Australian and New Zealand Food and Drink

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-- These two books feature the food customs of two continents, but also include concise surveys of the regions' climates, geography, ethnic groups, cultures, and histories. Well organized and loaded with fascinating facts and attractive color photographs, they will provide middle-graders with a viable alternative to encyclopedias, which usually give short shrift to this topic. Both books describe food production, transportation and marketing, cuisine for special occasions, and current food trends. While they include some recipes for native dishes, they are most useful as source material on regional food specialties and practices. Students needing an African cookbook would be better served by Montgomery and Chapman's Cooking the African Way (Lerner, 1987), which contains twice as many recipes, but there is no parallel resource on Australian food. Librarians should give both volumes first-purchase consideration. --Merilyn S. Burrington, formerly at Vergennes Union High School, VT
