World Kitchen: Family Recipes from Around the World

Abigail Wheatley has carefully chosen a wide range of recipes that bring readers on a journey across countries and continents. From Sandra’s hot chocolate in Spain, to Sunha’s courgette pancakes in South Korea, this book truly brings readers on a diverse journey through the medium of food. At its core this is a recipe book and offers step-by-step accounts on how to recreate the food at home using easy to follow instructions and guidelines for budding chefs.

Peppered throughout the book are interesting factual sections on cooking and food facts such as cooking tools from around the world and an overview of international herbs and spices. Succulent and mouth-watering delicacies such as chocolate chip cookies, spiced chickpeas, milk and honey pudding are further enhanced by the vivid illustrations of Chaaya Prabhat. Every single page oozes with colour and invites the reader to try to recreate a recipe at home. Author and illustrator have clearly worked in tandem together to create such a delightful collection.

This book would be an excellent gift for any child with an interest in cooking. Families would certainly enjoy exploring this book together as they develop their palates and embark on a culinary journey. All of the recipes featured are vegetarian, with the options of making them vegan, nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free with the instructions to guide on this. 

This is truly a book that can ignite a child’s love of cooking as well as expanding their international knowledge.
