What's cooking? Find out in this cool cookbook - written by a teenager, for teenagers! A kid's gotta eat - and what better way to make sure that the food on your plate hits the spot than to make it yourself? Fifteen-year-old Sam Stern, with a bit of help from his mum, Susan, is more than happy to share dozens of his favourite recipes for all occasions. There are pancakes for breakfast and easy lunches like soup or salad to pack up for school. Quick meals like spaghetti or omelettes are best for busy school nights; for weekends there are serious dinners like homemade lasagne or whole roasted chicken. And don't forget fancy, mouth-watering desserts; addictive but healthy snacks; and even special menus and suggestions to help keep your brain boosted during dreaded exam time. Especially geared toward teen readers, "Cooking Up A Storm" is bursting with over 120 healthy, tasty and simple recipes and food ideas and features a lively commentary from Sam, along with colourful photos of food preparation and the ultimate chef's reward: feasting with friends.

Sam Stern is 14 years old, and with a little help from his mum, Susan, he has written this cookbook for kids, like himself, who enjoy cooking or are keen to learn. Sam is the youngest of five and is currently doing his GCSEs.From Booklist:
Gr. 6-9. In a year when two young chefs, ages 8 and 10, were nominated for the James Beard Award, it's clear that kids are increasingly comfortable in the kitchen. English teen Sam Stern, with his mother's help, offers this slender, photo-packed cookbook, unusual not only because of its author but also because it focuses on guys, with chapters such as "Impress the Girls." That said, the recipes, presented in a casual but clear voice, will draw both genders. An opening section presents some insight into cooking's appeal for teens: "It's brilliant to know that you can be independent," Sam says of the ability to cook what he wants, when he wants it. Suggestions for breakfast, dinner, and snacks are included, as are dishes for parties and for boosting brainpower during exams. Although the recipes aren't technically difficult, kids without any kitchen experience will need lots of help. Still, the bright, energetic text and color photos of Sam and his photogenic friends and family will easily pull in aspiring foodies. Gillian Engberg
