Hands up who had a scratch and sniff T-shirt in the ‘80s? I did! Both fun and fabulously smelly, scratch and sniff products have come full circle with the launch of the first interactive scent-infused cookbook for kids by Peninsula innovators Glenn and Amy Hendriks.

The Hendriks’ first foray into the world of sniff and whiff products was their successful children’s interactive Smellies Brands range about five years ago that was found in high-end department stores all over the world. They are now concentrating on ‘smelly’ books and have recently come up with a ripper of a fun-fuelled and motivational tool inspiring young cooks to get in the kitchen and learn where their produce comes from. They are focused on a scratch ‘n’ smell book range after discovering new technology that is amazingly lifelike.

Amy explains. “The recipes in this book are simple, easy to follow and appealing for children from the ages of six years and upwards to cook with minimal adult supervision.  We know some little tummies don’t like certain foods so we have also included some recipes that are free from a variety of common allergens, and have some vegetarian and vegan options too. We are aware that cooking helps children form a positive connection with fresh foods like fruit and vegetables, which are the foundation for good nutrition.” They are also working with Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to promote the new Mornington Peninsula Produce brand and Peninsula farm gates.

Using the latest scent application technology, the Scratch & Smell Kids Cookbook brings all your favourite smells to life at the touch of a finger. Garlic, mint, coconut, raspberry, honey and pineapple jump from the page as your child navigates this premium, high-end spiral-bound cookbook that uncovers some of the best Mornington Peninsula produce. There’s also “Cook Happy, Eat Local” markings to find and the smells just keep giving – they never wear out!

Got an itch to get cooking? Scratch it with Glenn and Amy Hendriks’ Fun & Fabulous Scratch & Smell Kids Cookbook and breathe in the benefits that learning to cook from a young age can bring. Yes?
