Grade 5 Up - A tempting buffet of recipes for classic dishes from "the big four" of world cooking: Italy, France, China, and Mexico. Locricchio promotes cooking as teamwork involving family and friends in an enjoyable experience. The dishes chosen involve basic culinary techniques that are not always simple but often used in all types of cooking. A list of safety tips appears at the beginning of the book, but discussion of essential ingredients, cooking terms, and equipment is, unfortunately, placed at the end. Everything, including soup stock, is made from scratch, with an emphasis on fresh ingredients and the resulting superior flavor. Each recipe is introduced briefly with its cultural context. Ingredients and directions are clearly written, with all cutting, chopping, and other preparation steps listed before the actual cooking begins. A bright color photograph of each dish is included. A special section devoted to "A Taco Party" begins with directions for making tacos (including frying tortillas), and proceeds through salsas, tostadas, guacamole, picadillo, carnitas, enchiladas, and beans. Several dishes involve handling dried or fresh chiles, but safety instructions for wearing gloves and taking other precautions aren't included until the end of this section. Overall, this is a strong collection of popular dishes attractively presented. More recipes for more international cuisines are included in the "Easy Menu Ethnic Cookbooks" series (Lerner), which includes Helga Parnell's Cooking the South American Way (1991). - Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS

We also have dietary issues (Celiacs and lactose allergy) and we are able to substitute if needed and the meals still taste great! We also never have leftovers as everyone goes back for seconds.
I HIGHLY recommend this book to any new chef. I cannot wait to pickup the 2nd edition once it's available.
Tonight she made a pork and potato dish all on her own (my 19yr old supervised) and did an amazing job.
Locricchio does a bang-up job of introducing youngsters to the Big 4 cuisines of the world (French, Italian, Chinese & Mexican) while teaching children excellent foundation skills that will last them their entire lives. You won't find canned broth or bouillon cubes in The International Cookbook for Kids. Locricchio teaches them to make a variety of base stocks from scratch. You will find no mixes and no prepared foods here, just real food for real kids, heavy on the veggies and very light on the snack material.
Emeril ranges further afield and includes foods from most regions of the world. He emphasizes good taste and uses a variety of cooking techniques. Nearly all of Emeril's recipes are things that I have been making myself for years and most of his recipes are so close to mine that I know they're good.
You can't go wrong with either book. Better yet, do as I did and just buy both.
Note: Neither of these books are suitable for the 4-8 age group as specified in the publication details.
