BOOK MENTIONS

 

For some perspective, I turned to Karen Rogers, the founder of Sprouts Cooking Club, a kids’ cooking school that’s been around since 2005. I figured that she’d seen it all, and she has: from the disadvantaged kids to whom Sprouts provides scholarships – some have never heard of an eggplant – to the, well, less disadvantaged. “We were doing a market cooking class at Oliveto in Oakland,” Rogers comments, “and a kid comes up to me and says, ‘I’m training for MasterChef.’ And we said, “When are tryouts?’ And he said, ‘Two years.'”
