Using an adventure story to attract young readers to the fun of cooking and eating more fruits and veggies, Gracie Cavnar's book follows Ottavio Fornero, a pint-sized member of Marco Polo's famous expedition as he discovers wondrous foods through the rich cultural traditions of people along the old Silk Road. As Ottavio journeys from Venice to the Middle East, cooks and readers as young as seven learn thirty easy-to-follow recipes inspired by the trip.
The 160-page book, written for children seven to eleven, is the first in a series of three. Volume One: Leaving Home engages young and old alike, setting the stage for parents to share their family's long-held food traditions plus create new ones with their children. Deliciously descriptive, the reader can almost smell the famous rosemary-laced Fornero focaccia and cheesy, cinnamon spiked losyns.
A medieval world map showing Polo's actual expedition routes, 122 original watercolor illustrations by Anni Matsick, glossaries of cooking terms, techniques and utensils, and an extensive illustrated history of ingredients, along with adaptations, serving suggestions and historic trivia complement the story and recipes.
