Peyton is at the age that she wants to learn to cook for herself so I am always on the lookout for recipes that are healthy and easy for a beginner. The Healthy Teen Cookbook fits both of those requirements. While Peyton is not a teen, these recipes are still are a great place to start.
To be honest, some of the recipes are a little more complex than I was expecting in a teen cookbook. And some of the textures and flavors in the recipes are a little more complex than I think most kids are used to. But I really do like this cookbook.
The Healthy Teen Cookbook is filled with colorful and flavorful recipes for your family to try out. There is a little bit of everything included in this cookbook. There are 80 recipes from cultures around the world to explore.
The cookbook is broken down into 7 chapters –
Continent of North America – 12 recipes
Continent of South America – 5 recipes
Continent of Europe – 15 recipes
Continent of Africa – 10 recipes
Continent of Asia – 11 recipes
Continent of Australia – 1 recipe
Continent of Antarctica 8 recipes
And a few more recipes sprinkled throughout.
The creator of this cookbook is Chopped kid chef and entrepreneur Remmi Smith. Did you know she hosts 2 cooking shows? And serves as a national Student Ambassador for a leading food services company? This girl is busy! Her goal was to create a cookbook, filled with colorful dishes (and yes there are tons of photos in this cookbook) that are healthy for teens to start cooking. I really think she accomplished just that. This is a great cookbook for a teen that is interested in learning to cook dishes from around the world.
