"Maw Broon's Cooking with Bairns" is aimed at helping children master basic cookery techniques while learning to cook. The 46 recipes are clearly presented in simple steps each of which is illustrated. Any basic techniques used in the recipes are shown separately in a special section with their own illustrations. Most recipes are laid out on two facing pages for clarity and each recipe has a 'You will need' box and a 'Before you start' box. The recipes used by Maw Broon and the Bairns are planned and written by Catherine Brown - experienced food writer, cook, broadcaster, lecturer and grandmother. She believes it is important to teach children the basic techniques of cookery and to build on these skills. The recipes are organised in six sections following on from a first section entitled 'Basic Techniques' that is dedicated to the basic skills the children will acquire as they work through her recipes.For example, the 'Plate of Broth - Meal in a Plate' section will start with a recipe for Lentil and Bacon Broth and the basic skills of how to peel a carrot, how to slice an onion, and how to chop bacon required for this recipe can all be found with step-by-step illustrated instructions in the first section. It includes: Piece and Jam - and other snacks; Plate of Broth - soups and broths; Dinners - meat, fish, veggies, salad main courses and puddings; High Teas - main course with baking; Baking Session - oven and girdle baking; and a bit of fun - sweeties, drinks, sundaes and baking without heat. It title features: 46 recipes with step-by-step illustrated instructions; recipes and techniques that are clearly explained; notes on ingredients/extra material in a special feature called 'CB's Tips'; recipes prepared by an experienced and leading food writer; and a strong emphasis on 'Don't give up if you fail first time. All the best cooks and chefs fail and it's fun to eat the results! It includes extra material dedicated to The Broons - Scotland's best-loved family who have appeared in "The Sunday Post" since 1936.

“Excellent for the budding cook.”

This book was well received. The recipes are excellent judging by first results, well laid out and easy to follow. Don't be put off by the Scottish origins, the recipes are in English. I would recommend this volume.
