Cameron want to learn how to cook. The catch is he wants Jamie to teach him. Jamie is a really good cook so that'll work fine. Yesterday they had a "class" and made plain bread and cinnamon rolls (using the bread dough). Does anyone have any links to what to teach a kid about cooking?

My kids love to help cook! I never do any actual lessons, just let them do whatever I feel they are capable of and talk about different things as we do them. I have several cookbooks for kids. The most recent (and best so far) is Rachael Ray's Cooking Rocks! for Kids. Jack got it for his birthday. It has alot of helpful hints & information directed to the kids. Jack loves it!

Awesome, Jo! Perfect! The big kids both help me cook, nothing formal, but Cameron specifically asked for lessons in cooking from his father. We have Cooking Rocks. Jamie's parents gave it to Ani a couple Christmases ago. It just so happened the store they bought it from was having a book signing for it with Rachael Ray herself so we took the kids and Ani's book is signed and they got to meet Rachael and everything. We have made a lot of things from it. The problem we have right now is so many recipes include "banned" foods (we can't have anything in our house that Fritz is allergic to) so we can't make a lot of them.

Glad to help. I hope there are some good recipes you can use in that lot. I was forgetting the allergies.

No. Sorry! I can check though. As for mine, I am just going to let him plan something, and make it for dinner, following the recipe. (He sucks at following directions, so this should be good for him). He is 13.

What a great topic! Rachael always wants to help in the kitchen, and I'm just never sure what to let her do...especially since I tend to look for recipes with as little prep work as possible. Off to bookmark those links!
