"...points in a new direction going beyond cookies and other treats to teach children to cook main courses and side dishes." ----The New York Times
"The joy of food is in its diversity. In The 2nd International Cookbook for Kids, Chef Matthew Locricchio continues his exploration of the world's great cuisines, guiding us on a hands-on journey filled with the exotic flavors of India, Greece, Thailand, and Brazil. He opens our eyes to the rich variety of these world-class cuisines and teaches us that there is one place where everyone comes together - the dinner table." ----Chef Frank Brigtsen, Brigtsen's Restaurant, New Orleans, Louisiana
"Matthew Locricchio's second book for children, "The 2nd International Cookbook for Kids" (Marshall Cavendish. $18.99) is a great way to introduce budding chefs to international foods, by which I don't mean shrimp rolls and cannelloni. It's a spiral-bound, colorful and cheerful book with recipes for soups, noodles, and desserts - all kids' faves, along with some interesting main courses, by way of Thailand, Greece and Brazil.
You may not tempt your picky eater with lamb curry or fish and shrimp stew, but even the choosiest kids will find some of the other dishes irresistible. Especially when they help make them, which is why embarking on a cooking session to whip up chapati (Indian bread), coconut rice (from Thailand) or wonderful chicken and feta cheese pie, from Greece, is a great idea. All the recipes contain extremely detailed instructions and, thankfully, short ingredient lists. If you re looking for a fun present for a beginning chef, this is a great one to check out." --Rosemary Black, New York Daily News Blog
"Chef Matthew Locricchio's follow-up book to his The International Cookbook for Kids pulls together 60 classic kid-tested recipes from Greece, Brazil, Thailand and India. The easy-to-follow format of the recipes makes this a great workbook for older children and teens with ambitious palates." ----Orlando Sentinel
Both delightful and colorful, Matthew Locricchio's latest cookbook is a gem for children 10 years and older. His clear and concise recipes help budding chefs create dishes with international flare and flavor. Not only does Matthew educate young cooks, he also opens their eyes to foods from around the world. --Cindy Sanchez, MomsMenu.com

This is a great book for both kids and adults.
There are only 3 or 4 countries included in the book.
Some of the recipes look like things my kids would like, but I was hoping for a lot more different kinds of food.
For me, some of the steps are too detailed-- great for kids who are cooking completely on their own, however, a little cumbersome for adults who are helping or overseeing. There are some recipes that are quite complex, but others are simple enough for him to do mostly on his own. We have already used it for several recipes and all have turned out well.
Several recipes are bases for other recipes (chicken stock, red curry). It is a great cookbook and he really enjoys it, which is the important part.
