Cooking with Kids: Quiche Lorraine

A few months ago, at the library my son found a really great series of kid’s cookbooks called Easy Cookbooks for Kids. There are several great cookbooks within the series. Including Easy Lunches from around the World, Easy Desserts from Around the World, and Easy Snacks from Around the World. Since my son discovered this series we have cooked several of the recipes that he has found in the various books in the series. 

As a parent, I really like this series because the recipes are easy enough for kids to prepare with a little help from adults. I also like this series because it exposes kids to foods and recipes that are from other cultures. And that it motivates my son who is a very picky eater to try new foods. Most importantly, I like it that the recipes are delicious. 

My son likes this series of cookbooks for some of the same reasons that I like them. He likes learning about foods that people eat in different cultures. He also likes that the recipes are very kid-friendly. The directions are easy to follow and that most of the steps can be completed by kids (excluding any step using heat from the stove or oven). Plus, there are helpful cooking tips, cooking term definitions, and pictures of cooking tools that he has also found helpful. 

Most recently, we made the Quiche Lorraine recipe that’s found in the book Easy Main Dishes from Around the World cookbook. Thanks to this cookbook my son and I learned that this is a dish from northern France. This recipe was super easy to make. Basically, my son measured and assembled everything. All I had to do was cook the bacon, supervise him, and handle putting the Quiche Lorraine in the oven and taking it out of the oven. 

If you have a kid that likes to cook I would highly recommend cooking this recipe together. It’s very easy to make and it tastes delicious.

    The Quiche Lorraine looks delicious! It is great that your son loves to cook, I was young when I began cooking in the kitchen with my grandmother.
