Book Description

3 Oct 2005
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it! 3 Sep 2006
By Purdy
Having seen this book reviewed in the newspapers and on TV I decided that I would buy it for my kids (aged 9 and 14) for the summer holidays. And boy am I glad I did! They have spent the last few weeks trying out loads of recipes from the book, from full-on family meals to cakes, biscuits and smoothies. Not only has it kept them entertained for hours, but they are now confident in the kitchen. And most of the recipes are healthy as well (with the odd nice treat) so it's guilt-free. I heard that Sam Stern is bringing out another book this year - I'll definitely be buying it!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Best Christmas Pressent 8 Jan 2006
I got this book for Christmas, as I have allways liked cooking, but never had anything to cook. This book has loads of great recipes, from cakes and biscuits, to full meals. Some thigs that I have made are:muffins, bbq pork ribs, pasta and sauce and there are lots more that I want to make such as: wedges, breakfast fry up, egg fried rice, greek salads and lots more. I would recommend this book to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Calling all parents!! 18 May 2006
This book is a must have if like me you have a child who likes to cook. The recipes are grown-up enough to satisfy both the cook and the 'guests'. As a parent I'm concerned about nutritiion and the author covers this and makes a good case for organic seasonal choices, where possible. Intelligent well thought out recipes written in an easy to understand language that bridges that awkward gap between the child and young adult.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cookbook that my sons use 2 July 2007
By Jaybird
I bought this cookbook for my 14 year old twin sons, who have always enjoyed cooking alongside me, but never attempted anything on their own before.

They both instantly loved this book, saw lots of things that they fancied cooking, but, unlike many other cookbooks, felt confident enough to give them a go.

My sons are very dyslexic, but they found the layout easy to follow and the pictures useful.

These are not groundbreaking recipes, or even the best renditions of well-known dishes, but they work fine, are well illustrated and introduce young cooks to a range of techniques in a very straightforward, jargon free way.

There are also (from my point of view) helpful comments on diet and nutrition, delivered in a very matter of fact way.

Impressive all in all

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book - but this is the US version 17 Aug 2006
When we first purchased the UK version of this book it inspired my teenage son to start cooking. The book was so well used that I ordered a replacement last week and unfortunately Amazon only now supply the US version, which gives everything in cup sizes rather than metric and has translated many food items which confuse UK kids (eg Zuchini rather than Courgettes). Buy the book - it's excellent, but search for the UK version if you live in the UK, don't take this (cheaper) US substitute

4.0 out of 5 stars My son cooks from this 3 Mar 2007
By Nina
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I gave this to my 13-year-old son for Christmas and he has cooked various recipes from it. He is quite enthusiastic about it. The 'cool' factor of the book makes, I think, all the difference, and the fact that it's explicitly addressed to boys. The recipes are fairly traditional -- which is fine for those boys who are less adventurous. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooking up a storm 8 April 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Arrived this morning and my 13 year old son was so impressed, he immediately went off to make some scrambled egg on toast and is now making shortbread, all off his own bat. Would highly recommend and am looking forward to someone else in the house cooking dinner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for teenagers! 30 Dec 2005
Although aimed at teenagers, and written in a style to communicate with them, Sam is one of their peers after all, it is clear and concise enough to be of use to anyone who wants to get into the kitchen and cook healthy food easily. I bought it because it has a lot of "back to basic" recipes in which seem to be missing from a lot of cookbooks aimed at beginners to cooking. It is also full of ideas for food which appeals to teenagers, as a mum (and college student!) this is invaluable information! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a basic cookbook but doesn't want the bulk or wordiness of the Good Housekeeping Cookbook (can you still get it?) or the likes of Delia Smith (good as she is).
