Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up–This British import is organized into eight chapters, each featuring a different main ingredient chosen by teenage Sam's mates. Potatoes, pasta, vegetables, and chocolate are some of the items represented. There is a commendable emphasis on local food and fresh ingredients, although nutrition information is not included. Each recipe is accompanied by a photo of the dish, and throughout the book there are also many photos of the teens cooking, eating, or just hanging out. Some of the recipes will have wide appeal; others are more exotic, like Cool Cauli Curry. Unfortunately, some of the recipes are vague. For example, the main ingredient for Steak Jalapeño Pockets is listed as 4 rump or sirloin steaks, with no weight given. Does Stern really mean lemon rind instead of lemon zest in the Carrot Pasta recipe? Eggplant Roll-ups in Tomato Sauce advises readers to break eggs into a dish but doesn't tell them to stir them before dipping the eggplant slices. Experienced cooks can probably read between the lines in cases like these, but that shouldn't be necessary. Those looking for a cookbook by teens, for teens, might want to try Megan, Jill, and Judi Carle's Teens Cook: How to Make What You Want to Eat (Ten Speed, 2004).–Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

If you want your kids to learn to cook real food, get this book. My son was initially drawn to the book by the color photographs and is now fascinated that a teenager in another country published this cookbook. We are onto our 4th or 5th recipe. It helps very much that the book is illustrated with lots and lots of color photographs, not just of the dishes, but of the young author and his friends breaking bread together. My average child is not going for any books in my average cookbook collection. Thanks, Sam Sterns, for finding a way to get through to my kids. By the way, the recipes are great and appealing to grown ups like me too.
