Mission:Explore Food

Mission:Explore Food is the latest in a series of award-winning books and websites by The Geography Collective that help people to explore and see the world in new ways.

The activity cookbook challenges children to go cannibal, cook in acid, make chocolate poos (including nuts and sweetcorn), ask the Queen for a swan and work out the best way to slaughter a lamb. Mission:Explore Food is a 'guerrilla geography' book that has been created to tantalise children's taste for adventure and tests their understanding not only of where their food is from, but also of where it goes once they've finished eating.

Children who complete missions from the book can visit the Mission:Explore website to be rewarded with points and badges for their efforts.
