Product Description:

Would you like some history with your dinner? How about some geography and an adventure story for dessert? Part adventure story, part cookbook, this book will whet your appetite. The book begins with a story about a young boy named Tavi who goes on a sea adventure with his friend, Marco Polo. Tavi is what we would call a foodie in modern terms. He finds interesting spices and foods on the journey. After the story, the next section of the book contains 30 recipes. Some of the recipes include Mediterranean staples (like focaccia and pita breads), ravioli, and risotto. Colorful illustrations are included. Next is a glossary showing the ingredients and their origins. Some of these include: artichokes, black pepper, spinach and cinnamon. The last part of the book covers kitchen sanitation, safety, utensils, and terminology.

Add this book to a geography or history lesson to create a unit study on ancient cultures or world foods. You could even use this to supplement Greek or Latin foreign language class. Buono appetito! 155 pgs, pb. ~Sara
