Thanks to all the teachers that gave us the thumbs up about whether to buy Food Science You Can Eat on 18/7/16!
The question - Has anyone bought the Jenny Ridgwell's Food Science You Can Eat book and is it worth it?
It's on our website for £40 hard copy or £45 download. You can buy from Amazon for £50.
Here are some of the views:
We have as needed some inspiration for new ideas. JB
Yes, and yes! SB and RB
Yes and yes from me too! KM
Yes. Did cake experiment last week and was brilliant, helping students understand functions of ingredients. Definitely worth the £ MC
Honestly. If you are old school you'll already know it / have it in some other form JB
Just received today, don't know yet it seems expensive for what you get. I found an old 1995 DT food book today as well, guess what, it was very similar to the GCSE investigation style AL
The old food facts book has lots of experiments in.WW
Yes and yes - easy to follow and science explanations are good CP
I do like the way they link the Science with recipes DS
Mine arrived today. Lovey layout,easy to read, science clearly explained. I like it a lot already. MH
Yes and yes! SC
Definitely worth the money. It's clear, well explained, gives examples and can be photocopied or printed out for use in lessons. SO
Download is ready and the book is too.
Here are some reviews
I think it has a good lay out, suggestion of experiments for teacher &/or class to do, then sample recipes that use the process. J.O.
It is really good! K.L.
Sooooo excited look what I got in the post from the fantastic Jenny Ridgwell!!! Can't wait to sit down with a drink and read through this tonight... review to follow! J.M.
I really like it and think it's well worth the money. NS
I bought it the day it came out and haven't looked back. Jenny Ridgwell books are always amazing in my humble opinion. MS
I did wonder if £40 was a bit steep when ordering, but now I have it in front of me I think it's worth every penny. 71 pages of clearly explained food science covering the whole GCSE spec. and it can be photocopied in school MP
Just got my copy too thanks to Joseph Mann It really is a great resource. Only just flipped through it but looking really good Jenny. Simon Gray
