Make Delicious Foods from Many Lands and Discover Something about Different Culture

What do kids in Jamaica eat for breakfast? How can you make a delicious loaf of challah bread? Who created the first chocolate chip cookie? Let your curiosity--and appetite--run wild while you learn how to make scrumptious delicacies from cultures across the globe.

Kids Around the World Cook! takes you on a taste-bud-tingling tour to lands far and near with a fun assortment of trivia and lots of safe and easy-to-make recipes. Begin your meal in Ethiopia, as you sample the thin, pancake-shaped bread called injera, then take off to Japan, where you can make the mouthwatering traditional dinner called kushiyaki. Visit India on a hot summer day and enjoy the yummy taste of lassi, a sweet yogurt drink, and finish off your meal in Egypt with baklawa, a flaky pastry made with nuts, coconut, and butter.

Kids Around the World Cook! is a fabulous blend of fascinating facts and delicious recipes. Impress your family and friends and, best of all, sample all of the tasty results of your exciting excursions.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-A collection of recipes for beverages, grains, soups and starters, main courses, and sweets from 22 countries. Each one has been tested by fourth-grade students and is clearly written. Readers are directed to find the few special ingredients required at specialty shops or on Web sites. Unfortunately, they must wade through a morass of fragmentary information to find these recipes. For example, on the four pages devoted to black bean soup, there is one sentence about its history, two about a man in ancient Rome who made soup, two paragraphs about bean soups in three different countries (with their names and pronunciations), a recipe for black bean soup from Cuba, two sentences about various beans of the world, and four describing chili con carne, sans recipe. Black-and-white line drawings and poorly rendered photos appear throughout. Deanna Cook's The Kids' Multicultural Cookbook (Williamson, 1995) is more inviting. For a more complete treatment of a single country, try the wonderful "Easy Menu Ethnic Cookbooks" series (Lerner).-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME (c) Copyright 2010.
