School Library Journal - 05/01/2017 Gr 2–5—Food-infused fiction that combines celebrity chefs, reality TV, and a focus on healthy eating. This first installment in an anticipated series is about a lively televised cooking competition featuring four talented tweens: energetic Tate, charming Rae, worldly Caroline, and hypercompetitive Oliver. Through numerous interviews, taste tests, and chopping challenges, readers get to know each character. The black-and-white illustrations complement the story and add humor. There is a bonus in the back matter that includes techniques for aspiring young chefs. VERDICT A mouthwatering read for all foodies. Be sure to save room for the next two volumes.—Paula Huddy, The Blake School-Highcroft Campus, Wayzata, MN - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
