Chef Emeril Lagasse helped younger kids take their first steps into the kitchen with his New York Times best-selling cookbook for children titled Emeril’s There’s a Chef in My Soup! (2002). He then kicked it up a notch for older kids and adults in another New York Times best-seller written especially for families, Emeril’s There’s a Chef in my Family! (2004). Now, Chef Emeril is back with a cookbook that really takes you places in Emeril’s There’s a Chef in My World! (HarperCollins Children’s Books, October 2006).
Emeril Lagasse knows that we’re all part of one big global family, and a great way to learn about other cultures is through their food. Take your family on a delicious journey to Italy, Spain, Vietnam, India, West Africa, Nicaragua, and many more places, just by cooking and enjoying food at your table.
Best of all, kids of all ages and adults can use this new cookbook together. There are 75 new recipes from around the globe including Thai Coconut Soup with Chicken and Shrimp, Jamaican Jerked Chicken with Barbecue Sauce and Toad in the Hole. These recipes are perfect for daily meals, special occasions, and everything in-between. You can make a meal with dishes from one region or mix it up for a truly international feast! You’ll get cooking tips galore and important safety precautions so your time in the kitchen is both fun and safe.
This is a great cookbook for kids, but adults will love it too! And everyone will enjoy the travel photos, flags and cultural “Did You Know” trivia from around the world that illustrate every page.
