Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Clare Crespo's world of demented and delightful culinary creations, where what you see is definitely not what you get. Illustrated with vivid and slyly hilarious photographs, The Secret Life of Food introduces parents and children to forty-six unbelievable recipes that turn familiar, easy-to-make dishes into wondrous imitations of plants, animals, common household objects, and even human body parts (the ultimate Halloween gross-out!). A hip gift book perfect for young families, The Secret Life of Food shows these and many more whimsical, ingeniously disguised creations. Parents will have as much fun as their children making these playful dishes, or simply leafing through this charming, disarming collection.

Synopsis:

This astounding collection of full-color photographs depict food masquerading as everyday items found in the home. Ideal as a gift book, this stunning collection includes easy-to-follow recipes for the book's subjects, such as Shirt-and-Pants Cake, Monkey Pops, Anatomical Heart Cookies, and Sushi Cupcakes.

Synopsis:

Welcome to The Secret Life of Food, where your food is actually masquerading as ordinary objects found in and around your home. This stunning gift book, overflowing with lush photography, shows us a new side of the kitchen, where what you see is definitely not what you get! Easy-to-follow recipes turn potatoes and string beans into stylish flip-flops. Sushi cupcakes are served with chopsticks, but they are really tasty morsels topped with coconut icing wrapped in green fruit roll-ups. And in the gorgeous Jell-O aquarium swims a chewy Swedish fish.

Parents will have as much fun as their children creating these culinary masterpieces.
