The Children's World Cookbook is by far one of my favorites that Usborne has to offer. This has provided a great avenue for me to teach my kids about foods from various countries. While the Olympics are in progress I am letting the kids choose a different recipe from a country they are becoming familiar with during these Olympics. Tonight we made the Beef Stroganoff from Russia.
The kids are enjoying learning a little about each country and making a dish from that country too. The recipes are shown with a picture of the finished dish along with step-by-step instructions, so your kids are more than able to help you. Older kids can follow easily and cook dinner for you on their own. We'd all like that, wouldn't we!
One of the things I love about this book is that it covers other topics than just recipes. Twenty seven different countries or continents are covered. It even has a section on fruits of the world, vegetables of the world, breads of the world (which even explains about the different grains), cheeses of the world, and cakes and pastries of the world. It will even take your family through Italian delicatessans, Mexican fruit markets, and Thailand's floating markets.
The Children's World Cookbook is one of Usborne's internet-linked books which means it contains links to kid approved sites so your children can learn even more on the topics associated with this book. One of the links takes you on a sightseeing trip through Russia.
