Reviews - What do customers think about Cooking Around the World All-in-One for Dummies?

A Beginner's book on International Cuisine  Dec 12, 2005
This is a beginner's book on how to cook international cuisine. It covers 8 cuisines, among them Japanese, Chinese, Italian, and French. It is very thorough, and covers ingredients, techniques, courses, and other useful information in each section. While it is not meant to be the ultimate authority on international cuisine, it gives the reader a way to get started in any of these cuisines.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in cooking, beginner or experienced, and would hope that this book can help the reader "broaden their horizons" on the world of international cuisine.
 
Great way to sample, Ingredients can be hard to find.  May 22, 2005
I adore this book. It's a great way to sample each individual cookbook without having to splurge on the full text! For example, I like Chinese, Italian, and Mexican, but always wanted to try French and Greek. The directions are very clear, but a lot of the ingredients are hard to find. Luckily, I live in an area with a lot of little ethnic areas, so I can find most items. This could cause a problem if you don't (ordering the items from the internet would get really expensive). Yet, once you get a hold of this book, you know that maybe you can't find a lot of the items for say, Indian cooking, then at least you didn't waste your money on that full text, without being able to make anything. Once you have everything, though, you can cook like a pro!
