Exploring Cultures in the Kitchen is a series of children’s cookbooks that help children understand the cultures of different countries with a few easy recipes that showcase each country. One of the installments is Indian Culture and Cooking. This book is for children ages 8-11. This book is well-written and easy to understand; although it’s written principally for children, adults will also enjoy the information that is simplified for the age group. The recipes are also well-written and easy to understand, so children can make these recipes, but definitely with adult supervision because the stove and knives are involved. Also included are step-by-step instructions for basic cooking skills that are needed to make the recipes. There are few recipes, but they are for the most popular Indian dishes which are perfect for an introduction to the flavors of the country.

The cultural information includes fun things that children can relate to such as holidays and celebrations, birthday celebrations, and weddings, as well as an explanation of industries that keep the people working. It also includes explanations of the ingredients and spices used in the recipes.

The book is colorful and includes photographs of Indian people in different scenarios and of every recipe. This is a fun book for children and makes it fun to cook with them in the kitchen. Most children who like to spend time in the kitchen will enjoy this book.
