Ethnic foods and international cuisine can be found at every street corner of
our cities and neighborhoods. Whether in restaurants, diners, food trucks or grocery stores, the varied and flavorful dishes brought to the United States by generations of immigrants stand out among the most important contributions to America's rich multicultural heritage, and have been welcomed enthusiastically by its inhabitants.

Featuring a sampling of well-known dishes from around the world (with a few
health conscious and time-saving variations) – including Colombian Sancocho (cover) – this book seeks to honor the vast array of tasty ethnic and foreign recipes introduced into our country over time, and the cultural values and traditions that are preserved through them.

"A vibrant culinary take on the American melting pot via an international
array of recipes and flavors." – Kirkus Review

"Famous Dishes from Around the World is recommended over and above other
introductory ethnic cookbooks because of its recognizable national dishes, its diversity,
its attention to healthy ingredients, and the ease with which the recipes can be cooked
in the kitchen." – Midwest Book Review

"Bilingual cookbook feeds belly and brain…" – Mary Bilyeu/ The (Toledo) Blade

"Me encantan los libros de cocina…. Este libro que veis es especial…"
– La Cocina de Rebeca

"...a smashing new bilingual alphabet/activity exercise book that will dazzle kids with the (literary) fun of fitness...an inclusive, inspiring, vibrant source of learning for children (age 3 and up) and adults, parents, caretakers, and educators."

Moonstone Press LLC, established in 2001, publishes high-quality photography-based books in English and Spanish for children ages 2-14 and adults. We value excellence in photography and feel that children interact in a special way with real-life, beautiful images. Whatever the subject, photos have a strong impact on our society, can provide positive role models, and have the ability to bring about change.

Because we live in an inter-connected world, we are also aware of the vast tapestry of ethnic groups that make up American culture and enrich our lives. We feel it is important to honor this diversity and decided to make a number of our titles bilingual, not only because Spanish is already widely spoken throughout North America, but also because it is one of the most popular foreign language electives in our schools. With more than 50 million Latinos living in the United States as one of the fastest growing minorities, and with one in four people under the age of 18, the role of Hispanics in the lives of our country’s children will be significant for many years to come.

Please join our team in exploring and celebrating books for home, school, and the community as we offer new titles to educate and captivate our readers.
