a basic guide to cooking in-season, environmentally-sound produce and seriously delicious food - all on a budget...kudos to The Green Teen Cookbook for converting me from a reluctant cook (as my parents will tell you) to someone who actually quite liked the feeling of preparing a meal! 'It is the perfect anditode to our take-away crazy food habits and will help kick the air mile addiction...a good balance between presenting the opinions for ethical eating without being a preachy bible of eco warriorism. 'This is real cooking...a revolutionary little gem in its own right...This is quite political. And so it should be. What really matters is what's going on at ground level...the writers are real teens... there is no talking down... it's appealing, lively, and makes you want to try the recipes. ~ 'This fabulous cookbook has been shortlisted for The People's Book Prize and been featured in the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival and in the Gourmand Magazine. This cookbook and rough guide to ethical eating is not just for teens though, it's for everyone who wants to eat well, pay less and save the planet! My soon to be 12 y/o loved this book...a great gift for teenagers of all ages and has great advice for everyone to live by. I've cooked some of the recipes from it and they taste delicious!' @NotAllAboutBoys
