Lyla and Emily Allen may not be in high school yet, but they know their way around the kitchen. They've been cooking for years (at home and on The Rachael Ray Show), so they quickly put beginners at ease with friendly advice, confidence-building pep talks, full-color photography, and step-by-step directions. They also introduce kids to the basic tools a young chef needs, telling them how to stay safe in the kitchen and outlining techniques ranging from knife skills to ingredient swaps to how to photograph your food for social media or host a cooking party for friends. In short, there's something for everyone, from beginners to budding pros. With more than 75 recipes to choose from--including entrees, sides, smoothies, snacks, and desserts--kids will have the chance to try dozens of new foods and master a wide range of cooking skills. As a bonus, virtually all of the recipes include vegetarian options and many have gluten-free or dairy-free options as well--so kids of all kinds will be delighted at the range of recipes that they can enjoy!
