Eat Around the World
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to take your kids on an around the world adventure sampling food from different cultures? I found one mom doing this without even leaving her town of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Sasha Martin of Global Table Adventure is cooking recipes from one country at a time, one week at a time while helping her family and her readers learn about international food like a local. Her blog includes recipes for the featured meal of the week, techniques on how to cook different food and even an interactive map tracking her alphabetical progress as she cooks across the globe. And not to worry, Sasha does all her shopping locally, and you can too. What a fun way to teach your kids about the world and how food, common to us all, is cooked and prepared. You can even expand on the meal concept and explore the culture further – what are schools like in the country of the week, what do kids do for fun on the weekends, what music is popular and even how girls celebrate their first periods, one more example that we each have so much in common with each other no matter what country we live in.
