Reviews

"This 4-volume set contains more than 700 recipes from 57 countries around the world. While the recipes were selected to reflect both traditional national dishes as well as modern lifestyles, the editor has tried to balance authenticity with ease of preparation. ... The arrangement of the set makes it very accessible. ... All entries include several sources for further study, including books, films, and Websites. ... Most entries include roughly 10 black-and-white photographs. Volume 4 includes an excellent index, which provides access by region, recipe name, and type of food. A table of measurements and conversions, a guide to getting started with cooking, and a glossary of cooking terms are repeated in the front of each volume." -- ARBA (2002)

"A disappointing effort...the deficiencies of this set do not make it a worthwhile purchase." -- School Library Journal (May 2002)

— School Library Journal

"This set comes from a veteran in foreign cookery and a well-respected reference book publisher and so the reader is in for an authentic culinary treat. The undertaking was ambitious. The set contains more than 700 recipes representing 57 countries. The editors sought help of specialists from various countries to insure accuracy...The measurements and conversions alone are interesting. These might provide a math class with some good experience in converting recipes from U.S. to metric or vice versa. This set might be helpful when visiting a foreign country. A reader may be tempted to try some of the native favorites instead of limiting yourself to cokes and hamburgers." -- Catholic Library World (June -- August 2002)
