Geography, math, and science are all part of the learning experience of preparing this book's offering of over fifty recipes from places as far-flung as China (Sesame Noodles), Africa (Juicy Jollof Rice), Mexico (Tortilla Soup), and Lebanon (Tabbouleh). Tools, cooking methods, and ingredients are all shown in photos in addition to being described. Key vocabulary words round out this fun lesson. Age eight to twelve.

SLJ Reviews 2013 August

Gr 3–6—This culinary tour is informative and fun, and includes tasty recipes from Mexico, France, Italy, Africa, the Middle East, China, and Japan. Cooking basics, tools, and terms precede the body of international recipes. Attractive, full-color photos show the steps involved and the finished dishes. Maps display the featured regions, and "The Coolest Ingredients" pages highlight common and specialized items found in the recipes. This appealing introductory guidebook to global cuisine earns a place next to Deanna F. Cook and Michael P. Kline's The Kid's Multicultural Cookbook (Williamson, 1995) and Matthew Locricchio's The 2nd International Cookbook for Kids (Marshall Cavendish, 2008). Children will relate to the easy-to-read instructions as well as the photos of their peers from around the world.—Kathryn Diman, Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Bernard, ME
