"A comprehensive cookbook designed for and tested by teen cooks.
According to the introduction, not only did thousands of teens test these recipes in their own home kitchens, but each recipe was only included in the book if at least 80% of the testers considered it a keeper... The layout is crisp and clear, starting with ingredients and their prep, with required equipment highlighted for easy visibility. Special techniques, such as how to stem kale, are given in boxed sidebars, sometimes with photographs, and possible ingredient substitutions are both recommended and (where necessary) warned against. The front of the book offers tips on how to get started, covers elements of kitchen safety, and illustrates common techniques and equipment. The recipes themselves are tagged beginner, intermediate, advanced, and vegetarian (but not vegan). Each dish starts from basic, whole ingredients—no canned soup here—and the text often gives suggestions for how cooks can personalize or expand on it. Bright photographs show racially diverse young people and showcase the mouthwatering array of dishes.
Top-notch recipes for junior top chefs. (photo credits, conversions and equivalents, nutritional information, index) (Nonfiction. 12-18)" -- Kirkus

The Book

"Whether a teen is looking to make Tik Tok-worthy sticky buns or simple egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches before school, The Complete Cookbook for Teen Chefs has something for everyone.  With recipes ranging from Biang Biang Mian (Hand-Pulled Noodles) to Steak Tacos with charred Corn Salsa, Arepas to Congee, French Fries and Cheeseburger Sliders to Apple-Cider Donuts, this book features helpful sidebars to ensure that teens can learn more about why a recipe works, and how to take their recipes to the next level." 

This stellar kid's cookbook is from the editors of the New York Times bestselling series:  The Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs and the Complete Baking Book for Young Chefs.  Thousands of teens tested these recipes in their own home kitchen, but each recipe was only accepted if at least 80% of the testers considered it a keeper.  

The layout makes it easy to engage: what ingredients are needed, how to prep and the actual cooking of the chosen recipe. The best part of all are the photos of exuberant teens enjoying and sharing the fruits of their labour.  YUM!   The introduction of the book discusses safety tips and illustrates common techniques and equipment needed.  The recipes are labelled beginner, intermediate, advanced, and vegetarian ( but not vegan ).  Every aspect is covered in this fantastic book to assure cooking success and bragging rights!

This book is a delightful start to encourage a personal collection of cookbooks or to give as a gift. It shouts quality from beginning to end.  I highly, highly recommend this book. Enjoy and "Bon AppΓ©tit!"
