Synopsis

Grow It, Cook It with Kids by Amanda Grant

These days, when people are particularly concerned about the provenance of their food and making their weekly budget go further, vegetable patches and allotments have become de rigueur. There's never been a better time to teach kids about the benefits of growing their own fruit and veg, and how to cook them. Grow It, Cook It with Kids is a beautifully photographed guide aimed at getting primary school-aged children into the garden, sowing seeds, looking after their plants, and showing them how and when to harvest their produce. There is no prouder moment for a child than when they can pick the pea pods they have lovingly grown, learn how to shell them and serve the little peas at dinner time. The book shows how to sow, grow, look after, harvest, prepare and cook a number of child-friendly fruit and veg, including herbs, carrots, tomatoes, beans, and raspberries. The book also includes basic gardening and cooking techniques.
