I Loved this book. The layout and content was exciting and fun, and I really wanted to make many of these recipes. The countries/areas/continents covered are as follows: Africa, Caribbean, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Middle East, Russia, and Vietnam. The recipes vary in complexity with a guide for parents on how difficult and dangerous they were, and how much help kids might require. While some of the recipes were not exactly authentic (fortune cookies, after all, are neither Chinese, nor are they consumed there at all), but most were different enough to get a curious palette interested, but not so foreign as to alienate the slightly pickier eater.
Each region gets its own mini-table of contents, separating the dishes by course (appetizers, salads, soups; main courses; desserts...) Each region also opens with a section about the cultures, tastes, available food resources, etc.; the writing therein is fun and simple, and I thoroughly enjoyed each aspect of this recipe book. I highly recommend this one.
