yeast makes flour rise. Why cream turns to butter if you over beat it. Why milk curdles if you add lemon juice to it. Knowing these things will make you and your kids more inventive, creative and scientific cooks — you’ll learn all these things and more in this issue.

Cooking is about being independent, learning about food and ingredients and the effort that goes into cooking, but it can also be a really fun, creative and artistic activity. Experimenting with flavour, colour, texture and shape is part of the cooking process. In this e-cooking book, you’ll find food for inspiring this creativity.

Be prepared for mess, for fun and for some seriously good food.

I want to encourage everyone to give cooking a go. Parents don’t be afraid of a little mess – kids, you’ll have to clean up after cooking if you want to cook next time.!

Cooking with kids takes longer – this is just a fact, which is fine – slow and steady will get you there in the end, just read through the recipe, gather your ingredients and do one step at a time.

None of the recipes in this book are difficult, although some recipes might take a little more experience in the kitchen than others – and a little more time. However they are all achievable and we know this because the chefs who cooked the dishes featured here are 9 and 12 years old – younger children will need more supervision, while older ones will only need a little advice now and again.

So get cooking – what are you waiting for?!
