Cool Main Dish Recipes – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

It’s all protein in these vocabulary-rich cookbooks—vegetarians need not apply! Recipe instructions are detailed enough for novice chefs, providing good descriptive text in each step and photographs of key moments in the process. Kids will gain practice with basic techniques, such as frying, baking, and sautéing, and can experiment with casseroles, braising, and roasting. Wild Game notably covers nongrocery meat, and Fish contains especially useful tips for selecting out fresh fish, freezing fish, and removing bones. Veteran kids’ cookbook author Kuskowski packs these dishes with an amount of flavor that is unusual for this age range; ingredients like cumin, ginger, black pepper, hot pepper flakes, cayenne, Old Bay spice mix, and curry paste will appeal to the appetites of families for whom the bottle of hot sauce is never far from reach. Gender neutral cooking instruction for meat eaters with an extra punch of flavor.
