Have you ever eaten a potato ghost? A cantaloupe canoe? A banana snake or a star biscuit? With Cooking Art, children will create edible masterpieces. And they will love serving these delicious beverages, salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts to friends and family. Make a whole theme-related meal or party! Child-readable icons make choosing recipes and following steps easily.

Cooking Art combines the familiar area of art exploration with the fascinating world of cooking and all its wondrous tools, tastes and outcomes. This book offers a wonderful opportunity for children to become comfortable and capable in the kitchen — with adult help and assistance — using exploration, discovery, creativity, and following simple directions to create uniquely designed, edible art. Each recipe allows ample room for cooking artists to explore and create in their own special, unique ways. The recipes in Cooking Art have lots of room for personal choices in foods selected, food design and food presentation. Although steps in the recipes should be followed, the outcome of each recipe can be completely different from one cooking artist to the next. The art process is of primary importance in Cooking Art. The product is the delicious reward for exploring the creative possibilities of cooking.
