A curated collection of 150 recipes drawn from the experience and kitchens of young cooks all over America, FutureChefs brings real, cooking-obsessed tweens and teens to the page as relatable characters who span a diverse social and cultural experience. Here, in rich, inspiring detail, is the ethnoculinary America of the future.

Veteran journalist and trained chef Ramin Ganeshram has crafted profiles of serious young cooks who run the gamut of experience, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds to create an inspiring prism through which readers might see what's ahead in America's food culture. Whether they've taken to it because of necessity, inspiration, or sheer passion, these are kids, teens, and tweens who are very serious about food. 

This is a generation more interested in hands-on cooking than ever, but they're lacking material that treats them as a serious part of cooking culture; FutureChefs is the perfect vehicle.
