Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For those ready to don an apron, the spiral-bound The International Cookbook for Kids by Matthew Locricchio, photos by Jack McConnell, starts off with safety tips for the kitchen, then dives right into soups such as "Sopa de Tortilla" followed by Salade Nicoise and classics like roast chicken and spaghetti and meatballs, topped off with an array of desserts. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Chef Locricchio provides a rich selection of classic recipes from the "big four" culinary traditions of the world—France, Italy, China, and Mexico. He emphasizes fresh organic ingredients and takes no shortcuts. There are wonderful recipes in this cookbook, but the execution of them is not for the faint-hearted chef. The word "kids" in the title is a misnomer; the recipes are really geared toward teenagers. The recipe for Quiche Lorraine calls for either a frozen 9-inch pie shell or the cook's "favorite recipe pie crust," but no ingredients are listed to make one, and how many kids have a favorite pie crust recipe? There are no pictures or diagrams for making the crust and anyone who has ever struggled with making pie crust from scratch knows it is not that simple. The food photography is stunning. The format includes a variety of typefaces and background colors which make the cooking tips stand out. The book's spiral binding is practical in the kitchen. Interesting historical tidbits introduce the recipes. While the book might provide language teachers with ideas for cultural culinary celebrations in class, many recipes are not easily transported. Safety tips are useful and are not the obvious, and helpful lists of essential ingredients and utensils are included. Locricchio's banter is lively and includes kid-friendly analogies like using a baseball diamond to explain how to fold eggrolls. Those looking for challenging make-from-scratch classical cookery will find much inspiration in this book. 2004, Marshall Cavendish, Ages 12 up.
