Meet Esme Washburn & Calista Washburn!

ESME and CALISTA WASHBURN are sisters living in New York City. Esme, who is in middle school, is an amateur chef and cooking enthusiast. She has learned everything she knows from her grandmother. Calista, a recent high school graduate and budding photographer, loves helping out in the kitchen and eating the delicious food that Esme cooks.

 

 

 

 

Meet 20 Recipes Kids Should Know!

The perfect book for children, this fun and engaging cookbook is written and photographed by a pair of young sisters for budding chefs.

Whether they're helping stir cake batter or producing their own YouTube cooking channel, kids of all ages are getting
increasingly busy in the kitchen. This cookbook features twenty classic recipes that are fun, healthy, adaptable, and easy to prepare. From banana bread and the perfect grilled cheese to breaded chicken and apple pie, each recipe is written in a clear, accessible style that young cooks of every level will be able to follow. The author is a young chef whose love of cooking developed from her own family's food traditions like baking popovers with her grandmother and Sunday-night pizza making. By teaching kids basic recipes that can be adapted in endless ways, this book is the perfect launching pad to finding their way around the kitchen--or launching their own cooking careers.

We have a lot of tips and tricks for young chefs. Many tricks and tips are directed toward certain techniques, ingredients, recipes, etc. Here are some more general tips for safety and also for you to cook your best and most importantly to have fun in the kitchen!

  1. When you are ready to make a recipe, read the full recipe first to make sure you have all the ingredients. Take out each ingredient and put it in the order you will use it. After you have used it, put it away (that way you won’t forget to include an ingredient or use something twice!). (Cleaning up as you go is very helpful, so that you don’t get confused. The more you clean as you go the less you have to do at the end, and you can enjoy the time while you are cooking more.)
  1. When you are cooking your food, make sure to use a kitchen timer and set it to the shortest time noted in a recipe. Because different stove tops and ovens sometimes cook at different rates, many recipes give a range of cooking times. If your food isn’t done when the smallest time noted is up, you can always keep cooking, but if you overcook something you can’t go back!
  1. Use a different cutting board for different uses. We have separate ones for raw meat, vegetables, onions and garlic, and bread and cheese. If you are cutting on a large board you can use a bench scraper to move the ingredients you are chopping around easier or to move them from the board to a bowl or tray.
  1. When you are cutting something, curl your fingertips in and hold the food with your knuckles down so that you don’t cut your fingers. If you are trying to cut a hard, round vegetable or fruit like an onion, melon, or round squash, cut off the ends or just one side so that it is more stable on the cutting board and easier to cut. Never cut when your fingers or someone else’s are on the cutting board!
  1. When you are making muffins or cupcakes or popovers or anything that needs a muffin tin, don’t fill one of the corner holes/cups so that the pan is easier to handle and always use oven mitts! (We use silicone mitts, which are heat-resistant up to 500 degrees.)
