Get cooking with Alice & Megan!
Alice and Megan are writing a cookbook. But Alice is not the world's the greatest cook … so could it be a recipe for disaster? Well, not with Megan's help - as well as advice (whether the girls want it or not!) from Megan's mum, little sister Rosie, Miss Leonard, the Home Economics Teacher …
This fun-filled cookbook is packed with brilliant recipes. Why not wake up to French toast and tropical smoothies? Or go to school with raspberry muffins and pasta salad? Or snack on smores and quesadillas? Or impress your friends with home-made burgers followed by ice cream with toffee sauce? All this and more included!
Brilliant Breakfasts . Lucky Lunchboxes . Super Snacks . Marvellous Main Courses . Delicious Desserts . Cakes & Cookies.

From what I remember of the Alice and Megan series, both girls were more enthusiastic than expert in the cookery department and I was therefore intrigued to find out what they might include in ‘their’ cookbook
One of the most exciting cookbooks to have hit the shelves from Ireland last year was Judi Curtin’s Alice and Megan’s Cookbook ... In the great tradition of so many children’s books, Judi Curtin writes vividly about the wonders of food - but this time readers can bring these treats to life ... cheerful and practical tone ... The instructions are clear and easy to follow.
