" What could be better than science and good food? " said.

" This was a fun cookbook to peruse. The recipes are often simply, always easy to follow, and make some great explanations to the science of cooking. If your kids (or you!) want to start exploring such a fascinating topic, this is a wonderful place to start.I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Wonderful illustrations, easy to follow directions plus easily found ingredients make this book a big winner in my book!I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

"This is a well done science book filled with experiments kids can do in the kitchen. Some of the experiments won't work for kids on restricted diets, but there are enough that every family should be able to find some.

Sections include: drinks, snacks, cheese and ferments, dips and sauces, main dishes, sides, baked things, decorations and desserts. Each one has between 4 and 12 or so recipes. The recipes tell if there are allergens and also have an ease level. Each recipe has some sort of scientific principle that it demonstrates.

Examples of recipes -- make a syrup for homemade soda and learn about supersaturated solutions, making popcorn in a microwave in paper bags to learn about water vapor and gas pressure (though both the USDA and the popcorn board have said this is not recommended, as paper bags are not processed to be safe for heated contact with food and are full of as many as 300 different chemicals from processing pulp and recycled paper, see: https://www.freep.com/story/life/food...), making hummus to learn what pureeing is, and making alfredo sauce to learn how to make sauces more viscous.

Quite a lot of the recipes involve wheat, dairy, meat and sugar. Nutritional information is not provided. Color photos accompany every recipe. Directions are very detailed and it's quite heavy on safety information in most cases.

If our family ate a Standard American Diet, I'd probably like this book a bit more. As it is, most of the recipes won't work for us and the few sentences about the science of the food can't justify getting a copy for our home. Others are likely to enjoy it more.

My rating system:

1 = hated it
2 = it was okay
3 = liked it
4 = really liked it
5 = love it, plan to purchase, and/or would buy it again if it was lost

I read a temporary digital ARC of the book for the purpose of review.

"An amazingly detailed cookbook for kids. I love the variety of recipes and the complete and understandable instructions. Many recipes do call for adult supervision, The science behind the food after each recipe is detailed and understandable without talking down to the reader. I learned a few new things about my food. The only problem I had with my netgalley copy of the book was that the name of what you were going to make didn't show up at the beginning of the recipe. It just said Lab 34 or Lab 47. You could figure it out, but it would have been nice not to have to." said.

"This is such a fabulous book Not only are there some brilliant recipes but it also explains the science behind each recipe and how they work!

This summer I have decided to use some of these recipes with my son so that we can do a home 'summer camp' and learn a little bit about food science.

Each section is very well laid out with a list of ingredients and also a list of the equipment that you will need.

Some recipes and lessons i'm looking forward to trying are

Angel food cake
Wicked good chocolate cupcakes
Lemon curd
Cream puffs and
Marshmallows
