Bake with Josh Might Scoop 12-year-old Josh Thirion His Second International Gourmand Cookbook Award

Bake with JoshBak met JoshJosh Thirion, author of Bake with Josh (also available in Afrikaans as Bak met Josh), at the tender age of 12, might be up for his second Gourmand Cookbook Award.

In an article for the Cape Times, Lisa Isaacs found out about the inspiration for Thirion’s first book Cook With Josh (also available in Afrikaans as Kook met Josh). Lynn Thirion says that her son came up with the idea for the wildly successful book all by himself.

Read the article:

“Together, we would go through recipe books and search for his favourite recipes. We would test them and change them, and they made their way into the cookbook. Josh thought while waiting for the goodies to finish cooking, children can enjoy games and activities like the connect the dots, crosswords, mazes and colouring in,” she said.

“All the recipes me and my mom make have a twist to them. Lots of these recipes are easy, and kids can do them. With some recipes, adults will need to help them,” Josh said.
