Kosher by Design: Kids in the Kitchen is a phenomenal kosher cookbook designed specifically with kids in mind - both as the cook and the consumer of the end product. Written by Susie Fishbein, author of the Kosher by Design series and amply illustrated with amazing pictures, by John Uher, of all the dishes contained in this cookbook.

This cookbook contains 80 'kid-friendly' recipes that can be readily prepared by kids of all ages, however the younger the chef, the more adult help they might need. This cookbook features larger than normal print, making the book easier for younger readers to read, as well as colorful graphics. All the recipes include easy to follow, step-by-step directions that walk you through the preparation of each recipe. The recipes use easy to find ingredients, and each recipe includes a handy list of needed equipment as well as an ingredient list.

Kosher by Design: Kids in the Kitchen is the first kosher cookbook that I've seen that was designed specifically with kids in mind, and while designed for kids, even adults will soon find themselves adding these recipes to their own repertoire. Best of all, these recipes are also an ideal teaching tool that can be used not only to teach your kids to cook, but also to help them with their math skills. Making these recipes will encourage your kids to take an interest in meal planning and preparation.

This is an ideal first cookbook for kids, and a great book for novice chefs of all ages. In addition to the recipes, Fishbein offers tips on keeping kosher and kitchen safety. The recipes in this collection include appetizers, soups, salads, breakfast dishes, snacks, meat dishes, dairy dishes, side dishes, drinks, and desserts. I wholeheartedly recommend this cookbook. The only drawback to this book is the difficulty that you and your kids will have in deciding which recipes to try first!

Here's a sampling of some of the recipes that you'll find in this delightful cookbook:
