Synopsis: What will entice kids into the kitchen and turn them into budding chefs? Try yummy baked apples, to-die-for brownies, crunchy, munchy stove-popped popcorn with peanuts and chocolateÑall found in this lie-flat, spiral-bound cookbook made just for them. Inside, hungry snackers will find foods they can prepare to fill up that after-school empty belly, sate a postgame appetite, and banish movie-watching cravings. And, most important, all these bite-size mini-meals are fun to make, delicious, and (keep it a secret) healthy. A handy basics section includes details on how to read a recipe and teaches kids everything from creating a work space to presentation. Before long, confident youngsters will smoothly prepare such tasty dishes as guacamole, cheese straws, and baked chicken fingers.
Gr. 6-9. Like Sam and Susan Stern's Cooking up a Storm (see review on p.46), this attractive cookbook aims to turn teens on to the creative and gastronomic rewards of preparing food at home. Of the 50 recipes promising "snack magic," those featuring meat or dairy often suggest vegetarian or vegan alternatives, and the overall lineup balances familiar dishes, such as chicken wings, with those that require specialty ingredients (arame seaweed). Relaxed instructions ("Go ahead and giggle because I said, 'cut the cheese.'") and an emphasis on the social dimension of cookery, with party-type nibbles occupying the bulk of the book, are well suited to the audience. Less so is the juvenile-sounding title, but the abundant, professional-looking photographs, several depicting teens, will help overcome any misleading first impressions. A covered spiral binding allows pages to lie flat for easy reference, and unobtrusive encouragements about seeking adult help with riskier kitchen maneuvers make this appropriate for chefs within a wide range of ages and levels of experience.
