Ten Bumbling Chefs
Big blunders at the teppanyaki grill
by Kimberli Ball

Overview


Children love going to the teppanyaki grill (often called a "hibachi" grill in the U.S.) for family celebrations and to watch the chef toss food, juggle utensils, and build flaming creations. But visitors to THIS teppanyaki grill will observe a host of mishaps: dripping oil, spilled sauce, hurled shrimp, and a blazing onion volcano that sets off the fire suppression system and calls the fire department. The head chef, Jill, is very frustrated by the blunders of her bumbling junior chefs. Will any of them learn the skills necessary to give a great performance and prepare tasty Japanese cuisine for the restaurant's guests? Grab your hashi (chopsticks) and come along on this rhyming adventure to find out! Young children will love the book's rhyming, repeating verse but kids of all ages, and their parents, will enjoy the humorous illustrations of the over-the-top blunders of the chefs. This will be a fun read-together picture book, reminding families of their own exciting experiences at teppanyaki (hibachi) restaurants.

Many children ask to have their birthday dinners at teppanyaki (hibachi) restaurants where they can watch the Japanese chef give a show while preparing the meal. Though predictable, these shows never fail to entertain. What better gift to present to the birthday boy or girl than a copy of Ten Bumbling Chefs: Big blunders at the teppanyaki grill?

Ellen
Ten Bumbling Chefs A cute sing songy book that mimics Ten Little Monkeys that will have kids giggling at the chefs at a restaurant where each of ten chefs makes blunders and mistakes. Your little chefs will also learn the difference between hibachi and teppanyaki grilling while also having the opportunity to learn to count to ten in Japanese. All’s good though because the book ends on a positive note which is a great way to end this cute book and kids will love joining in during a two line refrain. Enjoy! Read more
