Produktinformationen

InhaltA 13-year-old master chef has a lot to prove as she tries to run a five-star restaurant, cook the perfect dragon cuisine, repay a greedy loan shark, and outsmart the Elven mafia in this entertaining novel.
ZusatztextLailu Loganberry is a girl with a goal. A graduate of the Chef's Academy at a precocious 13, Lailu thinks that good food should be accessible to everyone, not just the privileged. She's thrilled when her eccentric mentor, Master Slipshod, agrees to open a new restaurant, but her excitement dims exponentially when she learns that Slipshod borrowed the money for the restaurant from notorious loan shark Mr. Boss, and bartered Lailu's freedom away to boot. Luckily, Lailu's specialty is mystic cooking: she hunts and cooksmagical creatures (krakens, batyrdactyls, and, hopefully, dragons), and monster cuisine fetches a high price-if only she can convince people to come to her restaurant instead of flocking to the door of her nemesis, Greg, the wealthy and obnoxious boy from the Chef's Academy, who always seems to be turning up at the worst possible times. Rich secondary characters-Lailu's sticky fingered friend, an elf mafia, the king's executioner, and a would-be hero-round out this recipe for success. A wildly inventive fantasy with wide appeal. - Maggie Reagan
Zusammenfassung"This novel is a recipe for success." ?Kirkus Reviews
A thirteen-year-old chef has a lot to prove as she tries to run a five-star restaurant, repay a greedy loan shark, and outsmart the Elven mafia in this entertaining novel that combines all the best ingredients?fantasy, humor, adventure, action, cute boys, and a feisty heroine!
Lailu Loganberry is an expert at hunting dangerous beasts. And she's even better at cooking them!
For years Lailu has trained to be the best chef in the city. Her specialty? Monster cuisine. When her mentor agrees to open a new restaurant with Lailu as the head chef, she's never been more excited. But her celebration is cut short when she discovers that her mentor borrowed money from Mr. Boss, a vicious loan shark. If they can't pay him back, Lailu will not only lose her restaurant?she'll have to cook for Mr. Boss for the rest of her life.
As Lailu scrambles to raise the money in time, she becomes trapped in a deadly conflict between the king's cold-blooded assassin, the terrifying elf mafia, and Mr. Boss' ruthless crew. Worst of all, her only hope in outsmarting Mr. Boss lies with the one person she hates?Greg, the most annoying boy in school and her rival in the restaurant business.
But like Lailu always says, if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. And she's determined to succeed, no matter the cost!

MYSTIC COOKING
Lailu flipped a large chef?s knife end over end, scowling at the row of onions pinned to the far wall. She could have taken on another kraken or even a hydra right then?anything but this endless waiting. She almost didn?t blame Master Slipshod for taking off and leaving her alone on opening day.
?Don?t worry,? she told her remaining batch of onions. ?It will only hurt for a second.?
