Incredible resource for families
Just recently got this book and I am in love! Beautiful pictures and info about different countries. The pictures are vibrant, full color photographs, and show off different information about parts of the world, types of produce/ingredients, etc. The directions seem pretty simple and straightforward for my 7-year-old to do, with some help. I hope to include this in our homeschool curriculum for shopping, measuring, geography and cooking skills. I am pretty sure this will be a staple book in our home for years to come!

Gorgeous & Fun
I have an 8-year-old who loves cooking and baking, and a 5-year-old who enjoys helping in the kitchen. This book is appealing to kids, and has easy recipes they can pull off while feeling like a top-level chef. I've even used this cookbook when an online recipe I was going to use fell through.
I will say that the directions aren't as easy to follow as I think they should be; the print is fairly small and there are multiple steps in a paragraph format. It helps with reading skills, though, so there's a positive!
This book is colorful and attractive and I love that it lays flat on the counter. It's also durable (even the pages) against cooking splatters or being knocked on the floor. Cooking and food is such a great way to explore other cultures--or your own!
