Editorial Reviews

Horn Book Guide
This book presents "classic international recipes" from Greece, India, Thailand, and Brazil, each in a challenging yet teen-friendly step-by-step sequence. The book is best for patient chefs with kitchen experience and adventurous appetites. Informative sidebars provide facts about the recipes and cultures. Useful glossaries of ingredients, equipment, and techniques are appended.
Tara Parker-Pope
Of course, there have long been cookbooks aimed at children. But this batch (all the titles here are from this year) is not only unusually large, but also points in a new direction — going beyond cookies and other treats to teach children to cook main courses and side dishes, like roast chicken and brisket... ‘The new books coming out speak to parent and child together and the fact that cooking is much more part of family life,' added Ms. Bloomfield, of St. Paul, a former middle-school teacher who now teaches children's cooking classes. ‘Roast chicken is not the kind of thing that comes to top of mind when you think of a kids' cookbook.'...New cookbooks along these lines include "Paula Deen's My First Cookbook" (Simon & Schuster); "The Second International Cookbook for Kids" by Matthew Locricchio (Marshall Cavendish); "Grow It, Cook It" (DK Publishing); and "Yum-o! The Family Cookbook" by the omnipresent Rachael Ray (Clarkson Potter).

A new international cookbook for kids

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.

    Good Cookbook and not just for Kids

    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!
