◆ We used to learn to cook by peering over our mother’s shoulder as she chopped and sauteed onions, browned meat, added her favourite seasonings, and fried, simmered, or roasted her way to a delicious family meal. We marvelled at her impressive “special occasion” cakes and puddings, and vowed to make them just as well when we grew up.

◆ These days, this time-honoured way of learning how to feed ourselves good food is disappearing. Many of our mothers were not taught to cook themselves, so could not pass on their knowledge to us. This app will bridge that gap. The step-by-step images will lead you through every aspect of making a meal, from something as basic as how to chop an onion, to showing you when a custard is thick enough, to what a caramel should look like in the saucepan.

◆ In this app, you’ll find more delicious recipes, from time-honoured classics such as roast beef and Yorkshire pudding or lemon meringue pie, to the mouthwatering modern treats of sushi, crisp salmon with coriander pesto, or homemade pasta. Before you know it you’ll be producing baguettes to beat any you can buy, or turning out irresistible chocolate-orange truffle cake.

◆ There is something for everyone in this book, whether you prefer not to eat meat, have only minutes each day to cook, love to entertain with flair, or simply need to feed a growing family. Many of the recipes suggest simple ways to vary a dish, serving as starting points for your own imagination as your cooking confidence grows.

◆ You’ll find a recipe for every occasion here, too. A summer party will be a huge hit when you serve a whole poached salmon with watercress sauce, while friends will clamour for an invite to supper when they know you’ll serve an exotic and delicious Moroccan chicken tagine followed by a cinnamon-orange.

Cooking with Kids, Inc.

Cooking with Kids, Inc.

Cooking with Kids, Inc.

Since 1995, Santa Fe’s Cooking with Kids has educated and empowered thousands of school children to make healthy food choices through hands-on learning with fresh, affordable foods from diverse cultures. Kids who help plan, prepare, and cook meals are much more likely to enjoy a broad array of foods, many more than adults often imagine. With this app, the beloved New Mexico nonprofit organization shares its most enthusiastically kid-endorsed dishes. Included too are Cooking with Kids’ time-tested tips and videos for engaging children in the kitchen.

Cooking with Kids is recognized nationally as an innovative leader in hands-on food and nutrition education. Chef Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution chose Cooking with Kids green and white fettuccine with tomato-basil sauce and accompanying salad as one of the country’s best school lunches. A Southwestern lentil salad created by a 5th grade CWK class was selected as a winner in First Lady Michelle Obama’s Recipes for Healthy Kids competition. The International Association of Culinary Professionals named CWK as its exemplary culinary non-profit organization of 2013. Additionally, the organization has been honored with a national Innovation in Prevention Award by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for its efforts in promoting healthy lifestyles.

The world becomes a little smaller, and a little more unified, when kids immediately make the connection between the tortillas common to Santa Fe cooking and the chapatis of India or injera breads of Ethiopia. Watch with delight as children cooperate in cooking together, mastering simple from-scratch recipes together that will entice them away from those ubiquitous chicken nuggets and fries, at least for some meals. The teamwork builds their confidence, helps them use school skills such as math and geography, and additionally inspires them with practical skills for taking care of themselves and others, for the rest of their lives.

Together we are creating a healthy future!
