Starting From Scratch: What You Should Know about Food and Cooking
by Sarah Elton (Author) and Jeff Kulak (Illustrator)
Booktalk: This book is NOT a cookbook, it’s a book about the science of food–how it works, why it works, and what you need to know to make the kitchen your playground.
There are all sorts of incredible things that happen to food when we prepare it. We use chemical reactions to transition ingredients from one state to another, such a turning cream into ice cream. We even use little critters like bacteria and yeast to transform what nature has given us into the stuff we put into our mouths.
