Nine-year-old Josh Thirion Inspires Kids to Cook with Cook with Josh

Cook With JoshKook met JoshCook with Josh is the brainchild of nine-year-old Josh Thirion. An enthusiastic cook with a passion for drawing, Josh compiled this unique cookbook of 48 recipes in the hopes of inspiring other kids to don their chefs’ hats and get into the kitchen.

Not only does Cook with Josh contain easy step-by-step recipes that all kids love to make, it also features lots of activities to keep the whole family entertained. Using his talent for drawing, Josh has created activities such as colouring-in, mazes, word games, crossword puzzles, spot-the-difference and connect-the-dots.

Deciding what to cook has never been this easy as Josh offers a comprehensive selection of delicious drinks, breezy breakfasts, luscious lunches, delightful dinners, divine desserts and tasty treats. Illustrated with mouth-watering food photography and Josh’s own hand-drawn cartoons and step-by-step comic strips, Cook with Josh is a sure way to encourage a future generation of master chefs.

“It is exciting to see someone as young as Josh so passionate about cooking and hope that his creativity and entrepreneurial spirit as demonstrated through his cookbook development will inspire other kids to get into the kitchen and have fun cooking.” — Whitney Miller, Masterchef USA season 1 winner

Cook with Josh is also available in Afrikaans as Kook met Josh.
