HarperCollins Publishers announced today the acquisition of celebrity chef Duff Goldman’s first-ever cookbook for kids, SUPER GOOD BAKING FOR KIDS, scheduled for publication September 2020. Goldman, a New York Times bestselling author and host of Ace of Cakes, a judge on Holiday Baking Championship and Spring Baking Championship, and a star in Duff Takes the Cake, teaches budding young bakers how to make dozens upon dozens of crazy delicious concoctions that will amaze parents, delight friends, and make the whole family go “mmmmmm.”
Goldman believes baking should be three things: super fun, super delicious, and super creative. SUPER GOOD BAKING FOR KIDS features more than 35 of the gooiest, chewiest, easiest-to-follow recipes ever! With kid-friendly step-by-step instructions; helpful kitchen-safety tips; and fun, fact-filled sidebars on everything from the best places to eat in New York to surprising facts about unicorns, this book will give any kid the kitchen confidence to make crazy delicious desserts that everyone will enjoy.
“I’m constantly inspired and amazed by what kids are able to do in the kitchen, so I’m super excited to be releasing my first cookbook for kids,” says Goldman. “My goal with this book is for kids to have fun creating delicious desserts that the whole family will love and empowering young bakers to release their inner artists in the kitchen!”
“Duff Goldman has the unique ability to make the impossible possible. His cookies, cupcakes, pies, brownies, bear claws . . . they all seem too good for a beginning baker to be able to make. And yet Duff’s found a way to bring his unique style into recipes that will make any kid an all-star chef,” says HarperCollins Children’s Books Executive Editor David Linker. “It’s been a tremendous pleasure working with him and I know that fans of his shows and families looking for fun activities to do together are going to love this.”
Duff Goldman is a pastry chef and artist who premiered on the hit Food Network show Ace of Cakes, which followed the day-to-day life of his bakery Charm City Cakes. He is currently a host of Kids Baking Championship, is a judge on Holiday Baking Championship and Spring Baking Championship, and stars in Duff Takes the Cake.
