Let's Cook by Buddy Oliver

Who’s the author? Buddy Oliver, son of bestselling chef Jamie Oliver, has grown up in a food-loving family and been cooking with his parents since he was a toddler, often appearing alongside them in videos. Since 2020 he has fronted his own YouTube channel, Cooking Buddies, which has over 130,000 subscribers.

What’s it about? Buddy’s first cookbook is a user-friendly resource to get kids into cooking. Featuring over 60 exciting recipes that are fun to make, delicious to tuck into and written with beginners in mind, Let’s Cook is a fantastic tool for building kitchen confidence through flavour-packed food the whole family can enjoy.

Let’s Cook will take children (and parents!) on a real adventure through a whole rainbow of tasty dishes and help them build on their cooking skills, thanks to simple recipe methods and enticing photography. Chapters include breakfast and brunch, family favourites, and skills for life, as well as a dedicated pasta chapter, a collection of seasonal favourites, speedy after-school snacks and some much-loved puddings and party treats.

Made with accessible ingredients and peppered with helpful hints and tips from Buddy throughout, these recipes make real, everyday food super-achievable.

Perfect for: Followers of Buddy’s YouTube channel, as well as children and parents who are keen to develop their kitchen skills and learn how to cook.
