Empowering local people to develop and support projects that will enhance our shared communal spaces
The main idea is to interest primary school aged kids in cooking and learning about international communities at the same time. Throughout all three UK lockdowns I have been running unique online cooking classes for kids initiative with part of the funds raised having been donated to the NHS Coronavirus fund. The cookbook will be based on the most interesting and unique recipes from 25 countries of the world representing the communities we live in. For instance, in the Enfield borough of London, there are Indian, Italian, Russian, Spanish and other communities children can learn about through cooking and engaging with thought-provoking illustrations. These will include interesting and educational facts about each countries and its people: cultural, historical, geographical, political etc. I believe there is a strong need to educate our children about the world around us while developing their cooking skills. Learning about our international communities is especially important now!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
1. Understanding about various communities (from all around the world) we and our kids live within 2. Inspiring independing cooking skills 3. Bringing families closer together through cooking international recipes and learning about various cultures together 4. Teaching kids about the values of the globalised world and that we are all part the 'global network' - which is particularly important post Covid lockdowns. 5. I will also be running online or face-to-face (the latter is ideal if lockdown ends) sessions for groups of local kids and for local schools to demonstrate each of the recipes. This will be an amazing way to bring the book to life and involve all those children and bring schools on board as well.
