It’s the end of the first week of school holidays so if you’re looking for a little inspiration to keep the kids busy, look no further. The Kids' Turn to Cook is not a book about ‘kids' food’, it’s a recipe book of food that children like to eat and ‘real’ food that appeals to all ages.

Author Margaret Brooker joined Carly to talk about the recipes that she wrote for New Zealanders of all ages and won her a Le Cordon Blei World Food Media Award for Best Children’s Cookbook!
