1. Omari McQueen’s Best Bites Cookbook by Omari McQueen
Omari McQueen is not a regular twelve-year-old kid. At the age of twelve, he is the youngest vegan chef in the UK, YouTuber, youngest restauranter in the world, cooking show host and child entrepreneur. Adding to these, he also recently authored a vegan recipes cookbook titled Omari McQueen’s Best Bites Cookbook. When Omari was seven years old, his mother would suffer from body paralysing migraines. As she was unable to cook and his father was out for work, Omari began helping his elder brother prepare meals for the family. Soon, he turned vegan after reading how a vegan diet could help his mother and began making the same for her.
As time passed, he took more interest in the art and began learning newer cooking techniques. In January this year, the UK-based kid published a vegan cookbook. The book begins with a small intro by Omari followed by what it means to be a vegan, some tips on becoming one and the ingredients he uses for cooking. The family has Jamaican roots hence some recipes have a taste of the Caribbean. The book consists of more than 35 mouthwatering vegan recipes starting with morning breakfast, lunch, snacks and after-meal desserts. The cookbook is a good starting point for kids like Omari who take interest in cooking. And an added advantage is they will learn to be more compassionate towards the environment and animals, the recipes being plant-based.
