Dear kids:

Do you often come home hungry after school? Have you ever wanted to cook your family a meal, but don’t want to slave away for hours and hours? Are you sick and tired of eating the same old shrink-wrapped snacks every day?

Then this is the book for you!

I like cooking and I love eating, but sometimes I just feel like whipping up a fast and tasty treat. I know you’ve got school to go to, homework to do and friends to hang out with.

So I’ve made sure that Half-hour Hungries is full of awesome recipes you can cook in roughly 30 minutes, to leave time for other important things in your life. So grab your apron, pick up your mixing spoon and let’s get cracking!

Dear parents:

I learnt to cook when I was really young. When I was eight years old, I bought my first-ever cookbook, Cool and Creamy: The Ice-cream and Frozen Yoghurt Book, at a school fete. It was love at first sight – I spent months poring over each page. I even went so far as to colour in all of the black-and-white recipe illustrations!

This book still sits on my bookshelf, decades later. I look at it from time to time and good memories come flowing back: memories of after-school cooking adventures and lazy Sundays spent experimenting with different ice cream flavours and toppings.

I remember my mum’s country-style kitchen, with its daggy brown tiles and olive green bench. I remember being impatient waiting for my ice cream to set, and proud when I could finally serve it to my family.

I don’t know if what I cooked was any good, but I remember my mum encouraging me nonetheless. Back then, my kitchen may not have been filled with culinary greatness, but I recall the time I spent cooking there with great fondness. I hope this book will help your child create similar happy memories in the kitchen.

So here’s to our children, their enthusiasm and every culinary masterpiece they create.
