Are you hungry to learn more about your food? Each recipe in this accessible beginner’s cookbook is accompanied by “The Science Bit,” a fun chemical or historical fact about the baked good or one of its ingredients. Make a pizza while learning whether cheese really gives people nightmares, or bake a meringue and read how it keeps ice cream from melting. Engaging color photographs and clear instructions are displayed in a playful, bright layout. Back matter includes a glossary, an index, and a list of Web sites with more cooking projects and information.

Booklist

School Library Journal

Series Review
This set is visually appealing and, with its vivid colors and vibrant design, should attract a wide audience. Each book begins with a basic, informative introduction to the featured food category, some basic rules for both health and safety, a list of the abbreviations that will be used, and symbols that will indicate when adult help is needed. The 12 recipes that follow provide lists of ingredients, numbered instructions, and a “Science Bit” sidebar that explains why certain foods behave in a particular way. Clear, color photos featuring a diverse cast of kids illustrate the steps. Unfortunately, the list of ingredients is often extensive and contains some specific items that might prove difficult to find. For example, “Sticky Chicky Burger Stacks” requires little gem lettuce leaves, “Ice Bowl Fruit Salad” asks for four Gerbera flower heads, Cherry Puff Pie needs English mustard powder, etc. However, budding chefs will welcome the challenge of the complexity of these recipes and the scientific information is a definite plus.
