Where There's a Whisk | Sarah J. Schmitt
3 posts | 3 read | 2 to read
Life is what you bake it. Peyton Sinclaire wants nothing more than to escape her life as a diner waitress in her small, North Florida town and attend culinary school. Top Teen Chef, Food TV's new show that pairs reality TV drama with a fast-paced culinary competition, is her ticket out of her boring future. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make her dreams come true and Peyton is determined to prove to herself, and the world, that where you're born does not determine where you can go. However, once on the show, Peyton quickly discovers that there is more to the competition than just a well-seasoned dish. As things start to heat up on and off the set, Peyton will have to prove to the judges that she deserves to win while trying to untangle what is real and what is scripted drama, and decide what she is willing to risk to win before her dreams end up on the chopping block.

I bought this more for the concept of it than the actual plot. But, I was disappointed with how little the cooking show aspect of it was showed. It would be Peyton struggling to come up with an idea for about a page or so and then the next part would be half a page, judging and elimination. I felt those were too sudden because you would be reading one sentence and then the next the one person you thought would be in the finale went home. It ⬇️

Zoe-h confused me because the cooking wasn‘t the main plot point, but neither was the romance or personal and outer conflicts. Everything just existed on a very low-key basis, to the point where everything just felt dull. However, I was still intrigued enough to read it. Soft pick. 4⭐️ 3mo

A lighthearted YA contemporary about teen chefs competing in a reality show for a culinary school scholarship. Fairly superficial - the depth in the characters is mostly underdeveloped - but a pleasant fun read about nice people doing what they love. A palatable snack of a book and just what I was in the mood for.

Thank you to Netgalley and Perseus Books, Running Press for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book was so adorable! I love watching cooking shows, and the idea of a YA book set on the set of a cooking show was too tempting to pass up. (Cont. ⬇️)

CoffeeK8 This story is about Peyton Sinclaire a teen chef from a very poor area of the Florida Panhandle. She's one of 8 contestants on the show Top Teen Chef and and she hopes winning the show & getting a culinary scholarship will be her ticket to a better life. However, once she's on the show, she realized how much more difficult the whole process is. 1y
