    This is the most excited I've been about a cookbook in ages. This book is a real treat! Big, beautiful design (reminds me of some scrapbook stuff I have!) lovely glossy pages with big pictures of recipes, and chock full of interesting recipes from nearly everywhere. There were recipes from America, of course, and Australia, Canada, South Africa, Ghana, England, France, Portugal, Japan, China, Laos, --I'm sure I'm forgetting several places.

Big, beautiful design (reminds me of some scrapbook stuff I have!) lovely glossy pages with big pictures of recipes, and chock full of interesting recipes from nearly everywhere. There were recipes from America, of course, and Australia, Canada, South Africa, Ghana, England, France, Portugal, Japan, China, Laos, --I'm sure I'm forgetting several places. My son ran off with the book to salivate over the pictures, I think. :-) There are recipes passed down in families, learned on missions, or just invented. The best part--many of the recipes include stories, traditions, or remembrances associated with them. I just spent a good part of the afternoon when I was supposed to be doing something else, reading all of these stories. Delightful, and a real keeper, along with being lovely enough to keep on a coffee table. Highly recommended.

    Take Up The White Man's Burden....... This is a pretty cookbook, but it has some problems. The first is that the photos only slightly resemble the recipes, which is odd. (Another reviewer has suggested that the publisher used stock photos, so that might very well be the case.) The second problem is that these recipes aren't all that "world-wide." They're mostly from the US with a few others thrown in. While the measurements have all been converted for the American cook, some of the ingredients ha Take Up The White Man's Burden....... This is a pretty cookbook, but it has some problems. The first is that the photos only slightly resemble the recipes, which is odd. (Another reviewer has suggested that the publisher used stock photos, so that might very well be the case.) The second problem is that these recipes aren't all that "world-wide." They're mostly from the US with a few others thrown in. While the measurements have all been converted for the American cook, some of the ingredients have not. "Tinned corned beef"? Um.... I'm not too sure where to find that in the US. As one might expect, the majority of the recipes are kid-friendly, with casseroles and crock-pot cookery dominating the scene. These are not dishes for the discriminating palate. (One of them is for a hot dog casserole; the contributor admits she learned it in a 7th grade cooking class at Brockbank Jr. High in Magna, Utah. Now, Brockbank is a fine school, but it's not known for its haute cuisine. ;) ) The biggest problem, however, is that no one has bothered to edit the little biographies and stories included with many recipes, and so very many of them are very imperialistic in tone. There is a great sense of all those non-white, non-Mormons out in the great big world as THE OTHER, the other who must be Westernized, Americanized, and Mormon-ized. It's embarrassing. Instead of editing stories to things like, "I learned this recipe from some neighbors while I was visiting Haiti," the publisher has left in bits of testimony meeting-type tales about how grateful the contributor was to be with such "humble" people and how very "different" they were...... it's all way too Rudyard Kipling. And embarrassing. Very embarrassing. I cringed a lot reading through this.

    Worldwide Ward Cookbook by Deanna Buxton I ordered this cookbook for our SIL for Christmas this year, as he loves to cook and collect cookbooks and I ordered it through Amazon and it came in the mail today. I spent a couple of hours going through this most amazing, wonderful cookbook.

I spent a couple of hours going through this most amazing, wonderful cookbook. I loved everything about this book, especially the colorfulpictures, the designs on each page, the little stories behind the recipes, a few photos of the people who submitted some of the recipes to make the book more personal. This is the first of a few more cookbooks from Deanna. She just came out with the Christmas Worldwide Cookbook and hear there's a Mother's Day Cookbook soon to come out. Another added plus to these cookbooks, is they are spiral-bound, so you lay them flat. Some of the different, moth-watering recipes are: Funeral Pototoes, Never Enough Guacamole, Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips, Gingerbread Pancakes, Navajo Fry Bread, Banana Applesauce Bread, Shrimp Tacos, Irish Pasties, Peruvian Stir-Fry, Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Southern Sweet Potato Casserole, Iraqi Rice, Taco Soup, Better-Than-A-Flue-Shot-Soup, Tortellini Salad, Cookie Salad, Orange Sherbet Jell-O, Fruit Soup, Peanut Butter Popcorn, Perusian Flan, Norwegian Porridge, Jewish Apple Cake, Whole Wheat Angel Food Cake and Pumpkin Fudge. There is one small section for our Prophet's recipes that is way cool. This would be the perfect gift to give at Christmas. The only minor problem I could see was the blue font for the submitters info was a tad bit hard to read. Forever Friends Rating 5 Stars by Teri Until Next Time, See You Around The Book Nook.

