Synopsis

Twist it Up by Jack Witherspoon

Inspiration resides in the kitchen for eleven-year-old Jack Witherspoon. And for good reason. When Jack was going through incredibly tough times battling leukemia for the second time he sought solace in the Food Network and decided his dream was to become a chef. Before long, Jack was creating his own recipes, cooking for cancer fundraisers, and even coining his own culinary catchphrase ( Twist it up! ) to characterize his individual spin on comfort food favorites like French toast, pesto pizza, shepherd s pie, meat loaf, cupcakes, and more. Clear, step-by-step instructions and sumptuous photographs will encourage cooks of all ages to whip up delicious recipes and make mouthwatering memories in the kitchen.

Reviews

Kids with an already adventurous palate will be delighted; picky eaters may turn up their noses, but hopefully they will be inspired by Jack's accomplishments to try at least one bite or maybe even two. - School Library Journal
