What's Cooking?

A whimsical read-aloud of delicious answers to ridiculous questions about what can - and cannot - be done in the kitchen! Food critic and author Joshua David Stein tackles the world of cookery with his signature quirk and charm. From the practical ("Can I fry a scoop of gelato?") to the playful ("Do frozen peas grow on frozen trees?"), each vignette features an engaging question and a satisfying reveal, all revolving around the preparation of food. The simple yet sophisticated hand-drawings by Julia Rothman provide authenticity and a balance of seriousness to the silliness at hand. Incorporating humor, word play, logic and illogic, foreign foods, and even some cookbook vocabulary, this read-aloud book offers children facts to share and maybe even the impetus to get involved in the kitchen!

On Can I Eat That? by Joshua David Stein and Julia Rothman, Phaidon "It's a book for both dubious and curious eaters that also cleverly explores the foibles of the English language. Illustrations by Julia Rothman entertain the kids while unexpected turns of phrase keep adults guessing" -Food52 "Tasty... Stein's clever words and tight phrasing are put to good effect alongside Rothman's colourful illustrations" -West Weekend magazine
