Around the World with the Ingreedies
A Taste Adventure
Zoë Bather, Joe Sharpe and Chris Dickason
Laurence King Publishing

The Ingreedies will teach kids how to:
• Be inventive with food
• Explore and celebrate world cuisine
• Understand flavour combinations
• Cook dishes from around the world from scratch
Many parents know it can be a struggle to get kids to eat healthy, unprocessed food, particularly fussy kids. Married couple and graphic designers Zoë Bather and Joe Sharpe found this with their own picky kids but found huge success when they made food fun, experimental and got their kids involved in the whole process from recipe selection and picking ingredients to prepping and cooking meals.
And so ‘The Ingreedies’ were born, a colourful band of food explorers who teach kids all about food from around the world, from the explosive chillies of Mexico to the magical spices of India. Drawing on the culture, history, science and geography behind our food, Around the World with the Ingreedies is an imaginative and inspiring cookbook adventure that will get kids excited about mealtimes and teach them about food from around the world, how it has evolved and how to cook it.
The creators, Zoë and Joe said: “this book was born of the same frustrations many parents encounter – inspiration for what to cook and how to achieve clean plates. Through trial and error with our own kids, we’ve created recipes the whole family can cook and enjoy together. We want kids to devour the stories and facts in the book, and in turn spark an interest in the exotic recipes.”
The book features recipes that children can get involved with cooking and will love to eat, including Chinese Dan Dan noodles, Moroccan chicken stew, Italian pizza, French Tarte Tatin and many more. This adventure through food will tantalise childrens’ taste buds and inspire adventures in the kitchen and is great for fans of Richard Scarry and Tintin.
