Levar Burton introduces young viewers to illustrated readings of children's literature and explores their related subjects - in 16 seasons between 1983 and 2015! In this 1996 episode, LeVar and a friend say following recipes and cooking foods are very much like science experiments. They work on recipes which include lasagna made with rice, a marinara sauce, and apple raisin muffins. Helen Mirren reads How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, a tale of a lady who goes to elaborate lengths to get all the ingredients to make a pie after she finds her local grocery store closed.
