Eat Your Way Around the World

Image of Eat Your Way Around the World


Eat Your Way Around the World is a cookbook containing recipes for complete meals from countries all over the world. Each recipe has been adapted for use with readily available and affordable ingredients. In addition to recipes, the book is full of fun cultural information, food trivia, and etiquette hints. One of my favorite features of the book is the Passport. In the Appendix, you will find a passport and passport stamps that you can copy. You can create a passport for each of their children and let them put a stamp in it every time they “visit” a new country by eating the food. Here are some things that people are saying about Eat Your Way Around the World:

You will really enjoy the recipes and country info included on each page. I got a copy a couple of weeks ago, and I love it!

What fun! This new book from Geography Matters is just the thing for adding spice to your world studies! (Pun intended.)
—Jean Hall, Eclectic Homeschool Online

I’ve always liked the idea of sharing an international meal at the end of a study in geography. Whether it’s with just your family or with a house full of friends, the children can present their geography research in word, song, artwork, or costume. Eat Your Way Around the World will help you with the food. The recipes are arranged by continent and represent the most popular dishes for each country. My favorites are tasty Italian minestrone soup and Indian chicken curry. But I’ve also served French onion soup, New Zealand kiwis, and English cucumber sandwiches and scones. Among the recipes are insights into dining etiquette. In France bread is served on the tablecloth and usually not buttered. Food facts are also sprinkled throughout. After instructions on how to grow a South American pineapple, you can read that this fruit was brought to Europe by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and became a symbol of hospitality. Cut and staple together the book’s authentic-looking passport and each child will have a place to collect the seals from the different countries studied.
