Our mission is to introduce kids to the magic of cooking with the help of the grown-ups and our two volumes – one for the parents and one for the kids. All the recipes are easy and quick to make so that your little sous-chef won’t get bored or discouraged.
We believe that cooking can be a fun activity and a happy bonding experience for the whole family, that’s why the books focus on the teamwork between parents and kids.
Learning the basics of cooking is also the starting point for developing healthy eating habits and a taste for wholesome meals. We hope our books will inspire you to have fun preparing delicious meals with your little sous-chef.
