10 Baking Books for the Young Cook (And the Young at Heart)
Posted in New
We have made pizza, funfetti biscotti, naan, cocoa brownies, lemon shortbread, chocolate doughnuts, red velvet cake, and so much more. As families look toward an uncertain fall and winter, a list of beloved baking cookbooks might come in handy. The book is written for young bakers, with copious safety instructions, including when to ask an adult caregiver for help. The Complete Baking Book for Young Chefs has more non-Western-ish recipes than many other cookbooks for children (flatbread with za’atar, empanadas, pão de queijo), and it gets good use in our kitchen. Greenspan's chocolate chocolate chip World Peace Cookies, which we perfume with cardamom and garnish with fleur de sel, are a house favorite.
