PRODUCT: Usborne - Cookbook for Boys (www.usborne.com)Usborne Cookbook for Boys

DESCRIPTION: An Usborne Books 64-page spiral-bound hardback cookbook aimed at young boys, with over 40 sweet and savory cooking recipes. Written by Catherine Atkinson, designed and illustrated by Erica Harrison.

GOOD POINTS: The Usborne Cookbook for Boys is one in a large range of cookbooks by Usborne, and is a superb and wonderfully fun recipe book aimed specifically at encouraging boys how to cook.

The cookbook is packed full of recipes which both beginners and more experienced chefs can follow, and includes some very useful information at the beginning of the book about 'getting started', which among other things covers hygiene, useful cooking utensils, preparation of basic ingredients, and kitchen safety tips.

The contents of the book are divided into three sections of recipes - easy bites, main meals and sweet treats - which cover a huge range of healthy balanced meat, fish and vegetable based meals, with a few naughty but nice treats thrown in too! The book has a hardback cover and thick card pages which are easy to turn over, and a handy concealed spiral binding enables it to lie flat on the counter top once your child has chosen their recipe.

Each page of the cookbook is full of bright coloured content, with plenty of food pictures and illustrations to draw and hold interest. The recipes are written in a simple step-by-step way that children can easily follow, and there are useful hints, tips and suggestions throughout to help them perfect and vary their dishes.

The book is mainly geared towards slightly older boys who can read on their own, and a useful index at the back allows them to easily look up their favourite recipes. However younger children can still join in cooking these dishes too, even if simply watching or following others (with the appropriate level of guidance!).

In our opinion, this is a reasonably priced, well-written and educational cookbook, which makes an ideal gift and is a definate must-have in any household consisting of young (or old) boys!

BAD POINTS: None that we can find!

PRICE: £9.99
