Zoey has a dream to open a restaurant and not just anywhere, she wants to use a trolley car! However, there are many others who don’t want that and try to stop her. That’s what I like about this story - Zoey never gives up! This book includes real recipes you can make. Recommended to anyone who likes to cook. Also, if you like this story then try Diane Muldrow’s Dish series.

Twelve-year-old chef Zoey Kate's Fried Banana Fondue is delectable, her Maple Cinnamon Crab Fajitas are divine, and her Chocolate-Covered Pork Chops are to die for. Zoey is the best cook in town and she wants everyone to know it. She's on a mission to start her own restaurant, but quickly learns that the restaurant industry is competitive . . . and dangerous. There are people who see Zoey as a threat, and they'll use any means necessary to make sure that she fails. Featuring a precocious, larger-than-life character, lots of humor, fast-paced action and mouth-watering foods, this cooking story is sure to appeal to young foodies and fans of shows like MasterChef Junior and Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off.
