Teens Cook

Item Details

Written by two teens who know what teens do and don_t know about cooking, TEENS COOK is an instructional cookbook that teaches young adults how to make great meals_and be confident and independent in the kitchen. Authors Megan and Jill Carle are teenage sisters with nothing much in common when it comes to food_except that they both know how to cook really well. One buys ingredients she likes and figures out what to make when she gets home; the other follows every recipe to the letter. One is a vegetarian who_s drawn to ethnic food; the other prefers all-American comfort food. Together, they_re a dynamic duo who have created and mastered more than 75 recipes for breakfasts, snacks, sides, family meals, dinners for one, and desserts. In TEENS COOK, the Carle sisters also share their kitchen know-how on averting and fixing disasters, dealing with cookbook math (fractions and metrics_ugh!), deciphering culinary vocabulary (all those terms we kind of know, but not really), explaining chemistry (why and how stuff goes right and wrong in the kitchen), and avoiding accidents (can you say _grease fire_? oops!). For teens (and tweens) who are tired of eating what their parents decide to fix, TEENS COOK offers foolproof advice for whipping up some tasty home-cooked meals of their own.

We have tried several of the recipes and all have worked out great - the sushi rolls, the potato skins and yes, the Roman Apple Cake. Directions are clear, pictures are great, just an all round great book for young (and older :)) cooks alike.
