The Chop Sizzle Wow Cookbook was released in October this year. I received a copy of this highly pictoral cookbook, which has 50 quick and easy Italian recipes from The Silver Spoon.
Each recipe is illustrated step by step, in hand drawn style, which will appeal to young cooks as well as those of us who are winding our way up the table of 1 – 100.
The chapters are broken down into:
We like the pasta dishes the best, as my kids would live on pasta, day in, day out. I make so many soups, that the change was quite nice for them. We’re planning the Raspberry Semifreddo as one to try over the Christmas holidays.
Some of the recipes are a little involved, so may well need some adult help, and plenty supervision with the heat aspect, but it is fun to attempt. Any reason to get kids active in the kitchen is a good one.
The illustrations by Brazilian illustrator and artist Adriano Rampazzo – a recent graduate of London’s Central St Martin’s art college. I do think this would make a fabulous Christmas present.
