Another book we love is The Sandwich Swap, by Her Majesty Queen Rania Abdullah of Jordan (with Kelly DiPucchio and illustrated by Tricia Tusa, Disney Hyperion Books, 2010). It’s not often you read a book written by a Queen! Queen Rania wrote this book about her experiences as a child. The Sandwich Swap shows us that though we’re all different, friendship can see beyond differences to focus on what we have in common.
Food brings people together, no matter how old or young they are. At Project CHEF we cook with kids, teachers, parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles, and volunteers. We have also cooked with seniors from Tapestry Retirement Community at Wesbrook Village. We believe that when people come together in the kitchen there is always an opportunity to learn from each other.
Are you looking for something to cook? It’s always more fun when YOU choose what’s for dinner, right? Searching for new recipes can help keep a cook inspired. Kid’s cookbooks make following a recipe easy with step-by-step instructions and pictures. Some great examples aimed for beginning-level cooks are Pretend Soup (1994, Tricycle Press), Honest Pretzels (1999, Tricycle Press) & Salad People (2005, Tricycle Press), written and illustrated by Mollie Katzen. Salad People is aimed at beginner-level chefs in the kitchen. It is a great place to start cooking, even for those who aren’t reading yet. Honest Pretzels is aimed at kids aged 8 and older, so they can cook with just a little adult assistance. Are you ready to get cooking?
Hello! Nice to Eat You ‘er Meet You
BC is blessed with a bounty of good food grown right on our doorstep. We get to enjoy what our farmers grow and producers make throughout the year. Many of these ingredients we recognize right away but others may cause us to pause, look at carefully and do a little research to find out what they are and how can we enjoy eating them.
