Incr-Edible Science at Angelicscalliwags

incredible science

This is a home made curriculum we have done on and off for the past few years.  I add to it as and when we come upon suitable topics in our other areas of study.  No doubt it will expand over the next few years.  As the title suggests, during our Incr-Edible science we learn about the science of food and drink.  I started this because one of my daughters loves to cook and I thought it might be helpful if she ever made her future in the cooking industry  As it turns out we all enjoy this type of science, primarily because there tends to be a food reward at the end!

This post includes all the Incr-Edible posts I have ever written (so far), all in one place.
