My book talk: Travel the globe by bowl and plate with fresh and clever recipes celebrating seasonal food, sustainable farming, and happy taste buds. These teen-crafted recipes will please vegetarians, carnivores, eat-local champions, and fans of tastes from around the world.

Start the day with Pumpkin Pancakes or Huevos Rancheros. Offer Flower Prawn Soup and Chicken Noodle Soup with Cheese Muffins for lunch, then plan Hummus or Scallion Pancakes as a snack.

Family and friends will enjoy Green Pesto Tagliatelle or traditional Sancocho from the Dominican Republic for the evening meal, followed by scrumptious Crepes with Orange Sauce or Oreo Cupcakes for dessert.

The Green Teen Cookbook is a one-stop resource for information on many issues of interest to thoughtful consumers, from eating locally to fair trade. Especially useful are the instructions for seasonal variations of tasty favorites like lasagna, fruit salad, and mini-fritattas.  (One of 6,000 books recommended on www.abookandahug.com)
