The app, developed in association with Tesco, is entirely focused on cooking with kids NOT for kids. So whether it’s a wintery main meal or baking Christmas biscuits, the whole family can get involved.

Over 100 exclusive recipes, ranging from fun tea-time dinners such as ‘bubble and squeak risotto’, ‘Naanza (Indian pizza)’ or ‘Snowed under salmon’ to special treats like ‘gingerbread safari biscuits’, ‘snow blondies’, ‘turkey and stuffing sausage rolls’ and ‘mini mincemeat puffs’ to tasty desserts like our ‘glittering meringue forest’ or ‘Christmas pudding ice cream’.

The Cooking with Kids Christmas app, which follows the success of the Great British Chefs Recipes, Feastive, Summertime and Cooking with Kids apps, features recipes from some of the most dynamic chefs in the country and which have been devised to encourage kids to get more involved in the preparation/cooking of the dishes.

The app also includes a series of How To videos, specifically created to help children learn some of the basics as well as some of the more complicated techniques involved.

21 chefs have contributed recipes in the Cooking with Kids app: Adam Byatt, Adam Gray, Alfred Prasad, Alyn Williams, Andrew Mackenzie, Andy McLeish, Andy Waters, Colin McGurran, Dominic Chapman, Frances Atkins, Galton Blackiston, Geoffrey Smeddle, Graham Campbell, Lisa Allen, Luke Tipping, Marcello Tully, Marcus Wareing, Paul Ainsworth, Shaun Rankin, Vivek Singh, William Drabble.
