Matthew Locricchio's second book for children, "The 2nd International Cookbook for Kids" (Marshall Cavendish. $18.99) is a great way to introduce budding chefs to international foods, by which I don't mean shrimp rolls and cannelloni. It's a spiral-bound, colorful and cheerful book with recipes for soups, noodles, and desserts - all kids' faves, along with some interesting main courses, by way of Thailand, Greece and Brazil.
You may not tempt your picky eater with lamb curry or fish and shrimp stew, but even the choosiest kids will find some of the other dishes irresistible. Especially when they help make them, which is why embarking on a cooking session to whip up chapati (Indian bread), coconut rice (from Thailand) or wonderful chicken and feta cheese pie, from Greece, is a great idea. All the recipes contain extremely detailed instructions and, thankfully, short ingredient lists. If you're looking for a fun present for a beginning chef, this is a great one to check out.

My wife bought this for herself after she looked through it. She has cooked a couple of very good meals. My favorite was skewered chicken with a peanut sauce. Very tasty!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
