"Amazing resource for my classroom!"
5 stars"

As a primary teacher, I'm always looking for new ideas to help my students to learn about science concepts. This book is amazing, not only is it filled with fun experiments that the students love to do, but it also has an easy to understand explanation section that I can use to help me explain the concepts to my kids. I don't have a background in science but with this book I feel confident to set up experiments which allow the students to discover. The ingredients are really cheap and easily available from the supermarket which also helps!

"Great book with so much learning!"
5 stars"

I bought this book for my Grandchildren as they were coming to stay and it resulted in hours of fun. The recipes were easy to follow and each one taught a different science concept. I already had all of the ingredients in my cupboard so we could do everything straight away. Great book and so easy to follow!

"My kids loved this book!"
5 stars"

In an age where I am always trying to get my kids to spend less time looking at their screens, this book came to save the day! From the moment it arrived, my kids were captivated. Building catapults, making ice cream, stacking sugar solution they didn't even pick up their tablets once as they were too busy having fun in the kitchen. I highly reccomend this book for parents who are trying to balance fun with education, as by the end of the day my two were spouting off all sorts of science facts that they had learned, while also eating the evidence. We only got through 4 experiments so there are plenty more to try but for our first weekend we think this book is amazing!


The Kitchen Science Cookbook is a beautiful, lovingly crafted recipe book with a twist — each recipe is a science experiment that you can do at home with your family, using easy-to-find ingredients you’ll likely already have in your pantry.

If you can follow a recipe, you can explore science! The Kitchen Science Cookbook presents
science in a way that is easy to follow, familiar and widely accessible. The book seeks to enable families to enjoy exploring science at home together.

Contains 50 science experiments, suitable for young scientists from 3–15. Each experiment has been rigorously tested by a community of 2000 worldwide to ensure ease of understanding and ready availability of ingredients.

Each experiment is set out just as you would expect a recipe to be presented in a cookbook.
Ingredients, equipment and easy-to-follow instructions make scientific exploration a pleasure. Each experiment also has a clear explanation of the science involved, and suggests paths for further exploration.

Carefully designed to make the perfect gift, and a treasured book. The Kitchen Science
Cookbook is beautifully presented as a hardcover recipe book. Every recipe is accompanied by a beautiful full-page photograph.
