Bought this for my 11 yr old son who is a budding chef and he absolutely loves it. So far he's cooked the tortilla, chicken liver pate and chilli con carne recipes - they were all fantastic. The instructions are clear, easy to follow and there is a mixture of more advanced 'adult' & tasty snack 'teenage' recipes although they all look good. The added bonus as parents is that we no longer have to cook all the meals!

Ok, I will be slightly honest and say that: i just enjoyed looking at the photos...but hey, it made me feel hungry. Still, it deserves 4 stars for the good photos ;) oh-kay, now I am hungry.

Much better and healthier food than I expected for a teen cookbook! He took some gourmet type recipes and made them seem easy. I found some good ideas and a lot of recipes I'd like to try.
