Our founder, Amber Stott wrote a book! Food Anatomy Activities
for Kids is like traveling with a passport through the history of
food: we explore fruits, veggies, nuts, and grains–the foods
early gatherers would have eaten. In every chapter, kids take
their learning into the kitchen to create experiments you can
Readers will understand the science behind our food: parts
of a plant, how rice grows, the anatomy of an egg–and how whites
and yolks are used for different purposes in cooking.
From osmosis to emulsions, it’s a delicious journey!
This book was created during a crisis, when cooking has never
been more important. We want kids and families everywhere to
become more confident in the kitchen. This book allows us to
reach children beyond our Sacramento classrooms. Food Anatomy
Activities for Kids will bring a sense of exploration and
joy to young readers.
