I guess I should tell you the reason I’m so excited… my son Brooks (RecipeBoy) is featured in the book! It’s also a terrific read- featuring young foodies (ages 5 to 18) from all over the world. Inspirational stories of what these kids are doing in their local communities and across the web are included, as well as delicious recipes too! I’m giving away two copies of the FutureChefs Cookbook- scroll to the end of this post for details
About the book: There are 150 recipes from cooking-obsessed kids and teens from a variety of social and cultural backgrounds. This is a sampling of our culinary future! The author is veteran journalist and trained chef Ramin Ganeshram. She shares profiles of young foodies whose experience varies from cooking contest winners, food bloggers, activists and brand-new cooks in the kitchen. The book shares their passion, their stories and their recipes. It’s a terrific book to share with your own children, reading through the profiles to see what each of these kids is accomplishing at such a young age in the world of food. It’s truly an inspiring read.
Here are a few of the kids who are featured in the book:
Brooks Lange- age 13 (Reno, Nevada): My son! He was given a food blog for his 10th birthday- RecipeBoy.com, where he has shared 100 recipes since its debut. Brooks (along with his Mom) acted as a spokesperson for McCormick Spices. He has been hired to create recipes for brands, and he has won a few recipe contests too. Having recently moved to Reno from San Diego, Brooks hopes to get involved in his new city doing some charity fundraising using his food industry connections. Brooks’ Raspberry- Dark Chocolate Banana Bread recipe was inspired by his love of chocolate and fresh raspberries. The recipe is included in the book, but you can also find it on his RecipeBoy blog. You can follow Brooks’ food adventures on Instagram and Twitter.
