Inspire your students and develop their knowledge of good practice and theory, with a textbook that fully links creativity and practical skills to underpinning knowledge.
Real understanding requires more than simply ticking off theory listed in the specification. Students need to know how and where to apply it, and understand why.
- Written specifically for Food Technology, rather than adapted from a generic Design and Technology template
- Direct links between theory and its application, helping students to truly grasp underpinning knowledge and improve their written paper grades
- Exciting exemplars of innovative and interesting projects are analysed and linked to the AQA specification
