I Can Cook from the Garden
By Sally Brown, Kate Morris, and Martyn Cox
Follow-on to the hugely popular i can cook and reflecting the programme's new direction and focus on recipes using ingredients children pick in the i can cook garden and elsewhere. With a balance of 40% gardening and 60% cookery, this book is right on trend with the DIY gardening and cooking movement. The book stands alone as an excellent, fun introduction to get kids cooking and gardening - and helps them learn to eat well.
Series 3 of the popular CBeebies' series i can cook will increasingly connect children with where their food comes from. Kids learn how to grow and cook food through focused recipe features - the key ingredients are spotlighted with interesting facts that allow the children to discover where and how that item grows. This book is first and foremost a recipe book structured around ingredients and how to grow them. It's all about children doing the cooking themselves - and having lots of fun in the process. And cooking is even more fun when children know where ingredients come from, and have even grown some of them themselves. So included here are instructions for growing simple vegetables and herbs, many of which just need small pots and window boxes, along with ideas for creative garden projects, from mobiles to decorated containers. The delicious recipes have been created specially so they can be made with little or no adult help, with clear step-by-step photographs showing what to do at key points in the recipe.
