Such a great book. This book was informative and interesting. Explanations are kept simple and gets right to the point. Beautiful pictures and illustrations. Science and cooking go hand in hand which is why it’s so much fun helping children learn this too. Anyone who loves cooking and/or shows others how to cook should enjoy this book.
