Gr 8 Up–A well-designed, visually appealing instructional cookbook from America’s Test Kitchen for teens, geared toward beginner and experienced cooks. The 70+ included recipes are grouped together by meal type and range in difficulty. In addition to ingredients and cooking steps, each easy-to-follow recipe layout contains useful content like a “Before You Begin” tip, specific skill “how to”’ information, and dish variations. All recipes contain a finished dish photograph, with those requiring assembly or shaping (Shakshuka, for example) possessing additional step-by-step photo instructions. Overall, this diverse set of recipes representing most regions of the world will appeal to varied palates and skill levels as teens work their way from basics like Kheer and Hearty Avocado Toast to the trickier Onigiri and Whoopie Pies. Interspersed photos depict teens of different ethnic backgrounds, adding to the overall accessibility of this cookbook. The only special dietary indicator included is vegetarian.
VERDICT Recommended for all libraries.
