With your guidance, budding chefs can follow the easy instructions to transform fresh, simple ingredients into tasty snacks, beverages, entrees, and treats. This book includes * More than 50 heat-free recipes that are fun to make and taste great * An explanation of the learning that occurs as children cook * Tips to create your own classroom cooking centre * Nutrition information, extension ideas, and interesting food facts

Reviews

Cooking is Cool makes preparing and enjoying food with children a breeze! All recipes are heat-free, and having sampled some, I can vouch for the delicious recipes and their artful presentations. Cooking is Cool is perfectly suited to young cooks in classrooms, child care settings, or homes. I like that the food presentations are artfully pleasing to children. I especially like the little Did You Know information boxes, offering such facts like, Did you know humans are the only animals to peel a banana from the stem end? Marianne E. Dambra has perfected heat-free cooking for kids and made the learning experiences as important as the yummy results! I highly recommend Cooking is Cool for kids to enjoy learning through cooking.
