A culinary journey for little chefs inspired by picture books and their characters! Easy recipes, divided sections, imperial and metric measurements, kitchen safety tips, a conversion chart, and a comprehensive cooking glossary complete this cookbook for kids. 

These simple and tasty dishes bring those stories to life on your plate. With step-by-step instructions and colorful illustrations, ‘Once Upon a Plate‘ encourages kids to explore the joy of cooking while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Let the magic of stories and the delicious world of cooking collide in this enchanting cookbook, where every recipe is a chapter waiting to be savored!

Once Upon a Plate Recipes

The cookbook is divided into three categories: main dishes, side dishes, and snack/desserts. A table of contents will help you find just what you’re looking for.

Each recipe, in this oversized book, features a picture of the dish, the children’s book that inspired the recipe, and step by step, easy-to-follow instructions. Sometimes the book character even makes an appearance to cheer you on!

Bonus Sections

Not only is the cookbook filled with yummies, it features learning opportunities for our little chefs.

Kitchen Safety Tips are first and foremost, we don’t want anyone getting hurt while concocting their favorite recipe.

A Conversion Chart helps convert imperial and metric measure. No worries, each recipe features both measurements, it is a world-wide collaboration afterall. The chart outlines other valuable information: how many cups are in a pint, how many tablespoons are in a milliliter, and how many ounces are in a cup? If you ever need to convert Celsius and Fahrenheit, the formula is just a page away.

The Glossary is my favorite learning tool, from A to Z, it has young chefs covered. What exactly is; Dash? Zest? Saute? The comprehensive list covers four pages and is a super bonus feature. Insider information: Dash is also one of the author’s dog!

About the Authors

The collaboration was made possible by the Instagram author chat, #AuthorForce. This group of authors is phenominal. They are the reason I’m a published author and I will always be grateful for each of them. From around the world, they encourage one another when things aren’t working out, when a troll shares a single star (with no review), and support each other. Always. They are a force, an #AuthorForce!
