Too Many Cooks
"It felt like Mike Tyson knocked me out with a lot of flavors. I took a bite and it felt like Pop Rocks flavors just blasting my mouth like a rocket ship..." -- Ander Asencio, Too Many Cooks
Too Many Cooks is a collection of personal narratives written by sixth graders at PS/MS 7 and Global Tech Prep in East Harlem. Over the course of six weeks, students worked with 826NYC volunteers to turn their personal food experiences into the stories you see here today. From family food fights to jelly bean and Hot Cheeto challenges, each piece pushes us to think about how cooking and eating brings our communities together. Whether it's eating chocolate chip cookies with grandma, trying tacos for the first time, or learning to make their favorite foods, these young writers have something to say on every subject. So sit back, clear your schedule, and prepare for a feast that'll leave you hungry for more.
Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit 826NYC, a nonprofit organization encouraging the exploration of endless possibilities through the power of writing.
