Little Kitchen Around the World

Yes, we are all loving the cute little kids in the kitchen on Master Chef Australia. The thrills and spills and the chaos that surrounds little ones and desserts! Has it inspired your little one to pick up an apron and a whisk? Well if it has then l have a little secret to share with you on how to get them pointed in the right direction. Of course you need all the right kitchen equipment but have you seen this fab little cook book for kids which has just recently hit the market? (Great timing too l might add!)

I present to you “Little Kitchen around the World”- delicious international recipes that kids can actually make at home.

With dishes such as Almond Crescent Biscuits from Greece to Potato Gems from Japan your little Master Chef will have you dining out in the four corners of the world with just one meal.

This inspiring book has been written by the lovely Sabrina Parrini and published by the folk over at Hardie Grant; it has beautiful photography throughout making it easy for the kids to visualize what their prize dish may look like. The recipes also let parents know if they are easy, medium or tricky and, depending on your patience and time, it will allow the kids to explore all the fun aspects of cooking.

It’s a pretty special little cook book to have around and Mr 3 has just recently decided he likes to help out in the kitchen too. We are just starting to explore the world of Italy with Mum’s Lemon Biscotti (Page 79!)The more involved the kids become with food and cooking the more likely they are to eat the healthy stuff. Maybe your little one can take you to Morocco tonight with Preserved Lemon Roast Chicken?

Want to get your hands on a copy?

Share with us the fun dishes your little ones like to cook up in the kitchen with Mum or Dad.



  1. Oh my mum would make those almond crescent biscuits; yes I have a Greek mama. They are delicious.

    My kids love to help me make apple cinnamon muffins and Anzac biscuits. And these are their lunch box treats.

    Love & stuff

  2. That all sounds delish. Hope your well and might run into you soon at the next event. x

  3. Miss 2.5 loves baking! Apple teacakes, scones and strawberry white choc muffins are her current specialties. She loves to help out by 'scooping' flour, sugar, coconut etc into the measuring cups and tipping choc chips and diced fruit into the bowl, but her favourite thing to do is definitely lick the bowl and spoons!

  4. My little man is still a bit young to help cook, but at the moment he loves whisking an empty bowl as I make him pike lets.

  5. Hi there, I have 5 children, so I bake EVERYDAY!!!!! My three small children love to make their own creations with a fantastic and delicious 'pretzel dough' recipe. They help measure, mix, and then I divide the mixture, they each have a tray and are free to create whatever they like!!! This may range from cars, people, animals, etc. When they are baked, they can brush melted butter over the top, and dip them into a cinnamon/sugar mix and eat while warm. Fun, delicious and something they enjoy every time!!