    I just checked this out of the library and haven't had a chance to make anything yet, but I plan to now buy my own copy. (attention family, it's going on my Amazon Christmas wish list!)I like that it has recipes from around the world that I am really likely to use and love from the Philippines, Asia, India, and so on. The little personal stories in there make it feel more personal and like you are getting a recipe handed down from a good friend, a tried and true recipe, and that's actually what I just checked this out of the library and haven't had a chance to make anything yet, but I plan to now buy my own copy.

    I love getting cookbooks from the library and reviewing them first to see if there's enough recipes I'm interested in to justify buying it. This is not one I'd own. It had a handful of recipes I'd like to try but for the most part it had a lot of recipes I already have in some variation or another or too many exotic ingredients that if I could find locally I don't know if I would be daring enough to try them.

    I read through all of the recipes in this book and picked out a dozen that I couldn't wait to try. So far every one that I have made has been DELICIOUS! I also really love all of the little stories and pictures that go along with the recipes. It is fun to see people making these recipes and hear why they are dear to them. I'm sure I will make many memories with these tasty meals. I read through all of the recipes in this book and picked out a dozen that I couldn't wait to try.

    There are several recipes I want to try in here. It is especially fun to read the stories behind some of the recipes. A few favorites I will have to try in the future, but overall, good cookbook. I wish there were more pictures of the recipes, but presentation is lovely. I like how it is separated into categories.

    This cookbook is filled with lots of yummy recipes. We have our favorites that we make time and time again. The sweet and sour meatballs are awesome, as are the chicken enchiladas. Several others are escaping my mind, but there are some good ones. It's also a very diverse cookbook. Some recipes are more complex than others, but that's what makes a good cookbook, right?

    I'd give it 5 stars except its too big for any shelf in my kitchen. Looking forward to trying some of the recipes . . . also like the little tidbits of information about the various dishes from throughout the world.

    I really enjoy this cookbook. There are some fun recipes from distant lands and some old favorites that have different twists. The pictures are fun and there are some great little snippets from the various contributors. I think it's a keeper and I want the new Christmas edition. I really enjoy this cookbook.

    My daughter and I spent the weekend enjoying this great cookbook. We also made a few of the recipes and they all turned out great. It was also fun to read all the stories that went along with some of the recipes.

    I got lots and lots of recipes from this book. I've tried 5 or 6 and probably 3 or 4 have made it into my cookbook. This is a cookbook I would seriously consider buying, but since I live in Provo, the good old library has it for FREE. I got lots and lots of recipes from this book.

    I was given this book last month and used it several times already. I like that it is a lot of basic recipes, whether here or across the world it is the food that is really on tables. Also, there are more exotic ones if I'm feeling up to it. I was given this book last month and used it several times already.

    Holy moly this book is fabulous. The variety of recipes is what sold me. And my two favorite recipes so far is the Mexican Rice (I have to keep all the ingredients on hand now) and the Potato Broccoli Cheese Soup. The only reason I didn't mark it as 5 was the lack of pictures. Holy moly this book is fabulous. The variety of recipes is what sold me.

    I was not impressed with this at all. I was expecting tried and true mormon recipes. I felt it was just another cookbook. Many of the ingredients are not readily available. The directions were not clearly layed out. Some ingredients are not clearly explained.

    I have to own this! I read it cover to cover at my sisters and it had such original recipes and fun stories. No gross ones!

    This is a beautiful cookbook--and not just because one of our neighbors designed it and another neighbor collected the recipes and stories.

    This is a good cookbook, but the best of this bunch in my opinion is the Mom's best worldwide ward cookbook. This is a good cookbook, but the best of this bunch in my opinion is the Mom's best worldwide ward cookbook.

    Just picked up this cookbook today. I'm loving the walk down memory lane. So many of the recipes are ones I've eaten over my lifetime. It's been fun to remember.
