Holidays of the World Cookbook for Students, 2nd Edition: Updated and Revised

Front Cover

The best way to learn about other ethnic groups is to experience that culture directly. Unfortunately, to travel to foreign places isn't often possible. Giving students the opportunity to learn about and enjoy ethnic customs and holidays through food is a great solution.

This new edition of Holidays of the World Cookbook for Students provides detailed information about the holidays of nations around the world and presents a multitude of selected recipes that are ideal for each celebration. The recipes appear with each country entry, and the countries are arranged in alphabetical order within each region: Africa, Asia and the South Pacific, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and North America. With recipes especially adapted for preparation by student chefs, this cookbook is especially appropriate for students in grades 9–12 who are either researching holiday customs and foods, or planning to prepare ethnic meals or dishes.
