Make Delicious Foods from Many Lands and Discover Something about Different Culture<br> <br> What do kids in Jamaica eat for breakfast? How can you make a delicious loaf of challah bread? Who created the first chocolate chip cookie? Let your curiosity--and appetite--run wild while you learn how to make scrumptious delicacies from cultures across the globe.<br> <br> Kids Around the World Cook! takes you on a taste-bud-tingling tour to lands far and near with a fun assortment of trivia and lots of safe and easy-to-make recipes. Begin your meal in Ethiopia, as you sample the thin, pancake-shaped bread called injera, then take off to Japan, where you can make the mouthwatering traditional dinner called kushiyaki. Visit India on a hot summer day and enjoy the yummy taste of lassi, a sweet yogurt drink, and finish off your meal in Egypt with baklawa, a flaky pastry made with nuts, coconut, and butter.<br> <br> Kids Around the World Cook! is a fabulous blend of fascinating facts and delicious recipes. Impress your family and friends and, best of all, sample all of the tasty results of your exciting excursions.

This cookbook for recipes from around the world chooses neither the best foods nor the best recipes, but does include some odd and interesting information about the history of what we eat. Dividing the text into chapters on beverages, grains, soups and starters, main courses, and deserts, the author includes a section on kitchen safety and provides brief information on special ingredients. Braman (Kids Around the World Create. Not reviewed), is a former teacher, who states she has tested the recipes with fourth graders and simplified recipes for young cooks. Maybe, but Baklawa (Egyptian phyllo with ground nuts and coconut) and Injera (Ethiopian flat bread) are not usually considered starter recipes. Some information given is neither safe nor accurate. She suggests cooking bratwurst in a pan over medium heat till lightly brown. Gourmet magazine recommends simmering brats for twenty minutes before grilling, or pan browning. Undercooked sausages are NOT SAFE. Elsewhere, she describes New York egg creams, as `a combination of eggs, cream, chocolate syrup and soda.` Most New Yorkers will tell you egg creams have neither eggs nor cream. The format is distracting for cooks, since the author introduces a type of food, then gives some food history from other times and cultures, lists ingredients for a specific recipe, gives the step-by-step procedure, and then introduces a food from still another culture. Line drawings and photographs appear throughout. Some specialized cooking terms are defined in the glossary. Index was not seen. An additional purchase where multicultural materials are in heavy demand. (Nonfiction 10-12) (Kirkus Reviews)
