Praise for Notes from a Young Black Chef (Adapted for Young Adults):

"Enough sizzle, color, and character to entice young readers." --Kirkus Reviews

An inspirational and true story that ends not with our YA protagonist getting everything he wanted, but with a real person experiencing loss and continuing to persevere." --Shelf Awareness

"Onwuachi's Top Chef followers and fans will . . . enjoy this frenetic account of a young Black man's determination to create 'a fine-dining, modern American, globally influenced restaurant that tells my life story through food.'" --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"[Onwuachi] candidly declares how the weight of the trials he experienced impacted his story and fortified his culinary dreams, with an intensive reflection of family roots, aspirations, and expectations." --School Library Journal
