Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My seven year old son, who loves science and enjoys cooking, absolutely LOVED this book! In fact it is an ideal book for a boy who enjoys cooking, as so many cookbooks on the market are aimed with girls in mind, but this will certainly fill that gap. It has some absolutely revolting recipes guaranteed to appeal to young boys - such as Maggoty-Brained Pumpkin Heads, Blood Soup with Eyeballs (this has the added bonus of turning poo red, which made my son and his friend laugh - a LOT) and some great easy recipes, such as fruit with chocolate - in which smarties/chocolate buttons are merely inserted into raspberries. In amongst all this are great scientic facts - how to find the iron in your cereal, why onions make you cry, and how to catch farts in a jar (I did already say this book is aimed at boys, didn't I?). What else can I say - my daughter thought it was yukky, but my son loved it. Oddly enough the recipe he liked best (out of those we tried so far) most was the really hot chocolate with chilli, which I doubted he would like. This is a great book for boys of about 7+, so forget the pink cupcakes and consider snot cakes instead. A real winner, which will get all boys reading and experimenting in the kitchen.

Hi S Riaz,
I am in my third year doing my BA in Graphic Design at London College of Communication. For one of my briefs I have been asked to find a design solution to help reduce food wastage. I decided to create an app, targeted a young children to use with their parents and carers. I wanted to target young children as they are our next generation.
Fruit and veg are one of the highest foods we waste in the UK, my app will be full of recipes and tips for parents/carers to use and learn with their children. I have a disadvantage as I do not have kids and am not familiar with them.
Here is my email if you could please kindly help with my uni project by giving me a feedback for my app, it will be much appreciated.
This is my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to you reply.
