Like to cook? Let Young Chefs give you a hand at it.
Breakfast, lunch, main course, sweet treats and juices…its all there in Vikas Khanna’s cook book. Young Chefs.
There’s just one rule to cooking — cook without the fear of being judged and make as many mistakes as you want…in your kitchen. With this step-by-step cookery book Khanna not only teaches you the nuances of cooking, he also whips up tasty menu options.Method and technique
The book begins with the basics. Learn what goes into cooking right from measuring spoons, kitchen tools, vessels used for different dishes, key symbols used in recipes, kitchen hygiene, weights and measurements to what kind of food is healthy and what we need to eat more of. The following chapters help you understand ways to cook — terminologies and examples to understand the process. Preparing ingredients before you start cooking is necessary and the book tells you the different ways to prep up depending on your recipe. Certain techniques are involved in getting a cake to rise, making pizza dough, whisking egg whites and separating an egg. There’s an entire chapter devoted to help you master them before you start baking.
When you begin to cook ask an adult to be there with you. Surprise your family with not only your skill but the wide variety of dishes you can cook.
The trivia that comes along with each recipe is absorbing. Khanna gives you different choices with the same ingredients, lists out details such as where the ingredients can be sourced, a little history or some anecdotes and visually appealing pictures.
Written in easy to follow language all it takes is a will to try your hand at it.
