Well, that was how I felt until a few days ago, when my Mother presented me with an early birthday present- The Green Teen Cookbook.
The Green Teen Cookbook is a basic guide to cooking in-season, environmentally-sound produce and seriously delicious food- all on a budget. Genuinely, I was quite taken aback by how good the book is.
Not being an experienced cook (like many teenagers, pot noodle is usually my greatest challenge in the kitchen) I chose to start with “Sushi for Dummies”- a simple summer recipe donated by Pauline Blistene.
I LOVED IT. Making the little sushi rolls was really easy- surprisingly so, actually- , and trying a new recipe was great fun, especially because I was with a friend, so we had a brilliant time slicing and choosing the fillings. And to top it all off, the sushi was delicious!
So kudos to The Green Teen Cookbook- for converting me from a very reluctant cook (as my parents will tell you), to someone who actually quite liked the feeling of preparing a meal!
But it's not just the sushi I loved- I also made a chicken noodles dish, and some seriously tasty guacamole!
In short, The Green Teen Cookbook will definitely be a permanent addition to my kitchen- one that I’m certain will be well-used! There are so many recipes in the book that I really want to try- I’ve already got my eye on making a really yummy looking summer quiche...
