Buttermilk Pumpkin Waffles for breakfast. Beef Bourguignon for dinner. Mochi Donuts for dessert. America's Test Kitchen kid tester Verveine Oringer and her dad, James Beard Award-winning chef Ken Oringer, teach you how to make all of that and more—all gluten-free. Kids can cook like chefs, too!

In this middle-grade cookbook, 13-year-old Verveine Oringer (along with her dad, chef and restaurateur Ken Oringer) share kid-tested and kid-approved recipes that are doable, delicious, and also happen to be gluten free. After Verveine was diagnosed with celiac disease in early 2020, the whole Oringer family needed to change the way they ate. With the help of her dad the chef, Verveine and Ken found ways to create approachable recipes that feel a little fancy but are perfect for young chefs! From Miso Banana Bread for breakfast to Chicken Milanese for dinner—plus a chapter of advanced, chef-y recipes thoughtfully explained by Ken—this book will take young chefs on a culinary journey. Seventy plus recipes developed and written by Verveine and Ken have all been kid-tested and kid-approved by America’s Test Kitchen Kids' panel of over 15,000 at-home recipe testers to make this book a win for all young chefs.

About the Author

Verveine Oringer has grown up in restaurants. After Verveine was diagnosed with celiac disease in early 2020, she knew she needed to change the way she ate. She tackled this change in a way that only a kid raised by a chef could—through recipes. Now, she’s sharing those recipes with kids just like her. Ken Oringer is one of Boston’s most notable chefs and restaurateurs with over 30 years of industry experience. The early success of his first restaurant, Clio, earned Ken a James Beard Award for Best Chef Northeast in 2001. Ken has opened restaurants around Boston as well as abroad to much critical acclaim, including Uni, Toro, Coppa, and Little Donkey.                             Editor: America’s Test Kitchen has been teaching home cooks how to be successful in the kitchen for 25 years.
