5.0 out of 5 stars Get Ready For Adventure! 11 May 2013
By Grandma
Format:Hardcover
There is nothing that I like better than sharing my love of cooking with my children and grandchildren, just as my Grandma did with me so long ago. I firmly believe that the two most important things you can teach your children are how to read and how to feed themselves, so I love to have "kids in the kitchen" - and they are far more capable than you think they might be.

Cooking together is not only a great way to have fun and learn life skills, it is also an easy way to sneak in a few lessons in math, reading, geography - even history and science. (Every child I know has loved to watch Alton Brown's mad kitchen science show, Good Eats.) Matthew Locricchio's International Cookbooks for Kids are a fantastic resource to help with that.

My granddaughter and I often cooked from The International Cookbook for Kids back when we were homeschooling and I've been recommending that book to parents & grandparents for years, so I was delighted to see Locricchio's latest, The 2nd International Cookbook for Kids. These are not by any stretch of the imagination what you might think of as a "kid's cookbook."

There are no mixes and no cute little assembly tricks, no Candlestick or Bunny Rabbit Salad, no sandwiches that look like sailboats and nothing has been dumbed down. You'll find no American cheese or even much hamburger. All of the recipes that Matthew presents are REAL food - the kind that you go down to the produce department or out to the garden to buy. Whole food, full of vitamins and nutrients, attractively presented and most of all - INTERESTING. (Yes, they will love curry!

Whole food, full of vitamins and nutrients, attractively presented and most of all - INTERESTING. (Yes, they will love curry!)

One of the things that I liked best about Matthew's first book, The International Cookbook for Kids , is that it included recipes for things like how to make your own stock. Loccrichio has repeated that trend in The 2nd International Cookbook for Kids. You'll find recipes not only for making your own soup stock, but also baking chapatis (a stunningly good and very easy Indian bread), grinding your own Thai red curry paste and garam masala from India, even producing your own paneer, an easy-to-make fresh cheese similar to farmer's cheese that is commonly used in Indian cooking. Along the way he also includes directions for cooking perfect rice, as well as clear illustrations of various knife skills and techniques like how to clean a leek. Many of the recipes are suitable for vegetarians and, unlike most cookbooks intended for children, there are few sweets.

Written at about a fourth grade reading level, the print is large and easy to read, the directions detailed, laid out in a way that exactly follows the logical assembly of the dish and very clear. There is a large full color picture of every recipe. Like his first, The 2nd International Cookbook for Kids is a book that will be very easy to cook from. Grandma even learned a new trick or two herself.

Grandma's $0.02 - Cooking is one of the most important skills you will pass along. The 2nd International Cookbook for Kids is a fantastic place to start the adventure. Highly recommended for young people of every age beginning at about age 8 or 9/Grade 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooking With Kids, the 2nd International Cookbook For Kids 28 Feb. 2013
By Ginny Mapes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Matthew Locricchio has done it again, with his 2nd international cookbook for kids. His first book used the "big four" (China, France, Italy, and Mexico.) This new book features the food of Greece, India, Thailand, and Brazil. He states that these countries are the next "big four" of world cooking and remain his favorites in his own kitchen. Flags of the country near the recipe title, identify the country of origin.

Same bright format. The ingredients are sent off in a colored box. Then, On Your mark...Get set...Cook! Chef's tips are given.

He always encourages fresh, locally grown products, and essential ingredients for the kitchen are listed at the end of the book along with cooking terms, equipment and utensils. There is also an index.

Locricchio has a team who helped him put this book together. Photos are bright and the food makes the reader want to dash into the kitchen and start cooking. Bright and beautiful, teens, as well as adults will enjoy this book. Another winner! A++++++

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed 16 Sept. 2013
By bmkd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The title should be "The 2nd international cookbook for teenagers." I bought this book because my 4-year-old son shows an interest in cooking, and I was looking for some fun, child appropriate recipes to cook with him. Don't get me wrong, this is a good cookbook, but I think it would be great for older children and not for little ones. The recipes seem to be fairly easy to prepare and the ingredients are not too exotic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow instructions 7 Mar. 2013
By A. Looby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really like this cookbook. It's written into very easy to follow steps and at a level for kids. I like that it's written to the kids, who have adults helping them, instead of the other way around. It's on a kid's level, but it's never condescending. There are basic instructions at the beginning on how to work in a kitchen. There are tips like "wash your hands first and often", "dress the part of a chef", and "dont' forget to turn of the stove". There are knife tips (which are basic enough that I got tips from them) and in the back there is an illustrated glossary of cooking terms and equipment. There is also a really informative list of essential ingredients with tips on choosing produce and herbs as well as making your own bread crumbs.

The recipes are broken down into 7 sections.

Soups include a basic chicken stock as well as a more advanced Thai Shrimp Soup, for a total of 7 recipes.

Appetizers, Salads and Relishes has a recipe for Greek Yogurt that I fully intend to use from here forward! I didn't realize it was so easy to make my own! There are a total of 11 recipes here.

Noodles, Rice and Beans has 5 recipes. The tips on the rice recipes have informed me of why I cannot ever make good rice! You have to rinse it. I never knew that.

Vegetables, Potatoes and Curry Paste has 6 recipes, including a delicious looking Greek roasted potatoes. The recipe for Spanakopita is 4 pages, although that is because of large type and photos!

An Indian Feast has 11 recipes that range from Paneer (cheese) to Lamb Curry. These are a bit more adventurous than our regular cuisine, but I'm excited to try.

Main Dishes has 11 recipes. The recipes seem long and kinda complicated, but the majority of the ingredients are readily available in my area so I'm looking forward to at least trying them.

My favorite section, Dessert, only has 4 recipes. I was really hoping for more here, but maybe there just aren't a lot of Greek, Thai, Brazilian or Indian desserts? I really don't know. One is simply for berries and yogurt. That's a bit of a let down.

The thing that bothered me throughout the cookbook though was the photography. Most of the food didn't look that good in the pictures. On one, orange slices had black lines all over them and in another the meats looked hard and dry. I don't think I'd want to serve something that looked like that.

I am interested in the first edition of the series, which focuses on Mexico, Italy, China and France. I think I may end up finding more in that one than I found in this one.

The main usage of this is to go along with country studies we're doing in our homeschool courses. I like taking a country and learning as much about it as we can each month. I've been searching the Internet for recipes and I'm glad to have a resource like this for our lessons.
