Every parent has the responsibility to teach their children skills, including cooking. Kids often love learning to cook, and it improves relationships. One of the most fun cookbooks out there is Cooking with the Crunch Bros: Casual and Fun Korean- and Japanese-Inspired Recipes from Our Kitchen to Yours by Jeff and Jordan Kim who are a father/son duo popular on social media. The unique thing about this excellent cookbook is that the recipes are Korean and Japanese, and they are mouthwatering. While most children’s cookbooks include easy American basics, this one includes easy recipes from a different world. The prose in the cookbook is fun to read, and there are explanations and comments at the beginning of each recipe that are helpful. The recipes are mostly simple and quick, so kids won’t get bored making them. However, these recipes are a good primer for adults who may want to hone their Asian cooking skills. The recipes are very appealing, with the fun aspect of involving the whole family in the preparation.
The recipes are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed on one side of each page and the step-by-step instructions on the other.
While there are many professional, beautiful photographs, all of the recipes aren’t pictured, which is a slight drawback. However, that’s not a reason to avoid this cookbook. Most readers will welcome the yummy recipes whether pictured or not, and want to make lots of them.
All told, this is an excellent cookbook and makes a great addition to every household cookbook collection.
