Would you want to compete on a reality cooking TV show for
a chance at fame, glory and a scholarship to the culinary institute of your
dreams? Sophie Nicolaides does.
Cooking is Sophie’s true talent and passion. Knowing that
she was meant to be in the kitchen since her Easy Bake Oven days, Sophie loves
working in her family-owned Greek-Italian restaurant, Taverna Ristorante. So
when her BFF Alex shares an exciting opportunity to compete on Teen Test Kitchen, a seven-week reality
TV competition where the winner gets a scholarship to the National Culinary
Academy in Napa Valley and an apprenticeship with judge and top chef, Tommy
Chang, she agrees to attend the open casting call.
Much to her surprise, Sophie
is picked! And soon after arriving, she discovers that she has some seriously
tough competition. The pressure is on as Sophie and her seven competitors
attend classes at the Academy, learn about new flavors and techniques each
week, all while being tested. Reality TV is definitely what Sophie thought it
would be! From being followed around by a camera crew to interviews to cooking
in a gorgeous new kitchen arena, Kathryn Williams knows how to heat
things up in her latest book, Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff That Made Me
This book is a fast, but
super fun read that will keep you wanting more. Learn about the culinary
world…and get some yummy recipes provided at the end of each chapter to test
