Kids Multicultural CookbookStars: ***1/2

I was looking for another cookbook to review for the Soup’s On challenge and I’ve found I like kids cookbooks so I thought I’d try this out.

After an initial section on cooking basics you’ll find the recipes divided by continent. There are 6 countries for Asia, 13 for Europe, 10 for Africa and Middle East, 9 for The Americas (including US and Canada) and 3 for the South Pacific.

For each recipe you’ll find a recipe rating that tells you how hard the recipe is, some background info, a list of ingredients and instructions and some fun facts or creative cook ideas.

There are no photographs, only drawings and they are all black and white. There are also “Kids Can” bits, but not on every page, that show or talk about real kids from that country.

It’s a good starter cookbook if you are teaching/learning about a certain country and it’s in here, you could try a recipe out. It could have been improved upon though with photographs, color illustrations and more countries.

The countries featured are: Indonesia, Thailand, India, China, Nepal, Japan, Switzerland, Italy, Ireland, Germany, Scotland, England, France, Russia, Hungary, The Netherlands, Sweden, Greece, Tunisia, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Ghana, Liberia, Israel, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Caribbean Islands, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and The Society Islands.
