Book Description

1 Sep 2012 Mission Explore
Mission:Explore Food is a revolutionary cookbook, guide, fieldbook and atlas to what we grow in the ground, chase around fields, put in our mouths, poo out our bums and plant our seeds in. The book will include scores of both delicious and disgusting recipes, missions, games and wisdom on good ways to find, eat and dispose of food.

Written by The Geography Collective (a team of teachers, academics, artists and explorers) in partnership with City Farmers and illustrated by Tom Morgan-Jones, Mission:Explore Food will go where no other family food-related book dares!

The first Mission:Explore Book won the Hay Festival & National Trust Outdoor Book of the Year 2011 and is Pink Stinks for being forward thinking and positive on gender issues. Our next book will be even bigger and better.

Mission:Explore Food will cover sustainable, healthy, slow, self-grown, urban farmed, ethical, local and international food. Readers will be encouraged to think critically and creatively about where their food comes from, how it's transported, traded, processed, prepared, cook, eaten and disposed of.

Chapters in the 256 page full colour and illustrated hardback book include:
1. Grow 2. Harvest 3. Cook 4. Eat 5. Waste 6. Soil

In true Mission:Explore style readers will be challenged to complete missions which involve planting, digging, watering, finding, foraging, growing, investigating, testing, questioning, sifting, rolling, talking, throwing, climbing, harvesting, hunting, picking, sharing, learning, soiling, pooing, weeing, recycling, trading, singing, creating, cooking, stiring, boiling, grating, skimming, churning, thinking, mapping, eating, tasting, smelling, sniffing, burning, chilling, drinking, gargling, farming, playing and fooding.

A series of engaging missions that help you learn more about food, where it comes from, where it ends up and how to generally be more thoughtful around what you eat. Lots of mess and fun for all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book 4 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow, this series gets better as it goes on... Continuing with its mission to encourage all ages to engage with, and explore, the wider world, this time the focus moves to food. Cookbook, guerrilla gardener's manual, sustainability handbook... the missions will provide hours of fun whilst illustrating that geography permeates every aspect of life. Engaging and quirky text supported by beautiful illustrations, it would be a brilliant gift for any age. Just don't leave it gathering dust on the bookshelf... remember 'it's good to play with your food!'

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is awesome 31 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
An exciting collection of guerilla geography activities to help children (and excitable adults) to get involved with the sustainable food chain.

Where else can you find ideas for activities which include writing a poo diary, carrot colouring, drawing your very own woodlouse castle, designing a machine that can cook using the elements, weighing yourself in rubbish, growing a teeny tiny salad, hints and tips on pooing...

I can't wait until my printed copy arrives in the post!
