Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 6 Up- Written by a British teen cooking personality, this book is full of time-management advice, recipes, and tips for combining dishes. Cross-references enable novices to put together full meals, and the index encourages browsing by ingredient or type of recipe. Tabs enable quick access to the section of the book containing recipes for 5- to 30-minute time frames. A listing of "Essential Extras" at the back provides more adventurous cooks the chance to create basics for themselves rather than purchasing premade items, such as stocks, dressings, assorted spreads, and breads. Each recipe includes serving sizes, variations to adapt the recipes to one's own taste, pictures of the author and friends, and often pictures of the finished product. The directions are easy, although the British colloquialisms might confuse those not familiar with cooking. A teen-friendly guide to healthy eating, featuring foods that are fast and easy to make.-Sara Rofofsky Marcus, Yeshiva Har Torah, Little Neck, NY
