Cashew Chicken Stir-Fry
This dish from Max Archer of McPherson, Kansas, packs some heat. Adjust it to suit your taste by varying the amounts of chili paste and poblano chiles.
Max, a 16-year-old high school student, perfected his dish in classes at cookware stores and the Culinary Camp for Kids in nearby Lindsborg. "I have a lot of fun making it," he says. "You just throw stuff in.''
Max started cooking around age 9, inspired by his father, Richard. "When I was younger, he would always cook Italian on Sunday evenings, and I'd always sit there and watch him," Max says. Now, Dad watches him.
