Duff Goldman is known as a celebrity chef and host of the Food Network shows Kids Baking Championship and Duff Takes the Cake. Goldman is a best-selling author as well, and now he's brought his expertise and kid-friendly personality to Super Good Baking for Kids, a cookbook for young people ages 8-12. Bright, fun, and beautifully photographed, Goldman's latest book is the perfect gift for any budding young baker.
We asked this busy chef and TV personality to share four books that he loved this year. As you'll see below, Goldman likes to mix it up when it comes to reading material.
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
Snow Crash is a rip roarin,’ post-apocalyptic yarn that doesn’t feel that far off. Appropriately terrifying.
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
It’s very, very, very important to have the correct amount of silliness in your life. Where the Sidewalk Ends is the wellspring of absurdity. I love it. And the illustrations are great.
BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts by Stella Parks
Exhaustively tested recipes that always work and every time I read this book, I actually learn something new. And the recipes are super fun.
Shogun by James Clavell
Sometimes it’s fun to spend a few days in feudal Japan cuttin’ people’s heads off with samurai swords.
