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 cakes are served with chopsticks, but they are really tasty morsels topped with coconut icing wrapped in green fruit roll-ups. And gorgeous Jell-O aquarium swims a chewy Swedish fish.
Parents will have as much fun as their children creating these culinary masterpieces.
