Sourcebooks and America's Test Kitchen are teaming up for America's Test Kitchen Kids, a partnership "to create a series of co-branded books designed to educate, inspire creativity, and shape a child's relationship with food and cooking." The titles will foster new ways for children to connect with food, from baby's first foods and STEM-based picture books, to cookbooks that bring the test kitchen experience to kids of all ages.
Jack Bishop, chief creative officer at America's Test Kitchen, and Kelly Barrales-Saylor, editorial director for children's nonfiction at Sourcebooks, will lead the teams working on book development and new product generation. They expect to publish six to 10 titles per year across a range of age groups, beginning in fall 2018.
Dominique Raccah, CEO and publisher of Sourcebooks, said that America's Test Kitchen Kids' "focus on combining the science, math, and creativity of food, paired with our aptitude for producing books that transcend categories, will create the perfect doorway to developing a child's positive relationship with food at every stage, baby to teen."
America's Test Kitchen CEO David Nussbaum said that "by partnering with Sourcebooks to focus on children through America's Test Kitchen Kids, we hope to instruct and inspire the next generation of cooks."
