Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-These wonderful series entries will pique the interest of curious young chefs and the adults who assist them in creating the delectable recipes. Revised and expanded, these editions will appeal to the health-conscious as well, as several low-fat and vegetarian recipes have been added. The books open with an introduction to the land and cultural aspects of each cuisine, followed by a discussion of safety measures, cooking utensils and terms, special ingredients, and healthy cooking tips. A discussion of the "table" comes next, followed by more than a dozen recipes for various meals and occasions, including holiday and festival fare. Christian also describes a Spanish market and her experience of sharing a simple supper with a shepherd. Weston emphasizes the role of fresh foods such as wild plants, vegetables, and fish in Japanese cooking. It is apparent that, in this culture, food selection, cooking, and presentation are considered an art. The books are well designed, attractively arranged, and have lots of color photos. Recipe names are in English with the Spanish or Japanese equivalents next to them. Tasteful titles that will be popular and useful.

Spain brings to mind the sound of castanets, the feel of the hot sun, the spectacle of the bullfight, and the taste of hot, spicy food. Read the first page

This is a kids book- it only has about 16 recipes in it, but we tried 8 of them and they were all hits with the boys. Nice background information about Spain.

Only 15 recipes in this book Feb. 19 2013
By D B Crisp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The easy menu ethnic series is designed for younger children to introduce them to worldly cooking. It contains background into the food, land and its people, extensive glossary and a menu divided into the usual sections you see in a cookbook.

The book is only 74 pages and contains the usual spanish recipes such as gazpacho, paella and albondigas. However there are actually very few recipes, only 15 real recipes which is a terrible ratio compared to others in the series.

This is available in places as a PDF so look around and get yourself a bargain rather than the expensive hard copy book (I have obtained the entire library of these books by hunting the online PDF's).
