A British schoolboy is being hailed as the new Jamie Oliver. Sam Stern now 16 has always had a keen interest in cookery, texting simple recipes to his older brother when he started university. Publishing company Walker Books saw his potential and offered him a four book deal. Sam’s first book, “Cooking up a Storm” was published last December and was an immediate success, selling over 300,000 copies worldwide. Sam proved particularly popular in the US, appearing on tv networks and radio shows to promote his book and became an overnight celebrity. Not bad for a 16 year old! Sam’s new book, “Real Food, Real Fast”, has just been published over here. Sam is concerned that many youngsters come home from school and eat junk food rather than preparing something healthy to eat. He has written to the Prime Minister in a bid to enlist his help in getting other youngsters into the kitchen cooking.
