Cooking With Sophie the “Young Chef”

June 18, 2013

Sophie decided recently she really wanted a smoothie. Never missing an opportunity to get fruit into this kid, I didn’t hesitate to take her up on this opportunity. She also really wanted to make the smoothie herself. I thought this would be a great chance to try a recipe from a new cookbook, Young Chefs: Cooking Skills and Recipes for Kids by Christina Dymock. Lo and behold, we found the perfect recipe for … Pink Smoothies!

Sophie couldn’t wait to get started. She gathered all of her supplies.

(Don’t you love the special cameo from Romeo in the background?)


She measured out her ingredients.



And then started blending!


And voila … Pink Smoothie!




Young Chefs is a great cookbook for teaching kids how to cook. It is full of easy recipes, colorful pictures and easy-to-follow pages. Christina has lots of fun facts and tips throughout the book. I highly recommend it as a starting place if you want to start cooking with your little ones in the kitchen.

Sophie had so much fun making the smoothie that she insisted on me taking a video of her recreating the experience. (There’s Romeo again!)

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of Young Chefs to review for this blog post.  All opinions are my own and I only endorse books that I am proud to recommend to others.

    That’s great that she is developing an excitement for cooking so young! I think I probably need that cook book just to learn cooking for myself 🙂

    Sweet! Love the video. Sophie is wonderful and much better than some of the famous cook celebrities. I bet that smoothie was might tasty. 🙂
