The Magic Fridge

Alex MacKay's 'The Magic Fridge' (Bloomsbury) is about to launch, the followup to his 'Everybody Everyday'! Think of it as everyday magic for all of us! Alex is my son, now a wonderful #dad himself, who teaches his children to garden and cook. I wish I'd had his books when I cooked for him & his brothers! #chef #family food #cookingwithkids #wizard #TheMagicFridge @alexmackaycooks, on IG and Twitter

It’s often texture, not taste, which puts kids off dishes, so experiment...invite them to cook with you." http://www.thestarfish.com.au/guest-chef-alex-mackay-a-cooking-bible-for-everybody/

I taught my sons to do their own washing before they started school. But when they visit I'm very happy to do it for them. Alex came on a book tour, where he gave demos to accompany his 'Everybody Everyday' (Bloomsbury). So there were aprons to match the book.
