6/10 Anna (6) “I quite like the crunchy pastry but I am not keen on it with fish.”
8/10 Jacob (8) “Very hot when it comes out, it fills you up. It’s fishy but when you have it
with the tartare sauce it’s like KABOOM in your mouth.”
8/10 Mom "Fun to make and pretty successful. Nice change from breadcrumbs. Dipping in
the tartare sauce makes it much more interesting."
8/10 Dad "Great sauce, good crunch."

What a great idea, I agree that it's a nice change from breadcrumbs. Did it flake everywhere when eating it though?

Actually not as much as you would think. It crunched a bit and a few flakes fell off, but it was less crispy than I imagined it would be. The outer layers were crispy and then the inner layers had that slight chew you get from pastry. So it was a nice mixture of textures, but not too much mess!

Easy Berry Ice Cream This ingenious family recipe comes from Annabel Karmel's "You Can Cook" recipe book.

Taj Triangles - Oven Baked Vegetable Samosas This family recipe test is taken from The Minichefs Cookbook by Claire McAvoy, which is a brilliant cookbook with lots of savoury recipes as well as sweet, and some great twists on everyday food. This recipe Taj Triangles is a samosa using frozen mixed veg, filo pastry and oven baking for an easy and healthy alternative to the very spicy and greasy samosas you often end up with in shops. ...
Sweet and Sour Pork This recipe is taken from Annabel Karmel's "You Can Cook" cookbook. It's fairly representative of the main course meals in the book, in so far as it includes a significant amount of difficult chopping and hot hob work which are not suitable for a lot of young children, but also is a child friendly version of a more adult classic. We have made this before in the chicken version from another of her books, and we were perplexed to find that the amount ...
Cooking With Kids by Erin & Tatum Quon This is so far one of my favourite kids-doing-the-cooking cookbooks. It's a nice hard back book, beautifully laid out, heavy on colour and the photographs make you properly hungry. But two things stand out for me: 1. It doesn't try to suggest that very young children can do every job in every recipe, but says that "each recipe feature...
