Michelin Star Chefs Teach Kids How to Cook in New Recipe Book

Recipes from all over the world encourage children to embrace diversity and build new skills.

The success of culinary culture in recent years has shown cooking is no longer just for adults. Inspired by this notion, journalist Luca Scarcella released a children’s recipe book, Childfood – Recipes for Young Coolinary Explorers.

Available exclusively on the Kickstarter platform, the book offers a unique experience for children to share memorable moments in the kitchen with their families. The project was conceived in collaboration with Charity: Water and Share The Meal del World Food Program. Every five sales of the book guarantee access to drinking water for a child in need.

“I believe that a book that offers recipes of food from all over the world can help to embrace diversity, create strong bonds, build bridges and break down walls, against racism, ignorance and intolerance,” says Scarcella. “I would like to give the children the opportunity to create memories and experiences to share with their parents. I never had this opportunity with mine, so it is something that touches me deeply.

Childfood brings together 23 of the world’s best chefs, now known as the “Coolinary Explorers.” Each recipe is based on an adventure in the history of cooking.

Some of the “Coolinary Explorers” include:
