“Both titles [Holiday Cooking Around the World and Cooking the East African Way] are excellent choices for beginning cooks, with sample menus and shopping lists, glossaries of equipment and ingredients, and clear directions. Despite being tailored to younger readers, the recipes are sophisticated enough that even experienced chefs will enjoy making the hearty, grown-up dishes.”

School Library Journal

“Glossy covers, pictures throughout, and well-designed layouts add to the overall appeal of these volumes [Holiday Cooking Around the World and Cooking the West African Way].”
