There are lots of great recipes included throughout that show the various chemistry process. A few examples: Whipped Creamsicle Topping, Cherry Dream Cheese, and Thanksgiving Turkey. The recipes are easy to follow and have a complete list of ingredients and supplies needed. There are also black and white photographs to show you each step.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in finding out WHY something works in the kitchen the way it does. It's written in a way that a non-scientific person can follow along with out a problem but is in depth enough that someone with a science background won't be bored or feel talked down to.
There are several recipes that use alcohol so all the experiments won't work with children but much of the book would work well in a high school science home school curriculum. Definitely an interesting read.
