"There's a lot o' us cannae cook but wish we could. An' a lot o' us want tae learn but some dishes are awfy tricky, and it can put some people aff. Teach folk tae cook when they're barins, and they'll hae the basics tae mak' it easy tae cook onything!
To help mak' sure my youngest anes—Horace, the Twins, and the Bairn— learn about proper cookin', I've made a book wi' Auntie Catherine Broon. She's a dab hand at the cookin', and us Broons are proud when we see her writin' in the papers, or when she's on the telly talkin' aboot Scottish food.
These recipes are simple anes for makin' real food. They've each got a step-by-step guide tae make' a' the hard bits nice an' clear. We think the maist important thing is no' tae gie up. Makin' a mistake may no' taste sae guid but it's ane o' the best ways tae learn. A' the best cooks mak' Mistakes. Just hae another go!"
Aimed at teaching children basic cooking skills, these 46 recipes are clearly presented in simple illustrated steps. Each recipe begins with helpful boxes titled “You will need” and “Before you start.” The recipes are planned and written by Catherine Brown – experienced food writer, cook, broadcaster, lecturer and grandmother.
