Food Atlas' takes readers on a global discovery tour of the ingredients, dishes, and culinary curiosities that characterize the world's continents. The book features appealing illustrations and concise captions organized into 39 regional maps that focus on one country. The book opens with a world map showing the six continents and 50 countries. The featured countries are: North America - Canada, United States, Mexico; South America - Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Chile; Europe - Great Britain, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Hungary, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece; Asia - Russia, Lebanon, Turkey, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, India; Africa - Morocco, Egypt, Angola, South Africa, Madagascar; Oceania - Australia, New Zealand, Fiji Islands. * Each chapter opens with a continent map showing the countries, each with a selected food or ingredient of importance and introductory text. * Every country map has a brief introduction outlining the most important features of the cuisine and culture of food, such as late night meals or traditional morning beverages. * The most important foods grown or produced in that country are illustrated within its borders. * Local and specialty dishes and beverages that make up the country's cuisine fill the rest of the page. * Sometimes a food ingredient is shown in a specific place; e.g., the Khasi mandarin in India's Meghalaya region, which is where it and all other citrus fruits originated; or ostrich eggs in Southern Africa, where the bird lives in savannah and desert habitats. * Oceans and seas show marine animals that add to the country's diet. The book closes with a world map that shows how explorers carried some of the world's most widely eaten foods from their land of origin to new lands, where they now fill grocery stores and markets around the world; e.g. rice and citrus came from China; coffee from Ethiopia; black pepper from Vietnam; and so on for all 23 world-travelling foods. Country by country around the globe, readers will discover the gastronomical wonders of the globe in all their delicious variety.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This appealing, oversize book explores the foods and dishes associated with a number of countries around the world... Fun for food-obsessed little browsers.--Donna Scanlon"Booklist" (10/01/2017)
This book provides geography lessons that you can almost taste... Each country map has a brief introduction outlining the most important features of the cuisine and culture of food, such as late night meals or traditional morning beverages. The most important foods grown or produced in that country are illustrated within its borders while local and specialty dishes and beverages that make up the country's cuisine fill the rest of the page. It's a fascinating way to look at the world.--Christine Davis"City Parent" (10/01/2017)
This enticing oversize book covers ancient and modern fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, seafood, and meat from all regions of the world, from humitas in Ecuador to yemista in Greece and tandoori chicken in India and wontons in China. Full-page spreads depict maps of the countries, speckled with the dishes eaten there. Each spread includes an introductory paragraph that offers general information on the cuisine of the region (for instance, cured pork, potatoes, cereal, and fish are common in Germany). Playful illustrations accompany brief descriptions of the foods... A browsable book that will spur discussion and lead to a greater awareness of cultural differences.--Sharon Verbeten"School Library Journal" (11/01/2017)
