Get cooking with Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous
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 Famous.
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 your own skills at home. Crushes, laughter, drama and competition will captivate you as Sophie, the down-to-earth Greek-Italian girl, shows America what she’s made of.
Be sure to check out Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous (available now!) to see if Sophie has what it takes to win.
