Perfect gift for your little chef
When I was young, I was threatened with the wooden spoon so often that the object itself took on powerful and complex associations with guilt, shame and sadness.
Imagine my bewilderment if the Rachel Allen Children's Baking Set (complete with child-sized wooden spoon) had been presented to me as a gift back then? I believe I would have taken to the nearest couch and pondered which Jungian archetype my mother was trying to impose on me.
Luckily, children nowadays are not nearly so sophisticated. Present-day child sees the adorable stripy apron and matching chef's hat and says "hand me that miniature rolling pin, mother, I'm going to start a food blog".
Invest in this adorable set which includes striped chef outfit, animal-shaped cookie cutters, baking tray, rolling pin, whisk and an easy-to-follow recipe book.
A charming introduction to baking for creative kids and a fast track to even better breakfasts in bed for the mums and dads.
Available in Brown Thomas for €25.
