5.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for grown-ups, 17 Oct 2012
This review is from: Incredible Edibles (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Incredible Edibles was a terrific TV programme. It was screened on the kid's channel, CBBC, but whenever I saw it I was left wondering why there was nothing like it for the adults. It was an educational show but not in a po-faced way; Stefan Gates's enthusiastic presentation made sure that it was always an entertaining watch. This book, arising from the series, is every bit as good.

Just by flicking through it it is immediately obvious that this is an excellently designed book, full of colour and eye-catching photographs. Once I started to read through it though I was even more impressed as it I found it to be crammed full of extremely interesting, well written items. There are recipes, some sensible but mostly quirky; this is the book to consult if you fancy making a bum sandwich or a bowl of blood soup with eyeballs. There are articles about some of the world's strangest foods, like frog tea or camel hump and there are ideas for food related experiments that readers can attempt at home. Even more importantly there are plenty of articles about one of most kid's favourite subjects - farts.

I really enjoyed this book, reading it from cover to cover despite it not being intended to be read by those well turned 50; I would expect kids to absolutely love it.

Hi Bantam Dave,
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: l.salisbury3@lcc.arts.ac.uk

I look forward to you reply.
Best Regards,
Lavender Salisbury.
