Sixteen-year-old Sophie Nicolaides was practically raised in the kitchen of her family’s Italian-Greek restaurant, Taverna Ristorante. When her best friend, Alex, tries to persuade her to audition for a new reality show, Teen Test Kitchen, Sophie is reluctant. But the prize includes a full scholarship to one of America’s finest culinary schools and a summer in Napa, California, not to mention fame.Once on set, Sophie immediately finds herself in the thick of the drama—including a secret burn book, cutthroat celebrity judges, and a very cute French chef. Sophie must figure out a way to survive all the heat and still stay true to herself. A terrific YA offering—fresh, fun, and sprinkled with romance.

I owe a great big thank- you to a number of people for their valuablecontributions to this book. First and foremost, thanks to my agent,Mitchell Waters. Thanks to my esteemed editor, Christy Ottaviano,and to Amy Allen and the rest of the team at Henry Holt/MacmillanChildren’s Publishing Group. Chandra Ram read the manuscriptwith a keen culinary eye and developed most of the recipes, for which she deserves credit. Sara Otterstrom provided insight into theworld of tele vision production. The community of chefs and volun-teers at Salud! Cooking School in Nashville were an inspiration, aswas Michael Pollan’s fascinating and important book,
The Omni-vore’s Dilemma.
Of course, much gratitude and love to AmmAppa,my friends, and family, whose unflagging support and enthusiasmmean the world to me. Last, but certainly not least, thanks to myreaders, who make writing not just possible but worthwhile.

 y mother’s recipe for tomato sauce starts with ripeplum tomatoes. To peel them, you use a sharp knife to cuta tiny

in the skin at one end. You dunk them in boilingwater, just for a second
maybe ten
and run them under cold water. Then you pull back the skins, just like peeling abanana. You crush the tomatoes with your hands and stewthem over low heat in their own juices with garlic, onions,and a bay leaf that have been sautéed in extra- virgin oliveoil. Dash in some salt and pepper, and there you have it.The smell is nothing short of heaven.My father says this tomato sauce was the first thing mymother mastered in the kitchen. He likes to add oregano andbasil and more garlic
always more garlic. I never knew mymother, but I know this recipe by heart. I have it displayedin a five-by-seven, plastic craft store frame on the desk inmy room, the desk where I’m supposed to do homework but
