Cooking for Kids with Luis

This beautifully illustrated, full colour book and DVD is a must for all parents of young children.

Meet the youngest television presenter and chef in the world:

I’m Luis and I’m 6.
I go to kindy with my friends,
I like riding my bike,
playing with my toys,
building things,
patting my kitty kitty …
… and cooking!

Luis cooks everything from giant hamburgers and tortillas to his favourite Guatemalan cheesecake, and they all taste really yummy! His food ideas come from all over the world and there’s something for every mouth-watering moment of the day.

If you get so hungry sometimes you could eat a horse, then Luis is the cook for you. Pick any recipe in the book and just follow his fun steps and helpful tips – it’s that easy!

Inside the back cover is a DVD of 10 episodes from Luis's Cooking for Kids with Luis show, seen on Nickelodeon TV, so you can watch and work with Luis as you cook. And you have the recipes handy by your side.

Cooking For Kids With Luis has won two TV awards: 'Most Outstanding Australian Production - Short Form' and 'Most Outstanding Australian Production – Kids’. It is now a hit in the USA on Noggin TV and is repeated on Nickelodeon TV in Australia during early 2007.

Critics and early childhood experts have raved about the program.
International childhood education consultant, Andrea Meyers has written:

 ‘Watching this young boy who seemed so at ease in the kitchen and in front of the camera was fascinating. He demonstrates how to make Guatemalan Cheesecake, Empanadas, Fruit Kebabs, and Tortilla Frenzy, all the while talking about how food is fun, tasty, and healthy. He emphasizes kitchen safety and an adult helps him with things like turning on the oven. And lately the network has done an excellent job of providing information about education goals for each program on the website as well as before each program airs. So you can check out the [4] education goals for Luis’ program on the website. The list includes goals from Physical Science; Technology; Mathematics; Social Sciences; and Health, Physical Education, and Safety.’

If you have not seen Luis, check out the website to read more about the program.



Luis’ father, Phillip Tanner, the producer of the TV program, Cooking for Kids with Luis has written the book of recipes in the language of Luis. He has also used illustrations from the TV program. The forward is written by Luis and is quoted above.
