And lots more all great recipies ansd all fun to do. a book for the family
Use it with my class of KS2 class and they absolutely love it! Some of the recipes are a little complex and take a lot of further planning and preparation but are very fun! Everything so far has turned out to be rather delicious and has been great to try things out of the normal and with links back to Literacy of Roald Dahl topic it makes it an overall winner.
As big fans of Roald Dahl we knew that we'd like it. The children have enjoyed making hot frogs and wiggly worm spaghetti. Mr Twit's beard next. Some of the recipes are quite old fashioned though and require a sugar thermometer so not great for very young children
