Ruby’s mother is often busy in her Caribbean restaurant, The Sugar Cane Corner, and Ruby wants to learn to cook so that she can help her. At first Ruby’s attempts are disastrous with scones that taste like old socks, but finally, Ruby’s mother decides to give Ruby weekly lessons in the restaurant.
Ruby’s Recipes cleverly combines storytelling with simple recipes. It can be used in two ways, as a storybook, or as a storybook and starter cookery book. It is divided into four stories, each story containing a basic recipe (scones, jam tarts, Crunchie and ginger cake) with full cooking instructions. The stories, through Ruby’s mistakes, also describe the problems that can occur. And there is an epilogue at the end of the book, which gives ten handy hints to help a young cook. This book has a joyful no nonsense approach to cooking and is a fun and easy way to start learning.
