"Every now and then along comes "A World of Food", an informed and informative series of 'how to' books for kids that simply stands out from the crowd. Clara House Books (an imprint of The Oliver Press) has newly published a truly outstanding eight volume series of social studies titles designed specifically for students in grades 4 through 8. Each one of these sturdily bound, 32-page, profusely illustrated compendiums addresses the food, religion, landscape, climate, farming, crops, holidays, festivals, culture, etiquette, and global influences of a particular country, along with three distinctively characteristic recipes. Enhanced with the inclusion of foreign word meanings, country and world maps, glossaries, indexes, and thematically appropriate web sites, the individual titles comprising this impressive series includes The Caribbean; China; France; India; Italy; Lebanon; Mexico; and Nigeria. Each of these thoroughly up-to-date and thoroughly 'kid friendly' titles is appropriate and highly recommended as a home-schooling curriculum supplement, as well as strongly advised for both school and community library reference collections for young readers." said.

"Great Indian cookbook! Unlike many books, instructing us to use storebought spice mixes (masalas), this gives numerous recipes for making them ourselves, as well as countless recipes for using them in. I like all of the chutneys, raitas, and pachadi recipes - more than I have seen anywhere else. There are a lot of southern Indian recipes - my favorites. So many I want to try, but only so many meals in a day!" said.
