"The perfect first recipe book for kids."
5 stars"

The Edmonds cookbook is a classic. My grandparents used the original deluxe 1955 edition, my parents used the revised 1980 edition and I use the 1998 version I was given when I went flatting. Now my 6yo daughter uses the Beginners version. These are straight forward recipes that are presented in an easy child-friendly format. Perfect for new immigrants or children. A great intro before they step up to the real Edmonds Cookbook.
