Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Ice cream was invented in China around 2000 BCE. Delicacies like roasted ants are eaten in some parts of Colombia. Mendez offers up such tantalizing facts to introduce featured recipes from respective countries in this delightful procession of international culinary dishes. Occasional proverbs, such as the adage from Mexico "Conversation is food for the soul" or the Filipino aphorism "Don't empty the water jar until the rain falls," are included in the prelude to each highlighted recipe as are a flag and map showing the region where the recipe originated. Wonderful color photos resonate with a National Geographic vibe as they portray faces, places, and foods from across the globe. Myriad international cookbooks for kids have some great recipes, but few provide such a wealth of eclectic information to enhance the cultural aspects of food in addition to providing safety tips, tasty tips, and national facts. A foreword by famed chef Ferran Adrià sets the tone for this serious approach to fun when learning to cook well-loved foods. One World Kids Cookbook is a suitable literary appetizer for global nutrition or cultural studies.—Kathryn Diman, Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Bernard, ME
Kirkus Reviews
International recipes for families interested in cooking a variety of world cuisines together. This colorful, amply illustrated cookbook emphasizes the educational, nutritional and social benefits of cooking with children, offering 19 recipes from as many nations. The book devotes four pages to each recipe and country, along with enriching notes on food and cultural facts. The country's flag is depicted with a map locating the country, followed by a double-page spread documenting how to create each recipe. The emphasis here is on fun, collaboration, invention and food as an engaging art rather than exact science; "tasty tips" following recipes invite children to try variations (which always include a vegetarian option). Dishes include the familiar (Mexican fajitas, kebabs from Iran) along with the more adventurous (Brazilian salmon stew, Australian Fish parcel with damper bread). Recipes feel approachable—most are cooked atop the stove, with the most high-tech gadget required being an immersion blender for creaming soup. Ingredients are laid out clearly, with equivalent temperatures and metric measurements—but not always presented in order of use. Though cooking time for meat is mentioned, the more reliable internal temperature might be preferable ("fry until cooked" could result in underdone meat). Overall, though, this cookbook offers complex, authentic international flavors without overcomplicating the process, and the result is something you'd really enjoy having for dinner. A deliciously engaging fusion of cookbook and cultural lesson. (Nonfiction. 8 & up)
