My nine-year old daughter Millie has suddenly developed a passion for cooking. I would like to think that I was the inspiration behind it, but I think it is more than likely sprung from watching the television, particularly Junior Bake-Off and Junior Masterchef on CBBC.
Whatever the source of her inspiration, I support her new passion, even if it does mean, which so far it hasn’t that I have to eat some disastrous meals.
I also have promised to share some of her recipes, starting with her child-friendly version of chilli con carne which is something that any kid can make with a bit of guidance from an adult. It is based on my chilli con carne recipe, but she has taken out most of the heat to make more child friendly.
