Praise

Praise for Notes from a Young Black Chef (Adapted for Young Adults):

“Enough sizzle, color, and character to entice young readers.” —Kirkus Reviews

“An inspirational and true story that ends not with our YA protagonist getting everything he wanted, but with a real person experiencing loss and continuing to persevere.” —Shelf Awareness

“Onwuachi’s Top Chef followers and fans will . . . enjoy this frenetic account of a young Black man’s determination to create ‘a fine-dining, modern American, globally influenced restaurant that tells my life story through food.’” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“[Onwuachi] candidly declares how the weight of the trials he experienced impacted his story and fortified his culinary dreams, with an intensive reflection of family roots, aspirations, and expectations.” —School Library Journal

“This adaptation for young readers effectively prunes and tightens sentences, removes swear words, and takes out the recipes (as étouffée, chicken consommé, corn velouté, and egusi stew might not be big draws for young palates). While Onwuachi notes the challenges of being a Black chef in a white food culture, his dream is to see kitchens full of “white, yellow, brown, and black faces” and restaurants full of “brown and black diners, who, looking at their plates, feel seen, celebrated, and recognized.” —The Horn Book
