Do you remember how old you were when you first showed interest in food or cooking? Do you have fond memories of spending time in the kitchen with parents, grandparents and other family members? According to the KidsHealth website, cooking helps kids learn basic math concepts, build language skills, boost confidence, explore their senses, and encourage an adventurous palate. The folks at America’s Test Kitchen are also big fans of getting kids into the kitchen. Molly Birnbaum is editor of America’s Test Kitchen Kids. She talked with our Managing Producer Sally Swift about how to make cooking with little kids fun and delicious. Molly also gave us the kid-friendly recipes for Hand-Squished Tomato Sauce and Rice Noodle Bowls with Pork and Scallions.
