The time has come for my daughter to learn how to cook. She is eager and has an affinity for various cultures and a well developed palate. We reside in Chicago and while there are a few options commercially, most are geared towards adults and not for the older teen cook. I would really like to give her a solid foundation and would appreciate any suggestions you can offer on books, classes, techniques that would be suitable for a beginner (17 yrs). Thanks in advance!
