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?
