Growing up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Chef Gaby Melian began cooking at just eight years old. From  crimping empanadas with her family to enjoying her grandmother’s “la pizza rapida,” Gaby has always  had a passion for cooking and teaching others how to develop confidence in the kitchen. Once she  moved to the United States, Gaby’s interest in food grew into a career and she climbed the culinary  ladder, from selling empanadas as a street food vendor to becoming a test kitchen manager with more  than 20 years of industry experience. Now adding cookbook author to the list, Gaby goes back to her roots with Gaby’s Latin American Kitchen, which features recipes and anecdotes from Gaby’s childhood  through her many travels and experiences.

Aligning with America’s Test Kitchen Kids’ mission to build a new generation of empowered cooks and  engaged eaters, Gaby’s Latin American Kitchen fosters an appreciation of Latin cuisines and offers young  chefs a hands-on experience creating recipes from other cultures. The new title is divided into six chapters: desayuno (breakfast), almuerzo (lunch), meriendas y bebidas (snacks and drinks), cena  (dinner), guarniciones y salsas (sides and sauces) and postre (dessert). From cheesy arepas to sprinkle covered chocolate brigadeiros, each recipe includes the country of origin, recipe history, and tips right  from Gaby’s own kitchen. Spanish language phrases and cooking terms are also translated throughout  the book and highlighted in an educational Spanish glossary. 

Like all America’s Test Kitchen Kids cookbooks, the recipes in Gaby’s Latin American Kitchen were tested  and approved by a group of over 15,000 kid testers, so each dish is guaranteed to set young chefs up for success.
