Twelve-year-old chef Zoey Kates Fried Banana Fondue is delectable, her Maple Cinnamon Crab Fajitas are divine, and her Chocolate-Covered Pork Chops are to die for. Zoey is the best cook in town, and she wants everyone to know it. Shes on a mission to start her own restaurant but quickly learns that the restaurant industry is competitive . . . and dangerous. Some people see Zoey as a threat and will use any means necessary to ensure that she fails.
This book drew me in like ice cream on a hot day. From the very first page, I immediately fell in love with Zoeys character. She is a force to be reckoned with and oozes confidence.
Zoeys dishes, to me, sound disgusting. Then again, Im not that adventurous when it comes to food. Im 24 years old, and my favorite lunch is still peanut butter sandwiches. Its pretty much the perfect food if you dont have a peanut allergy. I do love the description of how Zoey prepares her food. You can picture her flying around the kitchen like a tornado.
The only thing I didnt like was how Zoey treats her friend Dallin. She kind of treats him more like a tool than a friend.
This is the perfect book for fans of cooking shows like Master Chef Junior. Ive been meaning to watch this show for a while, but I have two problems with it. 1) I dont like Gordon Ramsay that much. Hes always yelling at people and telling them what theyre doing wrong. And 2) Cooking shows make me hungry.
