What fun! This new book from Geography Matters is just the thing for adding spice to your world studies! (Pun intended.)
—Jean Hall, Eclectic Homeschool Online
I’ve always liked the idea of sharing an international meal at the end of a study in geography. Whether it’s with just your family or with a house full of friends, the children can present their geography research in word, song, artwork, or costume. Eat Your Way Around the World will help you with the food. The recipes are arranged by continent and represent the most popular dishes for each country. My favorites are tasty Italian minestrone soup and Indian chicken curry. But I’ve also served French onion soup, New Zealand kiwis, and English cucumber sandwiches and scones. Among the recipes are insights into dining etiquette. In France bread is served on the tablecloth and usually not buttered. Food facts are also sprinkled throughout. After instructions on how to grow a South American pineapple, you can read that this fruit was brought to Europe by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and became a symbol of hospitality. Cut and staple together the book’s authentic-looking passport and each child will have a place to collect the seals from the different countries studied.

I'd been looking for a book with international recipes that I could do at home for a long time and this turned out to be the perfect book! I look forward to continuing to use the book. Thank you for writing such an easy book with such exotic recipes!

Preparing theme meals with my daughter has been a blessing to me, it gives us a chance to cook together and talk about the various cultures and foods. Mostly I stand in the kitchen and talk, assuming the role of her assistant and helping her out when needed. The variety of cooking has increased her kitchen confidence and abilities, besides awakening her taste buds to new foods.
