Starting with a vegetable soup, kids learn how to peel and chop vegetables and to understand boiling and simmering. Then they prepare salads; make a perfect hamburger; handle eggs; cook rice, pasta, and vegetables; make pancakes, biscuits, bread, pizza, cookies, brownies, a fruit crisp, and an apple pie; and put together a complete chicken dinner. And, finally, they create a triumphant birthday cake. Whether you're young or adult, by the time you've finished the last lesson you'll be able to cook just about anything. And you'll have discovered a lot about the joys and mysteries of the kitchen and the pride one feels in making good food to share with family and friends.
