Terry Touff Cooper and Marilyn Ratner 1974
illustrated by Tony Chen
I originally checked this book out of the library years ago and loved it. Then it was just my luck to find it at a thrift store. It has great illustrations and a page of cooking term definitions, a map, and information about each country highlighted. There are plenty of children's cookbooks out there, but I think I like this one best. The recipes are simple and use easy to find ingredients.
We've tried most of the dishes. Some were a bigger hit than others- the Irish Broonie is really good, but no one liked the Fufu from Ghana. Even if not used as a cookbook, the text about the country and its food still makes for good reading and learning.
