At a time when people are taking an interest in the provenance of their food and are keen to make their weekly budget go further, there has been a rise in the number of vegetable patches. So there has never been a better time to teach kids about the benefits of growing and cooking with their own fruit and vegetables. Grow It, Cook it with Kids is a beautifully photographed guide aimed at getting children into the garden, sowing seeds, looking after their plants, and showing them how and when to harvest their produce. There are chapters on Herbs & Leaves; Potatoes, Carrots, & Onions; Zucchini & Tomatoes; Peas & Beans; and Raspberries & Strawberries. There's nothing better or more rewarding for a child than enjoying the freshest produce that they've grown and tended to themselves in their own back yard they'll be full of pride when they can make potato cakes, zucchini stir-fry, creamy spinach pasta, and strawberry cupcakes--all with the minimum help from Mom or Dad. This delightful book by Amanda Grant is in tune with the current passion for grow-your-own produce and encourages children to learn about the joys of gardening and cooking.
