Okay, now I’m hungry.

This unique atlas is a wonderful guide to the foods around the world. Visit the 6 continents in any order to find out the unique food and tastes in that part of the world. An Ocean section is also included.

Aunt Bertha and her food truck are your guides to this culinary feast. A handy “HOW TO USE THIS ATLAS” 2-page spread is the place to begin to see how each section works.

This is not a recipe book book but there are several here you can try. How about one of these tasty sounding treats:

  • Poutine Sauce from Canada
  • Chimichurri Sauce from Argentina
  • Cherry Kompot from Bulgaria
  • Moon Cakes from China
  • Rolex Sandwich from Uganda
  • PO’E Dessert form Tahiti

You will also find true and false quizzes (with answers in the back) and a set of visual games. A chapter on the challenges the world faces feeding the world is a great wrap up to the book. We all like to eat so this guide is the perfect way to expand one’s knowledge of food beyond what is in your own fridge.

Now for the GIVEAWAY! One lucky reader will receive a copy of the ULTIMATE FOOD ATLAS and something to munch on while enjoying this book: It’s a 1 lb. tin of cookies form Davids!

This is for U.S. addresses only. To enter just leave a comment below describing your favorite food to eat or create. The winner will be revealed next Friday and you have until 11 pm EDT on August 18th to enter.

My favorite food right now is the freshly made Zucchini bread I just took out of the oven!



Coming up next week is another edition of MARVELOUS MIDDLE GRADE MONDAY! It’s here I share highlights from other individuals blogging about middle grade books. Many of the posts will have reviews, interviews, and tips on writing. Take a look at PAST MMGM POSTS.

It’s easy to join the lineup. All you have to do is email me the title of the book or feature and a link to your blog at gpcolo[at]gmail[dot]com

Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so it gets sorted accurately–and don’t forget to say what you’re featuring) You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening (11 PM Eastern Time) in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday.

*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen reviews ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me.

    My favorite food is sushi and I love making my own. I’ve also recently tried making veggie burgers and I’ll never buy them again after realizing how easy they are to make and how I can customize the seasons for our tastes.

  4. Deb Plano says:

    I still love turkey with all the fixings.

  5. Well, I do have a terrible sweet tooth. I guess my favorite thing to make would be rhubarb crumble. I haven’t made it in a while, but maybe you’ve inspired me! This looks like a great book, and those cookies look amazing! Thanks for the post.
