"The perfect first recipe book for kids."
5 stars"

The Edmonds cookbook is a classic. My grandparents used the original deluxe 1955 edition, my parents used the revised 1980 edition and I use the 1998 version I was given when I went flatting. Now my 6yo daughter uses the Beginners version. These are straight forward recipes that are presented in an easy child-friendly format. Perfect for new immigrants or children. A great intro before they step up to the real Edmonds Cookbook.

The much-loved Edmonds 'junior' cookbooks have now been fully updated with 20 brand-new recipes. All are easy to prepare and, with simple step-by-step instructions, great for learning to cook.

Not only do kids and beginner-cooks want fun foods - they want to have fun making the recipes. Every page in this cookbook contains photographs, illustrations and great colour - all appealing to today's kids and teenagers.

With Edmonds you can feel confident that the recipes will work, that your kids will enjoy themselves, and that your kitchen will stay in one piece! A must for all young aspiring chefs.
