With foods like hummus and Pad Thai becoming as common as meatloaf and apple pie, it’s no surprise that
international foods are hotter than ever. Kids today are growing up in an increasingly multicultural world, and with
Around the World: An International Cookbook for Children, they can eat like it, too!
While cooking these traditional cuisines, kids also learn about the countries they’re from: how a tandoor oven works,
what smorgasbord really means, and how to make a croque monsieur into a croque madame. Together with DK’s fun
and innovative visual style, the information and recipes in this unique cookbook tie in beautifully with school
curriculum and make it an essential part of every young foodie’s library.
