I think this book will appeal to a wide variety of kids. It has great recipes, with the level of difficulty clearly stated, so beginners will be able to try their hand, but those up for a challenge will also have options. Kids that are into cooking will love the variety of recipes and understanding why they word. Kids that are into science will be able to the practical side of it all. Overall a great cookbook with fun link to science!

Great book! Teaches kids science while they make (or help make) very kid-friendly recipes. Starts with an overview of how the "Labs" (recipes) are written and a section on food safety, explained in easy to understand terms for kids. Includes items from drinks to snacks to meals and desserts. There are recipes for making your own root beer and cheese! There are some recipes in here that kids may not have tried before, but framing it as a science experiment would likely help them be more willing to taste. All recipes have an equipment list along with the ingredients, a difficulty rating, and a series of color photos showing the steps. They also explain "the science behind the food" to cover what is happening with the dish and why. This book is perfect for school age kids to work with parents or on their own as they get older, to learn both how to cook and the science behind it.

La cucina: una laboratorio chimico-fisico che tutti hanno a disposizione, ma a cui a volte non si pensa.

Eppure, ogni volta che si preparano dei biscotti, o si fa un piatto di pasta, o si mette a lievitare il pane entrano in scena processi segreti, che questo libro di deliziose ricette porta allo scoperto.

Cinquantadue ricette, cinquantadue piatti, cinquantadue schede che spiegano come chimica, fisica e biologia si siano messe al servizio del piccolo cuoco, permettendogli di realizzare manicaretti di ogni genere.

Un volume interessante, utile e divertente, da esplorare una ricetta alla volta. :)
