KIRKUS REVIEW

In pictures and captions, an introduction to cooking which will appeal to 8 to 10 year olds (girls especially) who are allergic to the usual cautionary type of first cooking book. There is no attempt to establish any basic principles, but by the end of a wide variety of foods-hot and cold, breakfast, luncheon, picnic, supper and snacks, a great many how to's have been taught. Each item follows a definite procedure:- the food you need; the tools you need; what to do (from heat to preparation of food to procedure, to cooking process, to serving). Only rarely is resort made to mixes, which seems a bit old fashioned these days. Emphasis- fore and aft-is laid on preliminary steps, washing up as you go, and leaving a clean kitchen. Table setting and space for notes wind up the whole. A lot for the money.
