How to Begin Creating Cooking Links in an Integrated Food Curriculum

When planning any hands-on cooking for young learners I always begin with a set of questions. Below is the set I have asked over and over again, of myself, my colleagues, and educators and administrators in programs that have asked me to create curriculum for them. The answers to these questions help me to think about what cooking projects might work best meeting the faculty where they are in their own cooking skills.

When thinking about hands-on cooking with the children,
tell me a little bit about…
  • Which cooking projects have been successful?
  • Which cooking projects have not worked at all?
  • Which cooking projects do you never tire of preparing?
  • What concerns do you have about food allergies in your program?
