Chef Gino’s Taste Test Challenge: 100+ Winning Recipes That Any Kid Can Cook ~ Kids Cookbook Review
I love having my boys cooking in the kitchen with me. So we are always looking for cookbooks that they can read and use. That’s why I was super excited to find Chef Gino’s Taste Test Challenge: 100+ Winning Recipes That Any Kid Can Cook. This is a book that they absolutely loved. I think we have made at least 15 recipes from this book already.
This book is so much more than just a book with recipes in it. It teaches the basics, perfect for young beginner chefs. I also really like that it doesn’t just have pictures of the finished recipe, it has pictures of the ingredients too. It’s illustrations are perfect for kids! We absolutely love it!
