Easy Main Dishes From Around the World

by Heather Alexander

Part of a Series: Easy Cookbooks for Kids.

From sweet and sour shrimp from China to shepherd’s pie from the United Kingdom, the recipes in this book will have young readers’ mouths watering. With colorful backgrounds, a clean design, and maps of each featured country, this fun volume delivers information along with each recipe. “Did You Know?” sidebars offer interesting morsels (“In Austria, wiener schnitzel is always served with a slice of lemon on top.”), while “Cook’s Tip” sidebars provide great advice, such as soaking wood skewers in water before making beef or chicken satay. A nutrition food pyramid and definitions of cooking terms make this book particularly useful for budding chefs. The back matter includes further reading, recommended Web sites, and an index.
