Cuisines from World Cultures

posted Apr 13, 2020, 10:02 AM by Susan Capwell
11th and 12th graders working with ELA teacher Nancy Raymond took a deep dive into world cuisine last semester, and are offering their class cookbook for the community to peruse. 

From the introduction: 
"When we understand the world we live in, we better understand ourselves. When we acknowledge what makes us similar, we celebrate all the ways we are different. One commonality people around the world share is  the love of food. Our unique food histories, our traditional food past-times. Our rich food memories. Extensive cultural influences impact what we eat; this holds true no matter where one calls home. This cookbook is a compilation of learning. Students were challenged to immerse themselves in an exploration of cultures through an examination of what those cultures eat. We then broke bread together, enjoying the traditional foods of these cultures that each student cooked and brought in to class to share. For some students, this was the first time cooking, for other students the research was the challenge, but for all students it was a time to break bread together and share information about the varied peoples around the world. We hope you enjoy our stories and recipes as much as we enjoyed exploring and writing about them."
