From the creators of the #1 New York Times Bestseller The Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs, this collection of approachable and fun recipes is designed to introduce kids ages 5 to 8 to the kitchen, along with their grown-ups. It's not about getting dinner on the table, but about doing fun cooking projects together.
My First Cookbook will inspire the youngest chefs to enter the kitchen, empower them to cook, and engage their creativity--plus they'll have fun doing it. From simple after-school snacks like Yogurt and Berry Swirls and English Muffin Pizzas, to family meals like Cheese Pupusas and Rice Noodle Bowls, to holiday celebration recipes like Thanksgiving Biscuits and Chinese New Year Pork Dumplings, each beginner recipe is developed by the experts at America's Test Kitchen Kids before being kid-tested and kid-approved.

"It's been said that good cooking is an art form. The truth is, it's much more than that. It's a way to teach vital 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, creativity and collaboration. It invites kids to make connections to the broader world by asking, 'Where does our food come from?' and 'What is the history of this recipe?' And it allows them to apply what they are learning in school in a new context... Of course, the best part of cooking with kids isn't the STEM skills or even the life lessons. Cheesy as this might sound, it's the memories you make together in the kitchen." -- Molly Birnbaum, Editor in Chief of America's Test Kitchen Kids, Time Magazine (December 2019)
