A few words about My Little Sous-Chef

My Little Sous-Chef is a tandem cookbook for kids and parents to use together. My Little Sous-Chef’s mission is to introduce kids to the magic of cooking with the help of the grown-ups. My Little Sous-Chef is the first cookbook to come in two separate volumes, one for the parents and one for the kids. In the adult version you will find a wide range of sweet and savoury recipes to try out with your little helper. All the recipes are easy and quick to make, so that your little sous-chef won’t get bored or discouraged. In the twin book for kids you will find the same recipes, but with only the easier, child-friendly tasks, fully illustrated to be easily understood by preschool kids too. For your easy reference, the little sous-chef’s tasks are listed at the bottom of each recipe in the adults’ book. 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. We hope they will inspire you and that you will have fun preparing delicious meals with your little sous-chef.

A few words about Us


We are Laura, Francesca and Caterina, three Italian girls based in London, and faces behind My Little Sous-Chef.

The idea for My Little Sous-Chef came to our mind on a summer evening, while discussing various things, including food, our childhood and our Italian heritage. We all had, when little, cooked with our mums, dads or grandmas and been given a kids’ cookbook as a present but we realised that we had never seen a children’s cookbook that focused on the interaction between adults and kids in the kitchen. So we decided to do it ourselves!

Read a little bit more about us:
