“This is a brilliant idea and a great cookbook for children. There are so many amazing flavors and ingredients from around the worldit's great to discover them and be inspired like this at a young age.”
—Gordon Ramsay

"International recipes for families interested in cooking a variety of world cuisines together... This colorful, amply illustrated cookbook emphasizes the educational, nutritional and social benefits of cooking with children...The emphasis here is on fun, collaboration, invention and food as an engaging art rather than exact science; ‘tasty tips' following recipes invite children to try variations (which always include a vegetarian option)...Recipes feel approachable...ingredients are laid out clearly, with equivalent temperatures and metric measurements... This cookbook offers complex, authentic international flavors without overcomplicating the process, and the result is something you'd really enjoy having for dinner... A deliciously engaging fusion of cookbook and cultural lesson."
—Kirkus Reviews

Media Reviews

“Mendez offers up such tantalizing facts to introduce featured recipes from respective countries in this delightful procession of international culinary dishes…Myriad international cookbooks for kids have some great recipes, but few provide such a wealth of eclectic information to enhance the cultural aspects of food in addition to providing safety tips, tasty tips, and national facts…"One World Kids Cookbook" is a suitable literary appetizer for global nutrition or cultural studies.”—School Library Journal

"Sean Mendez‘s "One World Kids Cookbook" starts with a strong foreword by Ferran Adria... The book is full of healthy recipes from around the world. The recipes are easy to read, and easy to follow. They have step-by-step photos of children making them, and "tasty tips" to handle problems. There are not only recipes, but also plenty of maps, pictures, and illustrations from 19 countries-plus smoothies from more countries... I like this book. It has plenty of pictures and information—and most kids could make the recipes with a little help."—Super Chef

"One World Kids Cookbook is a cookbook for children and their families. It was written by Sean Mendez, and includes recipes from 19 different countries...I really like the pictures that show children making each recipe. All of the recipes look very tasty, even though some of them are different from what I would normally eat. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes good food and learning. It can help kids and their families learn about other countries while cooking."—IndyKids by Amelia Loeffler

"Kitchens are real-life laboratories where kids not only can explore the way foods and flavors combine, but also can improve their ability to read and follow directions. They learn new skills...They sample different foods and learn to appreciate the work that goes into producing a meal—the work that Mom and Dad have been doing for them since they were born....A new cookbook, "One World Kids Cookbook: Easy, Healthy and Affordable Family Meals"...also teaches kids about foods from different cultures....[and] provides step-by-step photos of children cooking each dish.... healthy eating adventures for the whole family."—

"Big up to all the young people who helped to create this fabulocious book! I think it's fantastic when young people get into the kitchen and express themselves through flavors and recipes; and with this book, I'm certainly inspired!"—Levi Roots

"One World Kids Cookbook is a pick for kids in grades 4-6 and offers a blend of healthy cooking and international recipes the entire family can use. Dishes from around the world offer insights into various ethnic varieties while photos of children from around the world, kitchen tips, vegetarian substitutions for meats, and more create a lovely blend of geography and cultural insights and culinary fun. A top recommendation, this will introduce kids to foreign foods."Midwest Book Review
