From School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Chef Seaver has created a solid cooking and learning experience for children. Including a variety of recipes, he covers the basics, discussing special seasonings and ingredients, foods from other countries, and nutrition, as well as how kids can grow some of their own foods. Chapters are broken down by month, with each section featuring relevant recipes. For instance, "March" includes ideas for an international feast, with recipes for Mediterranean hummus, West African Mafe, and Italian asparagus salad, while "September" contains some helpful tips for bag lunches that readers can use for back-to-school preparations. The book incorporates some intriguing asides as well: profiles of those in the food industry, the origins of some of these foods, tips for healthy eating, and more. Attractive photographs feature the mouth-watering foods mentioned. A fun, well-designed cookbook.—Cynde Suite, Bartow Cty. Lib. Syst., Adairsville, GA
