In her introduction to “Kid Chef Bakes, The Kids Cookbook For Aspiring Bakers“, author Lisa Huff explains the goal of this book. With it, she hopes you will be able to learn more about the Kitchen Tools and Appliances you will need for baking. You will also master baking skills like Measuring, Mixing, and so on, and discover a world of Sweet and Savory Baking Recipes. After that very brief introduction, the book is then divided into two basic parts. Part One is “Welcome To Baking School“ and Part Two is all Recipes. The first section in part one is “In The Baker’s Kitchen“. Here kitchen rules are explained along with details about what is included in a “Baker’s Pantry”, complete with a list of “Seasonal Ingredients”. “Baking Equipment”, such as “Cookware and Bakeware” and “Other Tools and Utensils”, is also described. Another section covers “Knives and Other Sharp Tools”. This includes a description of various “Cutting Styles”, “How To Use A Knife”, and the all-important “Knife Safety”. “Using A Stove” and “Using An Oven” are explained followed by a “Baker’s Dozen Tips”. Chapter 2 covers “Baking Skills”. Starting with “Lesson One“ the basics like measuring liquids and dried ingredients are covered, also butter, when to use and at what temperature, and greasing pans. The lesson ends with a recipe tutorial for “Very Berry Granola Bars“ which uses your newly acquired skills. “Lesson Two“ starts with “Cracking And Separating Eggs”. This is a not to be ignored skill which everyone must master, and covers everything from the temperature of the egg to the best techniques on how to separate eggs. The lesson ends with a recipe tutorial for “Little Meringue Clouds“. “Lesson Three” covers “Mixing And Folding”. It describes the various types of mixing, like beating, creaming, folding, etc. as well as mixing wet and dry ingredients separately. Lesson Four ends with a recipe tutorial for “Cinnamon Buttermilk Muffins”. With “Lesson Four”, you will learn “Creaming Butter And Sugar”. This is an important step for anybody who wants to make cookies. This lesson also includes information on how you can tell if your baked goods are done. The recipe tutorial here is “Vanilla Cupcakes With Chocolate Fudge Frosting”. The How To Frost And Decorate details are covered after the recipe. “Lesson Five” is “Making Dough”. Starting with cutting in the butter, it goes on to include information on rolling dough and tips for baking crusts. It even includes a small section on pie fluting. Not surprisingly the recipe tutorial for Lesson Five is Pie Dough. “Lesson Six” covers “Yeast Dough”. From water temperature, through to kneading, rising and proofing, everything is covered. There is a section explaining what yeast is and how it works and another on storing baked goods. The recipe tutorial includes the first non-dessert recipe “Homemade Pizza Dough“. “Melting Chocolate” is “Lesson Seven”. Starting with how to use a double boiler, it even covers how to make your own double boiler and using bars of chocolate. A small section on microwaving chocolate is included as well. “Brownie Bites” are the recipe tutorial included. That concludes the lessons section and brings us to the recipes section...

This review is written in response to a complimentary hard copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.
