A Recipe Box for Young Chefs

RECIPE BOX AND RECIPES  by Gabriela DelworthSpending time in the kitchen with my mother was such a joy. I was actually cooking along with her since I was six years old. She taught me so many things! I believe that we should learn how to cook at a very young age. It is fun to learn about the food we enjoy. It’s a chance to learn how to follow directions, how to measure and to understand how things in the kitchen really work.

Recently a dear neighbor invited us to her daughter’s 10th birthday party. She mentioned that this special girl would be collaborating with her in some of the cooking for the event. What type
of gift could I give to this girl? A recipe box!

While thinking about the idea of a recipe box for this girl I realized that today we do more reading using devices than we read printed materials. I thought it would be a great gift for her to start her own hand written recipe collection. Kids are not writing by hand much anymore…

This is how the Recipe Box for Young Chefs came to be such a special gift.

I started with an unfinished wood piece found at a craft store. A perfect box to decorate and fill with recipe cards.
