Review: Science You Can Eat

Have you ever wondered why onions bring tears to our eyes? Or why popcorn actually pops? How about the mysteries of the world's smelliest fruit or how to make edible slime? Well, wonder no more. In this exciting and informative new book, Science You Can Eat, you will find all these answers and more!

Author, Stefan Gates, is a well known television presenter in the UK who has written many books and presented many programs on science and food. In his clear and humorous style, readers can learn fun facts and try some of the experiments at home to prove or disprove their scientific hypotheses.

Sections on unusual foods, cooking without heat and exploding foods are particularly unique. The design, photography and illustrations ensure this book is constantly engaging, with appeal to children mostly aged 8-12, but also to anyone who loves science and food, two of the best things in the world.
