New Internationalist books and publications


"This is a brilliant idea and a great cookbook for children. There are so many amazing flavours and ingredients from around the world – it's great to discover them and be inspired like this at a young age." - Gordon Ramsay.

"Books like this allow food to have an important social value." - Ferran Adrià, named world’s greatest chef five times by Restaurant magazine.

"Big up to all the young people who helped to create this fabulocious book! I think it's fantastic when young people get into the kitchen and express themselves through flavours and recipes; and with this book, I'm certainly inspired!" - Levi Roots, founder of Reggae Reggae Sauce.

'The book has started a mini revolution in our kitchen - my seven year-old son read it cover to cover twice and then started picking out things he wanted to try. Yesterday he wanted the Russian salad and announced that it was the most delicious tea he'd ever had. This child is one of the pickiest eaters you could imagine and has never agreed to even taste a chickpea or a cooked carrot, so it was great - and now he wants Jollof rice with kidney beans, something else he's always refused to try. He loves the fact that all the meat dishes suggest a veggie alternative, having declared himself veggie a couple of years ago. He wants to cook tea with me one evening a week choosing a recipe from the book! Happy mummy.' - Jo Wilding, barrister and author of Don't Shoot the Clowns.

'A definite must-have for any classroom and kitchen shelf!' - Amazon 5-Star Customer Review.

"A beautiful and inspiring family cookbook." - Marco Pierre White British celebrity chef, restaurateur and television personality.

Kids Cook the World UK Launch took place on Saturday 24th September at Whole Foods Market, 63-97 Kensington High Street. It was a great success with many of the families and children who participated in trying out the recipes coming along to the event, as well as the Mayor of Kensington, the Spanish Ambassador and High Commisioner of Jamaica.

This healthy eating cookbook is aimed at encouraging young people to think about what they eat through emphasing the importance of a balanced diet. This cookbook contains kitchen tips and suggests vegetarian substitutes for the meat recipes. Kids Cook the World aims to instil a passion for good, wholesome healthy food as well as a passion for life.

Kids Cook the World includes fabulous dishes from around the world, from jollof rice to fajitas with easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step colour photos throughout.
