Cooking Up World History Multicultural Recipes and Resources by Patricia C. Marden, Suzanne I. Barchers

Take students on a culinary trip around the world and introduce them to other cultures through the recipes, research, readings, and related media offered in this tasty resource. More than 20 countries and regions frequently studied in elementary and middle schools are represented. Each chapter has a brief introduction that describes the cookery of a culture, five to six recipes that provide a complete meal, research questions that connect the culture and food to history, and an annotated bibliography of reading resources and media. Great for social studies and for multicultural extensions. Grades K-6.
